Hi Everyone,

Those prayers are working Tyler is doing much better. Thank you all.

Hello Everyone,

What a week this has been! Things will get better, (I hope) We got him out of Greenville hospital where he was admitted and put on IV’s. Tyler was scanned, and then we were told he had two spots in his stomach. Said they didn’t understand why he was hurting. (You know what the first thing we thought…his cancer was back). So we took him to MUSC Hospital in Charleston, where he was admitted for a couple days. Getting IV’s and they gave him stuff to make him pee because he hadn’t in about five days. Tyler was still hurting and getting morphine pain medication. Here is what they said. The doctors at MUSC said that Tyler had taken so much pain medication that everything inside his intestines was hard as rocks. Said that this must have caused a infection. They told us that they were going to scope him but they never did. I never heard of such a thing so I called a nurse that I know she said that this is possible. Tyler is still hurting and we don’t know what to do. He has been through so much with the cancer that it has really messed his little body up.

Please keep him in your prayers. Tyler hurt so badly last night, he cried himself to sleep.

Thank all of you that continue to help us. You are angel’s here on earth. Tyler’s jaw surgery is still June 3rd. Thank you for our rooms Courageous Kids/Debby “flash” Stephenson and her husband Charlie. I want everyone to know that Courageous Kids are wonderful, loving and caring. It is the mission of Courageous Kids to “give the magic of hope” to our children and to allow these children to be “wonderfully ordinary” under very abnormal circumstances. And I also want to thank Happy Days for the food card and eighteen-dollar gas card. Happy Days have also been wonderful. Conner has been right there to help us when we need him. So thank you Happy Days so much.

Tyler has been admitted Greenville Children’s Hospital

Hi, Everyone

Today Tyler has been having a hard time he is currently at the Greenville Hospital very sick. The doctors are saying he may need to get surgery if he has a blockage in his stomach. He has been throwing up so much that he is now dry heaving. He is in quite a bit of pain, and crying often. The doctors have also said they have found a spot in his stomach, and I pray it’s not something bad. Please pray for Tyler he is going through a pretty rough weekend. Thanks everyone!

Hello Everyone,

We finally got the date of Tyler’s surgery. It is in six weeks on June 3rd, 8 o’clock at MUSC Hospital of Charleston. Dr. O’Neal said that he doesn’t think Tyler will be there more than a day or two. It will be according to how Tyler does if he will have to stay longer. I sure hope they don’t do this and send him home the first day. This is a major surgery when they have to cut his jaw open. They will cut his jaw again and scrape the bone down so it isn’t sticking through his skin and hurting him. Tyler’s jaw is affecting his speech and we have to ask him over and over what he’s saying. He has a hard time eating. Dr. O’Neal’s office made Ashley sign a paper saying that they are not reasonable for scarring or if they should hit a vein and something happen to Tyler. This will be a twenty-seven surgery for Tyler.

Our preacher, Rev Ronnie Powell said he was going to try to be at the hospital for Tyler’s surgery. I think we will need about three days motel and food just to be sure. The one thing all of us can do is pray for Tyler and ask God to not let him suffer. His legs hurt all the time to the point now that he’s not able to go to school. He takes pain medication most days and wears his brace. Tyler also needs the ear surgery. We were told that it may be too much to do both surgeries at one time. He still cannot hear out of one ear. Gosh my poor little man has been through so much.

Tyler is in God’s hands I have faith that God is going to get Tyler through all this Tyler has been so strong now for four years. Please keep storming heaven for Tyler. The cancer clinic just called (good news) and said that the spots in the top of Tyler’s leg are nothing to worry about. Thank God. Thank all of you for your prayers, kindness, love and support. Please keep Tyler and our family in your prayers.

Hi Everyone,

We just got home from a two-day stay in Charleston so Tyler could see his doctors. This isn’t good news at all. Tyler’s got to have more jaw surgery. The bone is just about to come through the skin and Dr. O’Neal said that he has to do something. He’s setting up surgery and will call us to bring him. Poor baby, I wish so much I could take his place and make it all go away for him. Tyler looked at me and said, “Nanny, get my Xbox and the movies ready. Looks like I’ll be stuck at this hospital a while.”

They said he shouldn’t be there but a day or two; that it depends on how he does. Then he will still have the ear surgery in June. Ashley said they don’t want to do both surgeries together; it may be too much. He still cannot hear in one ear. Dr. O’Neal did say he was talking to Dr. Betsy Davis and see if she wants to do some of her work while Tyler is in surgery. We won’t hear about the leg x-rays for a few days. I pray that the spots are nothing. Soon as we know something I will post it.
