Tyler’s still doing really well. He is playing and having a good time with his brother Jayden. He is still without pain in his jaw, but we will have to get in touch with Dr Rodriguez. Tyler’s face
is pulling to the side again. He is taking Tylenol for his legs, but they are not hurting like they were. It has been so good to be able to take him to the doctors here in Greenville. God has been with us. Tyler has a tooth coming in and he only has a couple teeth. This one is coming in on the side of his gums. They said all the roots were dead, so I don’t know why he’s getting this one. Its all swollen.
I pray that I will stay healthy and can be with Tyler as he finishes this long journey. He still has a long way to go and I am not doing to good. I have been feeling just awful. My blood pressure was 167 over 102. I have gained so much weight I can hardly walk and I am on a machine for sleep apnea (can’t breathe at night).
Please say a prayer for me and Tyler!
Besides this, we moved to Travelers Rest, close to Glasses Mountain in my father-in-law’s house when he passed away. I hate the place. It’s in the middle of the woods on top of a hill. You cannot even see a car pass by and I miss my boy being with me all the time. We do see deer and turkey. I just cannot get use to this. Guess I should be grateful we inherited the house.
Tyler is staying with his mom now in Greenville. I do see him just about every day and he’s with me when he can be. He has school with his home-bound teacher. I have spent the last nine years of my life trying to show him how much I love him. He’s my heart…my life.
WHAT A TROOPER 38 SURGERIES -WOW
Tyler is hoping to go to Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus, if we can get tickets. If anyone can help out it would make Tyler so happy!
I Miss you all signing his web page. We love you all so much!

Wanted to let you all no that Tyler is still doing well. Still no jaw pain. Gosh I am so glad that he’s seeing some doctors here and we don’t have to travel for a while. We were so blessed to find Dr Rodriguez. He has helped Tyler so much…There are so many people out there that have helped and showed how much they cared.
Each of you has been a blessing. Our journey isn’t over, but I know that God has special plans for Tyler and God will be with us all the way. Tyler such a sweet little boy. He sure deserves a break. You should just see him. He’s just like other little boys, playing laughing with his brother.
Dr. Rodriguez called today. We talked about Tyler’s jaw and agreed it would be best to just let him be a kid for a little while. We will wait another six months before doing the next jaw surgery instead of February.
As long as Tyler remains pain free and nothing goes wrong, we can leave him be for a little while. Dr. Rodriguez said that Tyler will have to have the surgery in Maryland to take some of the packing out from his jaw. We will have to talk to him in six months to make the arrangements and Tyler can follow up with his Greenville doctors until then.
Thank you for your prayers. God is good!
