Hello,

Well, things here are still good. Tyler’s not well, but doing great for all he’s been through. The doctor says his jaw is healing great. He will see him again in August, I think it was the 26th. He is also calling Dr. Rodriguez and they are setting up scans in Greenville at the children’s cancer center for Tyler. He said that because there is a chance the cancer can come back, Tyler needs to be scanned. Tyler is a strong boy. Thank you for all the wonderful get well cards and putting a smile on Tyler’s face.


Tyler went to the doctor about his legs. They said that they were okay. The screws are coming through the skin because Tyler is so skinny. He said Tyler really needs to put on some weight, but that’s easier said than done. He said that he will have to operate to take the screws out soon. The date for that is not set yet. As soon as we no more info, I will post. Tyler will most likely have to wear braces again on his legs.

I thank god for every day we have with Tyler and all our kids. Little Ellie passed away. Her link was on the last post. Her funeral was today. Her family is suffering and missing her so much. Please visit Ellie’s guestbook and support her family during this difficult time.

God bless each of you
We love you all

Hi,

This looks bad, but he is OK. Thank you Jesus. Thank you children flight of hope for our safe and wonderful flight to and back home from Maryland. Made it so much better for Tyler. It’s a shame the way Medicaid works in SC, when a kid like Tyler needs it so much. That was the reason Tyler couldn’t stay in the hospital because Medicaid won’t pay what they get payed in Maryland. So as soon as he was able he is sent back to Greenville. We will have a hard time next week. Tyler will have to see doctors here and they will take over his care. Also he will have to go to the leg doctor. His foot is sideways again, meaning the pin most likely has come loose.

Thank you so much for all the cards and everything that has been done to help Tyler. Please don’t stop those prayers. God is hearing all of them. We now have another surgery down, but more to come. God bless each of you.

Hi all. I read a web page this morning about a little girl named Ellie. It made me get on my nees and thank God for all the miracles he has given Tyler and this family.

I have learned a lot going through this journey with Tyler. I learned that the most inportant thing is to keep your faith and know that God is with you all the way, that God has a reason for what he does and that he answers prayers. I also know that there is always someone worse off than you are. No matter how hard things are, there are families that are having it much worse. I learned that there are people that care and want to help…that you take nothing for granted…that this could be your child, that you teach you children about God and you tell them each day you love them. No one knows what tomorrow will bring. I thank God each day for all my blessings, that he has kept me in good health so I can be with Tyler and Ashley on this long journey. It’s not over. Tyler still has a long way to go. I know God will be right with us.

Once I took Tyler to church, I think he was four or five, to the Easter play. I will never forget his words as he lay in my lap, because he was sick from chemo. He looked up and asked, “What is this place nanny?” I told him it was God’s house. He said, “Nanny, that’s the man you said stayed at the hospital with us and was holding your hand.

I just wanted to share this with you all. I learned to love and respect others and to share what you have. There are so many families that need support. If god decides that it’s time for Tyler in one of his surgeries, that God picks the most special roses in the garden for his kingdom and that you will meet with your babies again one day.

I feel so sorry for these kids and there families. Even though I know they’re going to a better place. Gosh how they are missed! And their families are hurting. I ask God to be with Ellie’s family to comfort them. I pray that there will be something soon that will kill the cancer monster.

Okay, now for Tyler. He is fine and eating, and he even played a game yesterday day on the Wii. The house let him bring it to the room even though they were not suppose to. He sees the doctor Thursday. He still has a lot of drainage, so I don’t know if they will remove the drain tube from his neck. He’s getting stronger each day, getting around with out a car is really hard to do, but again Gods is with us.

Tyler’s doctor is the most wonderful man in the world (oops, besides my George!) It shouldn’t be long defore we are sent home because of the medicaid. Tyler will be having scans in Greenville to make sure the monster hasn’t come back. I know it hasn’t, but we need to be safe. He has an appointment on the 26th (I think) to look at his legs and make sure all the screws are still in place. All this will be in Greenville.

I sure miss baby Nathan, Jayden and Ethan. Ashly and I are doing great. Here are some photos of Tyler on the plane.

One more thing. Please put my granddaughter Jessica in your prayers. She has MS at 21 years old. She’s taking a shot every other day to slow it down. The doctor says that this will get bad and will be really hard for her.

Tyler is doing great, and all looks great. Dr. Rodriguez, we love you! There are not enough words to thank you for saving our Tyler.

Tyler is a trooper came through surgery really well. He is on pain meds, but he’s doing good. They cut his neck and he has a drain tube.

Tyler woke up with a good bit of blood at his neck incision this morning and was feeling sore, but that is to be expected. We will be at the Ronald Mc Donald house. All the beds at hospital are full, so they felt it would be safe to take Tyler to the Dr. from here. Ronald McDonald House has given permission for Tyler to eat in his room since he can not walk around just yet.

As soon as Tyler is able he will be sent back to Greenville. SC medicaid will not pay what the hospital and doctor get in Maryland, so he cannot stay. There will be a doctor waiting for him in Greenville. Darn medicaid in SC! I guess I’d better just be glad and thanking God we have it. Dr. Rodriguez has also contacted a cancer hospital to get them to do scans for Tyler in Greenville. Even though he’s in remission, there’s a 60 percent chance that it could come back.

Tyler’s so strong and such a trooper. He has fought hard and he has won. The cancer monster is taking so many children. Please pray for all these kids as you remember Tyler in your prayers.

GOD BLESS WE LOVE YOU ALL
