Hello everyone,

Tyler saw the doctor yesterday about his jaw. They said that the skin is pulling too tight on his scar and they want Ashley to massage it. They will have to watch this closely because it can cause a lot of pain. But it hasn’t yet.

Tyler gets scans in September to make sure the monster isn’t back in his body. [I HATE CANCER!!!] He will all so have leg surgery around the end of September on both legs to remove his screws. I just pray he will be able to walk.

We are hoping to send him to school so he can be around other kids besides his brothers…and he will learn so much more. Tyler will be in third grade. I got him a few new pairs of pants and was able to find him some shirts at Wal-Mart marked down to five dollars.

Tyler is playing his Xbox again thanks to Mr. Steven and his son. They sent Tyler a box of games. We opened the box and Tyler went, “Wow just look at this!” He said, “Nanny, Steven really cares about me. He’s really a nice man.” Thank you Steven. You have always been here for Tyler. We thank God that he sent you to Tyler and our family!

Thanks everyone who has helped Tyler fight his cancer. You all are the reason he’s here. God heard your prayers. But please let’s pray Tyler stays in remission.

The Little Rebel is going to have another cruise-in for Tyler on September 18 to help us with gas and the other things Tyler needs. We have a $2,000 hospital bill in Maryland that has to be paid before Tyler can go back up there for his next surgery. Medicaid doesn’t pay everything. But thank God, it paid the most of it. Dr. Rodriguez donated his services for Tyler. He’s just amazing and such a great doctor. God has sent us so many angels!

Please say a prayer for all the cancer kids. Unless you have a child with cancer, you don’t know what these families go through each day. Even when the child’s in remission, there is just so much worry. Will it come back? Will God take our child to heaven? And like Tyler, his little body is all cut up with scars everywhere. You have to go watch him suffer with shots, being cut open, not knowing if he will pull through the next surgery. Can you imagine this little nine-year-old having 41 surgeries?

God is still with us and I have my faith. There are even kids that go through more than Tyler has. Kiss your kids each day and tell them you love them. I do. You don’t know what tomorrow will bring.

God bless. We love you all.

Hi everyone,

Tyler is still not well from his surgery. Doctor says it is going to take a while. Tyler woke up with a temperature yesterday of 102 . He felt bad all day. He’s up and playing again today, though.

His little mouth is already turning side ways again. His mom says a lot of it is because he has no teeth. They can not give him implants because of the metal and the dentist said Tyler cannot hold false teeth in. So he has to deal with it and eat soft foods. Yesterday he was gumming a ear of corn though.

I was wondering if any of you had any X-box 360 games your not playing any more? Tyler would love to have them. He has beat all his and is bored to death. We cannot afford to go buy these. Ssomething went wrong with his computer so he can’t use that right now till we can get it fixed again.

Tyler will be having surgery on his legs around the end of September or August. No date yet, they just say he has to have it done soon. Tyler still weights only fifty-nine pounds, but he is eating really well. I wish he could gain some weight! The doctor said that would help his legs. I sure hope his legs don’t start hurting again when the weather gets. cold.

We wanted to go to Charleston for Courageous Kids reunion but the doctors don’t think that is a good idea with the water slides and air boats that will be there. Tyler could fall and mess up his jaw after all he’s been through. I will miss seeing everyone, but must do what is best for my TyTy.

Please keep praying for Tyler. He has so much more to go through and I know that my faith has to stay strong. It was very hard to see him cut almost from ear to ear, but we knew that it had to be done and will have to be done over and over again. He’s such a trooper.

My sincere thanks to each of you. There are too many to thank individually, but you know who you are. Time and again, we have seen that God has sent so many angels to help us. We are so grateful- we love you.  God bless you all.

Nathan is doing better but will have a scar from his burn. I will never let him have another sparkler. He will just have to use the little poppers you throw on the ground.

Tyler’s neck hasn’t healed all the way but it is making progress. He has a pretty good cut. I guess it will just take time to heal. He’s still doing well. He doesn’t like all the heat because it makes his neck burn when he sweats. He’s seeing his doctor but we haven’t heard about scans yet. Looking to hear soon I hope. Guess they are giving him time to get over his operation first. Tyler will have to have surgery on his legs to remove the screws. He’ll see the doctor in August for that and they will set up everything. Guess there seems to be no end to this child’s suffering. He’s strong and God is with us all the way.

I want to thank each of you that have helped us so Tyler can be taken care of. There have been so many long trips out of state, even seeing the doctors here  24 miles to Greenville and 24 back. That’s 44 four miles a trip, sometimes three days a week. Then you have to feed the kids if they sit at the doctors all day. Gas has been so high. Please believe me when I say we really appreciate all that has been done. You all have been wonderful. Tyler has been so lucky to know you all care so much.

He’s still got so much more to go through, so please keep him in your prayers .

I really think that Tyler may need emotional therapy because of all hes been through.

We had a wonderful 4th. Grilling out with the boys and Ashley and Richie. We only got sparklers for the kids thinking they wouldn’t get hurt with them, but we were wrong. My hubby George was helping Nathan and Nathan touched his shorts with the end of the sparkler and the darn shorts caught fire! Burned  Nathans leg pretty bad and scared the dickens out of me. I was screaming my poor baby was on fire. He’s okay now , but he will have a scar. That shows how things can happen so fast . You never know what tomorrow will bring so please let your kids know each day that you love them.

If you all are visiting Tyler’s page, please sign it. It means so much to him to know you were reading his page.
God bless each of you and we love you all.
