Sorry all that I was unable to get Darlene’s post up yesterday when she emailed it to me:

Hi everyone,

Tomorrow Tyler will fly to Maryland so Dr. Rodriguez can see his jaw and figure out what’s going on. Tyler’s chin is sinking in, his jaw is going sideways, and he has pain in his jaw at the temple. I will know more after he sees the doctor.
Tyler still has a hard time eating and chewing his food. He only has a few teeth on the other side, and they have no roots, so they just dangle. He has a spot where teeth tried to come in, but it is all bunched together behind the tooth that dangles in his mouth.

Tyler still has the rods in his leg that will have to be taken out and his legs still hurting him. Please say a prayer for Tyler and our family. Jayden, Tyler’s brother, turned five on the 27th. We had a cake and ice cream and the boys played in Tyler’s pool. Thanks to Steven who donated the pool to Tyler. It helps him so much and gets him out of the house to float on his tube. The kids all had a good time.
Thank you to everyone who has helped with this trip (you know who you are). Without your help, we cannot get Tyler where he needs to be. Your kindness, love and support mean so much.

I want to let Steven know that he has made things so much better. Because you cared, Tyler has had things we could never buy for him. You are one awesome man with a caring heart. There are so many out there that love and care for Tyler and help us all they can. Thank you and love to you all.

I will make another post soon as we know what Dr. Rodriguez thinks is going on with Tyler.

As I have said so many times, Tyler needs donations. I’m going to do another yard sale at the end of the month. Tyler has movie tickets donated for his fund raiser. There are 4 of them if anyone in Greenville wants to buy them.

They are for the Camelot cinemas and will sell for six dollars. It costs 10.00 to get into the movies, so a savings of four dollars. They are good till1/31/2011. All money is used for Tyler s travel and medical help.

You can donate on tylertucker.com

I wonder what the future holds for my boy. I love him so much and would cut my arm off to help Tyler. God is a part of my life and without my faith, I couldn’t handle all this. Tyler never complains; He’s just one strong awesome little 10-year-old!

Hi everyone,

Tyler is having a another step backwards, his jaw is turned sideways and he has a big overbite, it is hurting him when he eats.

We have contacted Dr. Rodriguez office and need to have Tyler in Maryland by the 30th so he can decide what to do, and if he still wants to go ahead with taking mom Ashley’s bone from her leg for Tyler’s jaw. We have to do something or Tyler will not be able to eat if the jaw gets worse, and it also hurts him. He also has pain in the leg that has the rods in it.

Please pray for TyTy. This is so hard to have to watch him go through all this. He has had some good days and was enjoying the pool Steven sent him. We will know more after the trip to Maryland on the 30th. We still need donations to help so we can stay with Tyler. We would deeply appreciate anyone that can help to donate here on tylertucker.com or at any SC bank using the name Darlene cox for Tyler Tucker in Greenville SC. or use PayPal,

or mail

All money donated is used to help Tyler. and so much appreciated. If you all had not help in pass years Tyler would not have gotten the care he needs so much. Theirs some wonderful caring people out there and i no they were god sent.

We have had help from people for eight years. That, along with your prayers, has kept Tyler alive. We have only had enough money each trip donated to do what we needed done, but with your help and god’s grace, we have made it this long. So from a little boy that loves you all so much and his grandmother, thank you. You know who you are.

Tyler is so skinny he looks sick. I wish he could gain some weight. Tyler never complains and Tyler loves the snail mail. I pray every day that Dr. Rodriguez will be able to fix Tyler’s jaw and I truly believe he will one day.

We took Tyler to Dr. Debrux, a wonderful doctor. He said that he could see where Tyler’s jaw is already having problems, and that’s why it is hurting. He’s calling Dr. Rodriguez. He said that that we need to watch Tyler’s his jaw and let him know of any changes.

Dr. Debrux told Ashley that when they do the next surgery, they would take 20 cm of her fibula and maybe more. That’s a lot! He said Ashley will have to stay in the hospital for a few days and that she will be in a wheel chair for a while.

Tyler will be there a few weeks. He said that Tyler’s surgery would be another long one. This will be at least seven to eight months away, but it will be here before we know it.

Dr. Debrux said that we need to prepare for this. Since Ashley and Tyler will both be in the hospital in Maryland I think it will be best if we try to rent an apartment for a month and just stay until we know they are both okay and just take Richie, the boys and George with us. That way, we can switch out and sit at the hospital while the other is sitting with our kids. I’ll have another yard sale and do what I can to raise money. We really have to keep up hopes that something will work out.

I sure don’t want Tyler to be unable to eat. That would be really bad for Tyler. Please keep praying for Tyler. His journey is still a long one. I remember during the last surgery, Ashley was crying. I asked what was wrong, and she said, “I am so afraid that he will one day go in surgery and not come out. It broke my heart.

If anyone wants to help Tyler, we have a PayPal account at .

Even a dollar will add up. You can also mail to Tyler Tucker c/o Darlene Cox

Or make a donation here at tylertucker.com

I hate to keep asking for help but we cannot do it alone. Tyler has to travel so far and needs so much. Many things Medicaid won’t pay. My goal is to raise $5,000 before the surgery. I have a time, unless TyTy gets worse. This is hard on the whole family.

I am going to ask Dr. Rodriguez what month he wants to do this surgery. Maybe we can get an apartment donated for a month, or someone can help pay the rent for a month. God bless every one that has helped us. You have kept Tyler with us. We love you all and thank you so much.

I know not everyone can afford to donate, but everyone can pray. That’s the most important thing. I know God hears those prayers, because Tyler is still here against all odds.
