Tyler is in Maryland seeing Dr. Rodrigues. I talked to the doctor and he said that Tyler’s new jaw has to come out. It has already started poking through the skin and causing lots of pain. Tyler will be home today and returns to Maryland on the 26th of February for another follow up.

Doctors are getting ready to replace his jaw with yet another plastic jaw. He still cannot get the blood to change so that it will work with Dad’s bone. If he can’t fix the blood problem, there’s a good chance that the transplant drugs would cause a cancer remission. So the transplant is on hold for now. Gees, how many more surgeries can Tyler take? Dr. Rodriguez said that he is really worried about Tyler. I don’t think surgery will be on the 26th, but soon.

Please pray for our family. I am sitting at the hospital with my daughter Tammy. She had a wreck and broke her neck, and has a fracture in her backbone. I sat in ICU eight days and nights with her. Tammy is doing a little better, but has a long way to go. She will be sent to another hospital for therapy. Please say a prayer for her. It’s so hard on me now with Tammy and Tyler both having so much medical treatment. Tammy will never be able to drive again.

Please, please pray for Tyler and Tammy. Hug your kids let them know you love them. You don’t know what tomorrow may bring.

I’m so sorry I have been away. I was ill for a few days. I was very sad to log back on and see that Tyler is not doing well. I have outlined the updates that have come through in my absence. ~Jess

Darlene wrote several days ago that, “Tyler will be leaving on Feb 26 for Maryland to see Dr. Rodriguez. His jaw has been hurting a lot, so the doctor needs to make sure it’s not infected. Although the doctor says it’s probably okay, Tyler’s face is shallow and looks like it has an egg sitting on it, and an open wound that has not closed up completely.” Tyler was still having pain in his legs as well, but the pain medication was helping.

 

Darlene’s daughter Tammy is still in ICU after her terrible car accident. She may not make it, having a broken neck and back. She has not woken up since surgery, Darlene has spent every free moment of seven days prayer for her daughter to wake up. If you wish to send her encouragement, she is at Greenville Hospital, 4th floor ICU, room f4006, Greenville, SC. Through this all, Darlene maintains her steadfast faith. I marvel at her strength!

Below is her most recent update:

Tyler’s Dad Richie is still not too happy about donating his bone. He’s afraid, but will do it for his son. Dr. Rodriguez said that the plastic temporary fix must come out of Tyler’s jaw. I still love and trust Dr. Rodriguez and his team so much. He’s a wonderful doctor and will never give up on Tyler. The next surgery is going to be a scary one, and Tyler’s face doesn’t look the same anymore. He still has the two big places where he lost his hair…this worries him.

Just imagine if this was your child. I will never give up on getting Tyler help, even if I have to stand holding out a jar for donations. God must have some great plans for this child. Even if you cannot donate, you can keep praying for Tyler. He still loves the mail that is sent to him.

Jayden is still sick and throwing up. I wish they would find out what’s wrong with him. Ethan is OK and Nathan is doing good. Nathan loves school. Tyler’s teacher still comes to the house, and said Tyler is doing well in his schoolwork. Tyler loves Mrs. Bright who is also Nathans’s K4 teacher. Tyler’s sitting around playing the games he got for Christmas. God has been so good to us and sends his angels to help Tyler and our family. May God bless each and every one of you.

The Little Rebel restaurant has told us that they will do a cruise-in for Tyler in April. Mrs. Leeann Shelton will be arranging it. She’s so wSweet and loves Tyler so much. If any churches in Greenville or anywhere would do a benefit for Tyler of some kind, that would be so great. Just get in touch with us. (" target="_blank">)

God always provides a way to get Tyler to his treatments, all the way to Maryland, 600 miles. It costs a lot but Medicaid will not cover his medication in Maryland unless he’s in the hospital. If you can donate, that would be great, or mail gift card for food. If you want to donate. Even the smallest amount counts up and you can do that here using the “Donate” link at www.tylertucker.com, or with payal to " target="_blank">.

You all are the reason that Tyler gets the medical attention he needs. He couldn’t travel without your assistance and donations. Our family and Tyler really appreciate it! Even if you can only give a few dollars, please don’t think that won’t help because it does.

Kiss your children and tell them you love them. You don’t know what tomorrow may bring. I really couldn’t cope with this without God in my life. The school picture was taken back in August. Tyler doesn’t look that way now, but he’s still beautiful in my eyes! God hears your prayers so please keep praying for Tyler.

Thank all of you. We love you all!
