We’re back to Maryland on the 9th for about four days. Tyler has to go each month until they figure out what to do. He has nothing in one side and the jaw and it is pulling to one side fast. He can barely eat or talk. He’s on IV meds for the infection. A nurse will come out tomorrow and more medication will be delivered on Tuesday. There is some talk that Tyler may need a feeding tube later.
Please keep praying for Tyler and our family. Once again, thank you to all Tyler’s Angels out there… you know who you are. We are grateful that God placed you in our lives.
If anyone wants to help, you can donate at my pay pal: .

Hi everyone… just wanted to update you on Tyler.
The nurse came out today to get Tyler’s blood and make sure he’s okay. He’s still on IVs. They sent us six great big boxes of medication so he has the medicine he needs till we go home. Thank God for that. I am so disgusted with Medicaid. Tyler has two bacterial infections. He will see Dr. Rodriguez on Thursday, hoping to get the stitches taken out of his neck. They are from ear to ear.
Tyler is eating soft stuff and doing well with that. He has a long way to go. I will never give up until Tyler is all well.
Ashley is worn out. She has to hook Tyler up like nine times a day and all through the night. I want to thank all of Tyler’s angels out there. You all have been so wonderful and we thank God each day that you all love Tyler, Your love, prayers and support have meant so much to us and have kept Tyler with us. Thank each of you. We love you all. Thank you all so much. We will be coming back to Maryland each month for a while. The hard part is that we can’t get a flight, so we will have to drive. It will work out. God hears our prayers and hasn’t forsaken us yet. Love, love, love you all! Keep praying for our boy.

Thank god for Tyler’s angels! Good morning we have Tyler at the RMD house. Ashley’s been up all night giving Tyler the meds he needs. The nurse came out and we were sent big boxes of medication and IV pole Meds which need refrigerated, and ours isn’t working so we had to get another one. Medication was donated our Medicaid wouldn’t pay for them in Maryland so we are thanking god that the co in Greenville donated it to Tyler for the time we are in Maryland. Tyler doing ok hoping the medication will work and stop the bacteria from growing. Please keep praying all this and Tyler’s not complained one time. We are still going to be here a while, and if Tyler’s fever goes to 101 he has to be put back in the hospital.

Just letting you all know that Tyler is doing OK. He’s still in hospital but getting ready to be sent to Ronald McDonald house for a week or more. They cannot find a company that will take his Medicaid for his pole and pump and all the medication he needs for it. He will have this for two months or more, whenever we do get to go back home. Tyler will have to come back to Maryland soon for more surgery, and he will have to continue to for the rest of his life. He will need to go in to hospital early so they can find blood that will work from blood bank. He will also have go to Maryland every month for a while (currently).

The doctors have looked at Tyler’s jaw . It has to be taken completely out and they don’t know if it can be put back in. They said that that they may have to leave Tyler without a jaw and that they may have to wire his mouth shut.
They said they don’t know what else to do. They will try to use the jaw over, but they don’t think that they can. I have been crying so hard. I asked them to please use something from me, but they said they can’t. The doctors said that the jaw has had so many surgeries that they might have to just leave Tyler without a jaw.
Please, please pray for Tyler. This is so hard. I just cannot stop crying. I am so upset. They have said they expect Tyler to be in hospital a week and Ronald McDonald House a week . We are going to send Papa and Nathan home this weekend and pray we can get a flight back home later.
Tyler has two bacterial infections growing…bad ones. One of them can cause a flesh-eating virus. A line will be put in soon so he can get strong medication. He’s doing well dealing with all this and was sitting up with his iPad last night.
Once again, pray, pray, pray. Please.
Maybe things will change. Miracles do happen.
Oh my goodness, how fast things can happen! Tyler’s jaw has come open and we have to get him back to Maryland today. The doctor called and said that Tyler’s jaw that they just put in is exposed so we have to go to Maryland. Tyler will be readmitted for surgery on Friday. They think we’ll be in Maryland about two weeks.
I pray there is someone to help. Gosh, I don’t know what we are going to do. I need help. We cannot get a flight and we have little gas and food money. If anyone can help, please do.
Dear God, what next?
