I wanted to let everyone know that we are home and OK. We had a terrible car accident. It was so scary. Tyler was screaming help me and his chest was hurting from where the seat belt held him back. Richie freaked out trying to reach Tyler and some bobbed wire got him and cut him everywhere, almost tearing his pants off. But he still got Tyler out.

The other two boys are more upset than hurt, but do have some bruising from seat belts. My truck is totaled, but that’s OK. I just thank god over and over that they are all OK. Tyler wanted to take his iPad that Steven had gotten him and his computer is history. He has cried all night that it’s his life, that’s all he has to or can do. I will post pictures later of truck. They are lucky to be here. I don’t understand why all this happens to my family!

God, have I done something? Are you showing Ashley and Richie what can happen? I just don’t understand.  I have tried to live my life helping my family and others when I can.  It cost us almost $700 to go get them, renting a van, gas and food. Now our money is spent and I don’t know how Tyler will get back to Maryland. They are rescheduling his surgery as soon as he a little better.

Ashley, Richie, Tyler, Ethan and Jayden are hurt but nothing critical. I got up this morning thanking god that they are going to be OK. Ashley and Tyler were told to go back to the ER last night as soon as they got home.

I want to thank you for all the prayers. As I have said so many times, you are Tyler’s and my angels. We love you all.

Please keep praying. My surgery is coming up on Feb. 14 and will be a rough one, removing the extra skin from losing so much weight. Thank goodness my Medicare is paying because it causes me big sores.

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas. Because of you angels, Tyler had a great Christmas.

But right now, Tyler needs your prayers. He’s had a lot of jaw pain and leg pain. Tyler was laying on my couch crying last night because his jaw was hurting, so please keep him in your prayers. This is so much pain for Tyler to have to go through. And now, Tyler and everyone in the house has the flu.

Tyler also has an infection in his eye, running all the way down into his jaw on the surgery site. He hugged me at told me he never felt so bad. He’s such a trooper. I love this boy with all my heart and will never understand why he suffers so much, but I know god has a plan.

Just think of all that the doctors have learned from this experience and all the other children they will be able to help because of it. You all have made this possible.

It will soon be time to take Tyler to the doctor on the 7th for a complete checkup before he has his surgery. He goes back to Maryland on January 22 and has the surgery on the 24th. Please pray for Tyler and ask god to guide the doctors his 60th surgery. It will be another jaw replacement, this time using hip bone. Tyler will have a pain pump put in his hip after the surgery. He will be in Maryland three weeks or more. We don’t know exactly how long he will be in the hospital, but they told us 10 ten days in the hospital and a week or more at Ronald McDonald House.

All of Tyler’s suffering started from cancer as a 2-year-old. He’s now 13 and still suffering. It is stressful both mentally and financially. We need donations for the 600-mile trip and the stay in Maryland. We will be driving. Tyler can’t go by commercial flight and we can’t get a private flight. If you can please donate to help this sweet child and his family, we would be very grateful. If any of you can help with gift cards for gas or food while the family is in Maryland, it would be especially helpful. You can send those by mail.

More than anything though, we need your prayers.

I pray that your new year will bring each of you a blessing. I have been blessed so many times to still have Tyler with me. If something should ever happen to Tyler, I couldn’t stand it. I just pray he’s going to be okay.

Please pray for him. God hears your prayers. He’s having a lot of pain in both legs and his jaw. He’s also looking very weak. He’s eating, but only weighs about 75 pounds at 13 years old. He should weigh around 113. Tyler’s Christmas was really good.

Thanks to all Tyler’s angels for all the love and support. We’re so blessed to have angels that love Tyler and his family. God placed you in Tyler’s life. I thank each one of you for being with Tyler and me in your prayers and loving us through the last 10 years. Thank god for placing you in Tyler’s life. May god bless each of you?

I wanted to let you know that my son Allen is in the hospital. He’s having trouble breathing, and they found a spot on his lung. Please pray he’s going to be okay. He went in on Christmas Eve.

I will have my surgery February 13. It will be a rough one, removing excess skin from when I lost 119 pounds. The skin is creating sores, so it has to be removed. My doctor says Medicare will approved the surgery. So, please put a prayer in for me as well.
