Tyler is doing great, and all looks great. Dr. Rodriguez, we love you! There are not enough words to thank you for saving our Tyler.

Tyler is a trooper came through surgery really well. He is on pain meds, but he’s doing good. They cut his neck and he has a drain tube.

Tyler woke up with a good bit of blood at his neck incision this morning and was feeling sore, but that is to be expected. We will be at the Ronald Mc Donald house. All the beds at hospital are full, so they felt it would be safe to take Tyler to the Dr. from here. Ronald McDonald House has given permission for Tyler to eat in his room since he can not walk around just yet.

As soon as Tyler is able he will be sent back to Greenville. SC medicaid will not pay what the hospital and doctor get in Maryland, so he cannot stay. There will be a doctor waiting for him in Greenville. Darn medicaid in SC! I guess I’d better just be glad and thanking God we have it. Dr. Rodriguez has also contacted a cancer hospital to get them to do scans for Tyler in Greenville. Even though he’s in remission, there’s a 60 percent chance that it could come back.

Tyler’s so strong and such a trooper. He has fought hard and he has won. The cancer monster is taking so many children. Please pray for all these kids as you remember Tyler in your prayers.
