Hi all. I read a web page this morning about a little girl named Ellie. It made me get on my nees and thank God for all the miracles he has given Tyler and this family.

I have learned a lot going through this journey with Tyler. I learned that the most inportant thing is to keep your faith and know that God is with you all the way, that God has a reason for what he does and that he answers prayers. I also know that there is always someone worse off than you are. No matter how hard things are, there are families that are having it much worse. I learned that there are people that care and want to help…that you take nothing for granted…that this could be your child, that you teach you children about God and you tell them each day you love them. No one knows what tomorrow will bring. I thank God each day for all my blessings, that he has kept me in good health so I can be with Tyler and Ashley on this long journey. It’s not over. Tyler still has a long way to go. I know God will be right with us.

Once I took Tyler to church, I think he was four or five, to the Easter play. I will never forget his words as he lay in my lap, because he was sick from chemo. He looked up and asked, “What is this place nanny?” I told him it was God’s house. He said, “Nanny, that’s the man you said stayed at the hospital with us and was holding your hand.

I just wanted to share this with you all. I learned to love and respect others and to share what you have. There are so many families that need support. If god decides that it’s time for Tyler in one of his surgeries, that God picks the most special roses in the garden for his kingdom and that you will meet with your babies again one day.

I feel so sorry for these kids and there families. Even though I know they’re going to a better place. Gosh how they are missed! And their families are hurting. I ask God to be with Ellie’s family to comfort them. I pray that there will be something soon that will kill the cancer monster.

Okay, now for Tyler. He is fine and eating, and he even played a game yesterday day on the Wii. The house let him bring it to the room even though they were not suppose to. He sees the doctor Thursday. He still has a lot of drainage, so I don’t know if they will remove the drain tube from his neck. He’s getting stronger each day, getting around with out a car is really hard to do, but again Gods is with us.

Tyler’s doctor is the most wonderful man in the world (oops, besides my George!) It shouldn’t be long defore we are sent home because of the medicaid. Tyler will be having scans in Greenville to make sure the monster hasn’t come back. I know it hasn’t, but we need to be safe. He has an appointment on the 26th (I think) to look at his legs and make sure all the screws are still in place. All this will be in Greenville.

I sure miss baby Nathan, Jayden and Ethan. Ashly and I are doing great. Here are some photos of Tyler on the plane.

One more thing. Please put my granddaughter Jessica in your prayers. She has MS at 21 years old. She’s taking a shot every other day to slow it down. The doctor says that this will get bad and will be really hard for her.
