Hi everyone,

Tyler is still not well from his surgery. Doctor says it is going to take a while. Tyler woke up with a temperature yesterday of 102 . He felt bad all day. He’s up and playing again today, though.

His little mouth is already turning side ways again. His mom says a lot of it is because he has no teeth. They can not give him implants because of the metal and the dentist said Tyler cannot hold false teeth in. So he has to deal with it and eat soft foods. Yesterday he was gumming a ear of corn though.

I was wondering if any of you had any X-box 360 games your not playing any more? Tyler would love to have them. He has beat all his and is bored to death. We cannot afford to go buy these. Ssomething went wrong with his computer so he can’t use that right now till we can get it fixed again.

Tyler will be having surgery on his legs around the end of September or August. No date yet, they just say he has to have it done soon. Tyler still weights only fifty-nine pounds, but he is eating really well. I wish he could gain some weight! The doctor said that would help his legs. I sure hope his legs don’t start hurting again when the weather gets. cold.

We wanted to go to Charleston for Courageous Kids reunion but the doctors don’t think that is a good idea with the water slides and air boats that will be there. Tyler could fall and mess up his jaw after all he’s been through. I will miss seeing everyone, but must do what is best for my TyTy.

Please keep praying for Tyler. He has so much more to go through and I know that my faith has to stay strong. It was very hard to see him cut almost from ear to ear, but we knew that it had to be done and will have to be done over and over again. He’s such a trooper.

My sincere thanks to each of you. There are too many to thank individually, but you know who you are. Time and again, we have seen that God has sent so many angels to help us. We are so grateful- we love you.  God bless you all.

Nathan is doing better but will have a scar from his burn. I will never let him have another sparkler. He will just have to use the little poppers you throw on the ground.
