Sorry all that I was unable to get Darlene’s post up yesterday when she emailed it to me:

Hi everyone,

Tomorrow Tyler will fly to Maryland so Dr. Rodriguez can see his jaw and figure out what’s going on. Tyler’s chin is sinking in, his jaw is going sideways, and he has pain in his jaw at the temple. I will know more after he sees the doctor.
Tyler still has a hard time eating and chewing his food. He only has a few teeth on the other side, and they have no roots, so they just dangle. He has a spot where teeth tried to come in, but it is all bunched together behind the tooth that dangles in his mouth.

Tyler still has the rods in his leg that will have to be taken out and his legs still hurting him. Please say a prayer for Tyler and our family. Jayden, Tyler’s brother, turned five on the 27th. We had a cake and ice cream and the boys played in Tyler’s pool. Thanks to Steven who donated the pool to Tyler. It helps him so much and gets him out of the house to float on his tube. The kids all had a good time.
Thank you to everyone who has helped with this trip (you know who you are). Without your help, we cannot get Tyler where he needs to be. Your kindness, love and support mean so much.

I want to let Steven know that he has made things so much better. Because you cared, Tyler has had things we could never buy for him. You are one awesome man with a caring heart. There are so many out there that love and care for Tyler and help us all they can. Thank you and love to you all.

I will make another post soon as we know what Dr. Rodriguez thinks is going on with Tyler.

As I have said so many times, Tyler needs donations. I’m going to do another yard sale at the end of the month. Tyler has movie tickets donated for his fund raiser. There are 4 of them if anyone in Greenville wants to buy them.

They are for the Camelot cinemas and will sell for six dollars. It costs 10.00 to get into the movies, so a savings of four dollars. They are good till1/31/2011. All money is used for Tyler s travel and medical help.

You can donate on
Or PayPal at or mail even a dollar will help

I wonder what the future holds for my boy. I love him so much and would cut my arm off to help Tyler. God is a part of my life and without my faith, I couldn’t handle all this. Tyler never complains; He’s just one strong awesome little 10-year-old!
