Hello everyone,

Not much to update, Tyler is OK but still having pain. He needs your prayers.

He has to see some doctors here in Greenville next week. Then he has appointment coming up to check on the rods in his leg. He’s walking now but with a bad limp. He’s eating, but slowly because it hurts to chew. Tyler is still taking pain meds to keep the pain away.

He is going to have to go see the dentist. His few teeth are just hanging in his mouth and he has a few that are all bunched up in a pile that we are going to have to see about. What few teeth he has don’t have roots because of the chemo. Tyler goes back to Maryland to see Dr. Rodriquez on Sept 1.

We know they are planning two surgeries… one to take the rest of the metal jaw out because it is poking into his eardrum and through his ear, my poor kid. The other will be on both Ashley and Tyler, taking Ashley’s bone for Tyler’s jaw.

I am going to have a yard sale again for Tyler in two weeks, so if anyone in Greenville has donations please contact me. [ CAN BE PICKED UP]

No clothing unless in new condition please. It’s going to be on the side of highway 25. If you can help Tyler in this way, thank you.

I could also use some help with sale. I’m still planning. I have to do something to raise money for Tyler’s account. He’s going to need it.

I want to thank La Rue for her generous donation and thank all of you no matter how big or small, it counts and pays for Tyler’s and his medical needs. Tyler has suffered for years and it’s a long way from being over. He still loves the snail mail and getting all the get-well wishes

One more thing, if you all could put Tyler on your prayer list at church, this will be helpful because I know firsthand that God hears those prayers.

Jayden, Ethan and Nathan are doing well. I am OK, I’ll just trust in the Lord and that He will provide; God is good and has been with Tyler and our family.

If anyone has suggestions on a fundraiser or can do one for Tyler, we will be so grateful. One lady said she was going to send Tyler all her change each month, so things like that, maybe a penny drive or anything is so appreciated. It costs so much to get Tyler the help he needs.

Below is a copy of the most recent hospital bill. Medicaid only pays part and we have to pay what’s left. They want the balance before his next surgery, but with a $50,000 balance, I don’t think that will happen.

We love you all. Please go sign Tyler’s web page so we know you were there praying for him. And thank you Jessica so much for all you do on the web page. You’re an angel.
