We went to Maryland on the 1st and saw Dr. Rodriguez. He said he is going to have to set the surgery up as soon as he can get all the teams coordinated because the plate is fixing to come through Tyler’s skin. He said he could be just sitting in a chair and it’s could suddenly come through.

He said we would be there over a month when he has it because Tyler with have to take immunosuppressive meds for a while so he doesn’t reject his mother’s bone. He has many teams that have to be involved, so it will be the end of the month before he has it. He has to have the transplant team, Tyler’s oncologist, plastics and several other teams. Each team has 8 to 10 doctors.

They are going to try to put Tyler and Ashley in the same room after the operation. Ashley will be in the hospital around 4 or 5 days and Tyler will be in a while. They are going to take around 80 percent of her fibula to put in his jaw.  They said they take a little bit extra to make sure they have plenty to work with. They are going to use her bone because they said Charleston used all the bones he had big enough to use when they did it and it failed.

Please pray for all of us. Tyler and our family need those prayers. We still need donations to help. This is going to be a long time away from home. I will be going with Ashley and Tyler by myself, cost way too much to take every one, would still like to give Tyler a birthday party before he has surgery.

This life-threatening surgery could take my boy, please, please pray. This will be as bad as the first surgery Tyler had. So please tell your churches and all your friends about Tyler please give his web page to all your friends. We love you all so much and thank you. You all have helped save Tyler. He still loves the cards. Please hug your children and tell them you love them each day. YOU JUST DONT KNOW WHAT TOMORROW WILL BRING
