Hello everyone,

More news on Tyler, first Dr. Rodriguez called 10-4-11 he said that he has not gotten the records from MUSC that he needs on Tyler. Ashley signed for them on the 16th of last month. She has called them, and they are supposed to be sending them.

Dr. Rodriguez said that the spot they see in Tyler is not coming from the metal in his jaw. He said he doesn’t know what it is, but Tyler has to be checked out. It could be tonsils or something else. We are trying to contact Dr. Kebecka to get this done, but she hasn’t called us back yet. We are praying it’s not cancer. We will be making a trip soon to MUSC to find out.

Next, he said that we have to come to Maryland. As soon as he can set it up, we have to meet with doctors for two days at University of Maryland about Ashley and Tyler’s surgery. So now, we will go to Maryland for this and then go back for the surgery on the 28th.

At that time, we will be staying up to eight weeks. We’re leaving Greenville right after Thanksgiving and won’t be home for Christmas.

Tyler’s birthday was wonderful and we thank everyone that made it possible. It was so good to see him smile. Tyler loved all the birthday cards and gifts he received from everyone. His teachers and some of his classmates were at his party too. Thank you all for making Tyler so happy, and most of all, thank you Steven for paying for Tyler’s party, cake, and all the trimmings.

The medical bill is also being paid, so that will be taken care of. Thank you and God bless you. Now Tyler will be able to have his surgery.

There are many angels watching out for Tyler. Tyler’s grandma Gail will be taking five days off so she can go to Maryland and sit with Ashley and Tyler. What a big help this will be! she loves those boys with all her heart.


I don’t know how many of you read the Greenville news, but things don’t look too good. Dr. Rodriguez said this was the worst case he had ever had. But he also said that Tyler has an awesome, caring and supporting family. I know that God will be with Tyler and our family. I will always keep my faith and know that God is with me.

Now we’re also worried about Tyler’s little brother Jayden. We have been sitting at the doctor’s office with him because he has been throwing up and sleeping an hour or more at school. He says he feels bad. The doctors are running all kind of tests on him, saying that these could be signs of a brain tumor and that he has to be checked out. He said we wouldn’t hear back on the tests for a week or so. Please pray that he is OK.

Papa George is trying to get the van all fixed up for the trip to Charleston, and if Tyler and Ashley need him, he will drive to Maryland.

Once again, I say to you, please hug your kids. Tell them each day that you love them. No one knows what tomorrow will bring. What if this was your child?

God bless each of you. We love you all so much!
