Dr. Rodriguez said that the bacterial virus is gone and pulled Tyler’s pick line out. He said that there is nothing else he can do until Tyler catches the Epstein Barr virus. It is a very common virus that almost everyone has. He just hasn’t caught it yet. He has to have it before the surgery, because his dad is positive for this virus. If they did the surgery and he didn’t have it but his dad did, it could make him very sick. Also, if he has it, there is a lower chance of catching a type of cancer that the anti-rejection meds can cause.
The doctors have tried everything. He has had blood transfusions but Tyler still hasn’t caught the virus. The doctor told Ashley to go ahead and get the surgery for his foot slipping off the big bone here. He’ll need screws again, so she will get that set up soon. Dr. Rodriguez said to let that heal a little, give Tyler a break and come back in August to test for the Epstein virus. The doctor here can only check Tyler for infections, but he can only look at him. Dr. Rodriguez must treat Tyler if anything goes wrong. Pray that Tyler will have the virus by then. He also said that if Tyler’s dad loses his Medicaid, he couldn’t do the surgery because the hospital won’t let him. That means dad still cannot go to work.
Tyler is still a sick little boy, so please keep praying. Tyler will have many surgeries to come. Dr. Rodriguez said that he will never give up on Tyler, and that he will fix his jaw one day. He’s a wonderful doctor. This was a short trip. We were supposed to go every month, but Dr. Rodriguez wants Tyler to get the leg fixed.
I want to thank God for placing all Tyler’s angels in his life. Thank you all for your continued love and support. You all have been with us for nine years.
Thank you no matter what you have done to help Tyler and our family. God has heard your prayers and believe me, I know prayer is the most important. You all have sent cards, which Tyler loves, money to help with trips and medical need, gas cards, food cards. You have been there for Tyler and our family.
Miss Pat’s church took up a collection and gave us money to help with all Tyler’s medical needs and travel. She works at Tyler’s school. His school has been wonderful and has helped us so much the last nine years. They just did a benefit to help us get Tyler the things he needs for all the trips he has to make to get treatment Thank you Mr. Ron B and Mr. Steven F, for always helping when I didn’t know what we would do. I always knew you two and Mrs. Flash would be here to help us. Thank Rally Foundation for paying March’s house payment for Tyler’s family and Happy Days for paying April’s house payment. This helped so much.
Now to name a few that have helped through the years: Mr. Shane Frankel, Basket Sue, Pat Patiskley, Johnson & Johnson, Tooth Dr. Defleacircus, Roxie Beagle, Mrs. Lure, TWIN 99, Lee Ann Shelton, Lil Rebel for the cruise in s and for the one coming up June 16. Any one that can come out and visit with Tyler and our family, Jessica Bosari for all the hard work she does to keep Tylertucker.com on the web. Thanks Jessica so much.
I know I have left out many that have helped in the last nine years. Just know that we love and are so grateful for everything, no matter what it was.
I THANK EACH OF YOU SO MUCH. TYLER WOULDN’T BE HERE IF YOU ALL HAD NOT LOVED AND CARED ABOUT HIM.
Tyler’s still a very sick little boy, so keep praying. Once again thank you. All the money that is left goes into Tyler’s account for the next trip to Maryland or for his medical needs. It takes a lot of gas around here seeing the doctors.
ONE MORE THING… I WANT TO TRY GIVING JAYDEN, TYLER’S FIVE-YEAR-OLD BROTHER, A BIRTHDAY PARTY. EVERY YEAR ON HIS BIRTHDAY, TYLER HAS BEEN IN THE HOSPITAL, SO HE HAS NEVER HAD A PARTY, HE WANTS TO GO TO GETTI TOWN, SO I HOPE WE CAN GET THIS DONE THIS YEAR.
LOVE YOU ALL AND I KNOW GOD WILL SEND YOU MANY BLESSINGS
