Tyler with his father.

Tyler is now in remission. This doesn’t mean he is cured or better in any way. Sadly, The cancer has done so much damage to Tyler’s little body.

He has been through 55 surgeries, facing #56. We will have to take him to MUSC for scans and Maryland for treatments and surgeries. He will spend his entire life going through this. He will never be 100% better, as the doctors told us. He has had a lung removed, and 1/2 of his leg bone taken out to replace his jaw (from both legs). This now causes Tyler to hurt when he walks. Tyler had to be home bound from school. He has a wonderful teacher that comes out. He loves Mrs. Bright so much.

Once again, his jaw replacement with the leg bone isn’t working , nor is anything else that the doctors have tried, so they have to fix that again. Not only this, but Tyler tends to get sick often and can only eat soft foods. His face stays swollen on one side and pulls sideways, making his whole face hurt.  He cannot do things like normal kids because of these things. We also have been told he maybe never able to have babies when he is older.

The cancer he had isn’t like common cancers. The doctors told us Tyler wasn’t suppose to live. We are very lucky to have him. I know he is going to make it!!!!!!  He’s been fighting nine years now.

The chance of Tyler’s cancer coming back is very high, but we think he will be fine because we are trying so hard to get support for him, and having the whole world caring about him. We have hope, and Tyler is a warrior!

Be sure to leave a note in my Guest book (both TYLERTUCKER.COM and Caring Bridge) Poor Tyler’s been through a lot and could sure use some cheery mail to remind him that he’s special and loved by God and all the angels that God has placed in his life. Share a little joy with Tyler by sending him some “happy mail.” he loves cards, and Christmas is here in four short weeks. Reading Christmas cards would be great!

We love you all!
