Hello everyone, I have a new update on Tyler.

There’s some good news and bad news. First let me say that we are so grateful to everyone that loves Tyler and cares what happens in his life. He’s one strong little boy.

Tyler saw Dr. Rodriguez and he says Tyler’s jaw looks good. Even a muscle in his face has started giving a little movement. His face is still lined up and he is still able to eat. He is having some pain because of the hospital cement, pulling the other side of his face and making it hurt. And this rain is not helping. His medication is helping with the pain.

Ashley told Dr. Rodriguez that she doesn’t want Tyler to have the jaw replacement as long as he’s doing okay; that Tyler and his family need a break. Dr. Rodriguez said that we will try to wait. He said to bring Tyler on November 7th and he will try to wait until January 1st to do the surgery. He said that if the hospital cement starts to deteriorate, we will have to bring him sooner. Otherwise it will hurt and his face will go back to the way it was. He may need the surgery sooner. Tyler will see a doctor here just to check on Tyler and make sure he’s okay. This doctor will keep in touch with Dr. Rodriguez.

Please keep Tyler in your prayers. He’s still got a long way to go. His legs are hurting and beginning to slip off the big bone again. Tyler will have to go see Dr. Beckish here in Greenville about his legs. He will have to put new screws in.

The flight home was much better than the one to Maryland. The beeper only went off on Tyler because of the metal in his body.

My eye surgery is on August 5th. Say a little prayer for me. The doctor said that I am having a cornea transplant and that I will be just fine in a few days.

Everyone else is doing fine and we thank god for that. Also thank god for placing each of you in our lives. Without you, there’s no Tyler. God is hearing your prayers. God bless each of you and please let your family no how much you love them.
