TYLER’S BIRTHDAY WAS WONDERFUL BECAUSE ALL HIS ANGELS CARE SO MUCH ABOUT HIM. WE LOVE YOU ALL. THANK YOU

Below is what happened in the last surgery Tyler had. He will return to Maryland on Nov 7 to see what they find and set the next surgery dates.

The doctors put a spacer in, made of some kind of hospital cement, instead of the jaw they had made. They hope the spacer will grow a capsule of healthy tissue around it along with blood vessels for when they do the next surgery. They are working on scheduling surgery for a few months from now. When they do that surgery, they said that they might use his hipbone to make him a new jaw or the one they had made for him, depending on what the skin and tissue look like when they go back in. They also want to try to fix the nerve then too, but it just depends on what they find. They might have to do it in a separate surgery. They plan on fixing it this time by connecting the bad nerve to a different one in his face, instead of one from his foot again. They said if they do, in order to smile or control his cheek he will have to bite down, but that after a while his brain would relearn and he wouldn’t have to bite down anymore. They said they hope they can do it with the jaw surgery, because the longer they wait to get the nerve fixed, the harder it is to get it working again.

We love you all and are so grateful for all that you have done to help. You are Tyler’s angels!
