Tyler saw the doctors at the University of Maryland yesterday. We are not too happy. Our wonderful Dr. Rodriguez has taken another job at the University of New York, and they will not accept Tyler’s Medicaid so he has to stay at the University of Maryland with a couple of doctors that were on Dr. Rodriguez’s team. Dr. Rodriguez said that he’s not giving up on Tyler, but leaving Tyler in hands that he trusts. He said he will only be a phone call away.

He said that this is a once in a lifetime chance that he couldn’t turn down. I don’t know how this is going to work out, because Dr. Rodriguez didn’t charge Tyler, only the hospital did. They accepted Medicaid at the rate South Carolina paid. We are expected to pay everything above that. We owe the hospital thousands right now. I think that the new doctors will expect payment. I don’t know what will happen with that. Low-income families just don’t have it. I can’t blame them for that. Please keep praying for Tyler

His surgery is set for January 27. They are trying to get it all arranged. It will take a lot to get all the doctors together for this surgery, which will be 12 to 15 hours or longer. They will be taking Tyler’s hipbone. This time, we didn’t want them taking any more bone from Tyler. There isn’t anything left to take. But we don’t have much choice. He has to have the surgery and he has to have a doctor. But no doctors will accept Tyler because of all of the previous surgeries.

This will be Tyler’s 60th surgery. Can you know the hurt, the suffering, the worries and the pain? What if this was your child? We know god has placed angels in Tyler’s life. That’s why he’s still here.

Tyler will be starting a pain clinic here in Greenville. He has been taking pain medication so long that the Maryland doctor thinks he needs pain management. He will have a pain pump while in the hospital in Maryland. Gosh, angels we need your prayers. We are set up with Ronald McDonald House for a month starting January 25.

If anyone wants to help with Christmas, please let us know. This family really needs it. I will be putting a few jars out to try helping Tyler.

MY LOVE AND THANKS TO ALL TYLER’S ANGELS OUT THERE. WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE TO HELP. TYLER AND I LOVE YOU!
