Hi, Tyler’s surgery went okay; he was in surgery about two hours, thirty minutes. Dr. Oneal took out a piece of metal and three screws. He said we may have to bring Tyler back and do more because his jaw may hurt worse. He said to bring Tyler home; Ashley knows how to take care of him. His jaw doesn’t look too good. Last night, Tyler told me not to worry. He said, “It’s ok, Nanny. I don’t mind. It wont hurt bad.” He then gave me the biggest hug. I love him with all my heart.

Dr. Oneal said that he had been on the phone for hours trying to find someone that could fix Tyler’s jaw, but hasn’t found any one. They won’t take the medicaid. He said that he’s not giving up on Tyler; that he’s going to keep trying. He said that he could go back and take a hip or rib and try again, but it would fail so he doesn’t want to do it. That is also what Dr. Marx was going to do and Dr. Oneal says it just wont work for Tyler.

This has been 29 surgeries for Tyler. With out some one taking the Medicaid at south Carolina rates, Tyler won’t get a doctor to fix his jaw. It’s really all about money. This is getting worse every day. I fear for the worst. Tyler needs a special surgeon not a cancer doctor. The cancer is in remission, but the aftermath of the cancer monster is awful. We are left with nowhere to turn. Isn’t there just one doctor out there that would help this child out of the goodness of his heart? I pray we get some answers before its to late for my little Tyler.

We have Contacted Medicaid and yes they will pay for us to go somewhere. The thing is, they won’t pay what that state’s Medicaid pays, so they wont take Tyler. Please pray about this and for Tyler. His jaw is hurting really bad right now. Tyler’s having to take really strong pain medication. Thank all of Tyler’s angels that love and care about him. You know who you are we love you all so much. Your prayers and support are why Tyler is here today. God has listened to every one of those prayers.
