Hello Everyone,

Tyler’s surgery is over and he seems to be doing just fine. Of course on more pain medication. He’s such a strong little boy. We got to Charleston Monday night and Tyler said, “Nanny, go ahead and take me to the hospital. I want to get this over.” He wasn’t scared. I told him he couldn’t go till Tuesday morning. Ashley said he went in to get ready for surgery on Tuesday and told the nurse to give him the gas mask and put him to sleep; he wanted to get it done and over with.

We were told that they cut the bone off and that there was part of the metal plate also sticking through, so they cut that off also. Doctor O’Neal said that Tyler’s bone that was taken from his leg to replace his jaw has also started to die. I told Ashley I would give Tyler my bones if they could use them. She told me that they can’t; Tyler will always have trouble and he will need lots more surgeries. They don’t know if they can figure out what to do about his jaw and no hinge; right now they don’t know how to fix Tyler’s jaw. I am going to ask Dr.O’Neal to call Dr. Mars in Florida about Tyler’s jaw.

First, I want to thank God. With God all things are possible. That has been proven so many times with Tyler and our family. Praise the Lord for his mercies. We are truly blessed. I want to thank some special people that are always willing to help. First thanks to Happy Days crew for the food card that really helped out. You all are just wonderful. We have some left over money on the food card to use when we come back in two weeks for an appointment. Sorry Tyler was so hyper in your office! I don’t know why he’s like that, guess it comes from all that has been done to him. He gets very nervous around people. Thanks Shannon for keeping baby Nathan every time we need you it sure helps so we can be with Tyler during surgery. We love you.

Thanks also to Pat for all the movies that kelp all the kids happy during our four hour doctorive there and back. Thanks to each of you for the most important thing of all, your prayers. Tyler has now had twenty-seven surgeries and must face so much more. Please keep signing Tyler’s page. We count it as one more prayer for Tyler. God bless each of you; know that we love and appreciate you all. Please pray for some miracles for TyTy.
