Latest Update for sweet Tyler
Tyler is doing good. He sees Dr. Rodriguez tomorrow and if he says that
if Tyler is ok, we will go home on Friday. Tyler is really wanting to be home.
He is still on a lot of pain medication. We will take Tyler home and
try to make things normal for him.
He will get to spend Christmas with his brothers and Nathan.and we thank God for all the many blessings that he has given us. And for all of you that have prayed so hard for him .God hears your prayers.
Tyler's neck is still bleeding and he has to keep gauze on it. His neck
was cut two inches further than the last time. His legs is doing good however,
he cannot walk but I think he will in a few weeks.
Tyler said he misses his home bound teacher Mrs. Bright. We called her and Tyler talked to her. He loves Mrs. Bright. He also wanted to talk to Debby at Courage Kids. He wanted to tell her he loved her. She was so surprised, she loves TyTy so much.
He's such a trooper and Dr. Rodriguez said he was so proud of Tyer. He
says Tyler will have to have more surgery in about three months
but that he sees a bright future for Tyler. I hate that all the surgery
was not done now so Tyler could get a break but Dr. Rodriguez is doing what is best for Tyler.
He said this is a temporary fix and that the plastic fixture he put in can
not stay in Tyty's jaw. He said pray hard that if the bone from dad
works, Tyler may never need another surgery after the next one is done or at least not until Tyler is older.
Medicaid would not pay for Tyler's walker said that we had to pay
up front for one and we did finally get a wheel chair. We ended up
paying for Tyler's medication so we only could get what he had to have
until he gets back to SC where his medicaid will pay for it. They told
us at the hospital that they did not have a contract with SC Medicaid
for medication. Anyway it was taken care of.
We were spending thirty dollars a day at the hospital for dinner it
was really high cost here. We were using our Subway gift cards for
lunch. Ashley said she never wants to see a sub again. We are so grateful that people care about Tyler and our family and has helped us.
This nice lady Caterina and her husband broughr us dinner one night to
the hospital. She is from COLES Foundation and was so sweet and we loved
her visit. She also brought us a donation and ballons for Tyler. We sure thank her and are so grateful. We thank all of you for all your prayers love and support no matter what you did, we thank you.
Tyler has a long way to go so please keep him in your prayers.
We will be getting ready for the next surgery so we still need
donations and prayers.
If you would like to help Tyler and his family, please donate at tylertucker.com.or using my pay pal, firstname.lastname@example.org also you can send in mail. I promise you that all the money that goes in, is for him.
Tyler's account is for his medical care and trips to Maryland. These trips are really costly.
Tyler will have to come back to Maryland in three or four weeks for a
check up this is a long way but Dr. Rodriguez said he has to see Tyler
himself. Tyler will have a doctor in Greenville that will check him also but can
not treat Tyler.
We were not able to get a flight back home so papa has to drive all
the way here with Nathan and he will be driving us home. It took him
eleven hours to get here. We sure thank the Flights of Hope for getting us here.
We were told that Tyler's jaw had so much infection that if we had been
another day getting here he possibly could have died.
Also please pray for Tyler's buddy, Dylan Kirby. He is having jaw surgery
on the 15th of December at MUSC of Charleston. He is 16 and needs your
I am doing great I walked up to the market place today and was not even
tired. Last time I walked I could not hardly breathe and was not able to
walk around the place after I got there. I still have a lot to lose but losing
seventy pounds sure has helped me. I have gone from a 4x to x large .
and I feel so much better.
Please hug your children - what if this was your child? I pray you
will never have to see your child go through what Tyler has gone through and it is not over.
So please pray pray pray.
Thank you all for all the prayers
