NEW UPDATE ON TYLER TUCKER - THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS. PLEASE KEEP PRAYING FOR THIS SWEET LITTLE BOY.
Tyler's sleeping most the time he's own a pain pump and gives his self pain medication.
He was cut from left ear to right ear with big stitches that they will have to take out before he can go home. Going home is going to be a while, they still saying he has to stay in the hospital a week yet and a week at Ronald Mc Donald house. Tyler will have to have a pic line in when he goes home and he will have to have antibiotics and have to take pain medication. His dr said that the jaw is swelled right now but the jaw and mouth is going to be pulling over to one side and that may be painful. They removed everything and he has nothing there but skin.
We also was told by Dr. Rodriguez that Tyler has to come to Maryland once a month now of for possibly a year. They said that his body is rejecting everything they do so there's nothing left but the bone transplant from dad and that cannot be done till they get Tyler to take that virus. This iso he won't get the cancer back from the medication he would have to take.
They did blood transfusions but nothing has worked. Now they are having trouble with his blood now. Before any surgery, he has to be admitted a few days before and they told Ashley (mom) that this will be for the rest of Tylers life in order to find the blood that will work. Dr. Rodrigeuz says this sets Tyler back but he said that he will never give up and that one day he will fix Tyler jaw!
I want to thank all of you for your love, support, prayers and all the cards Tyler loved them. I know that God placed you all in Tyler's life along with doctor Rodriguez and his wonderfully team.
Ashley is already missing Jayden and Ethan. Dad Richie is taking really good care of them.
The people at the Ronald McDonald house is so good to us and we love them. Thank you sandy and Susan and the rest of the team.
