Tyler is now in remission. This doesn't mean he is cured or better in anyway.
Sadly The cancer has done so much damage to Tyler's little body.
He has been through 55 surgeries facing 56. We will have to take him to MUSC for scans and Maryland for treatments. More surgeries for his entire life. He will spend his entire life going through this - he will never be 100% better as the doctors told us. He has had a lung removed and 1/2 of his leg bone taken out to replace his jaw [both legs]. This has caused Tyler to hurt so much when he walks.
Tyler had to be home bound for school. He has a wonderful teacher that comes out and he loves Mrs. bright so much.
Once again his jaw replacement isn't working with the leg bone or any thing else that the doctors have tried so they have to fix that again soon. There is a jaw being made for Tyler at this time. Not only all of this but he tends to get sick often and can only eat soft foods. His face on one side stays swollen and pulling sideways making his whole face hurt. He cannot do things like normal kids because of all these problems. We also have been told he maybe never able to have any children when he is older.
The cancer he had isn't like most common cancers. Tyler wasn't suppose to live is what the doctors told us. We are very lucky to have him I know he is gonna make it!!!!!! He has been fighting 9 years now.
The chance of Tyler's cancer coming back is very high, but we think he will be fine because we are trying so hard to get so much support for him and having the whole world caring about him. We have hope and Tyler is a warrior!
Be sure 2 leave a note in my Guest book. BOTH TYLERTUCKER.COM AND CARINGBRIDGE
Poor Tyler's been through a lot and could sure use some cheery mail to remind him that he is special and loved by God and all the angels that God has placed in his life. Share a little joy with Tyler by sending him some "happy mail." He loves cards and Christmas is here in four short weeks - reading Christmas cards would be great.
We love you all
