7th surgery complete

Tyler managed to pull his feeding tube out of position with all of his frustrations over the last couple of days. So, today they went in and tried to secure it again. They also cleaned him out and will go back in again in a couple of days. He's also going to start getting blood transfusions because his blood count is low. They will continue to do dialysis and watch the blood clot. Today he's running a fever of 103 again.

They have switched up his meds to try and keep him more sedated again. They also ordered him a bigger bed, so hopefully these things will get him a little more comfortable. He's in a lot of pain and he's frustrated and emotional when he wakes up. It's really taking a toll on the emotions of the rest of us who are watching him struggle.

We thank you for partnering with us in continued prayers for Tyler and our family. We know it has been a long time, with many updates, and not a whole lot of change or good news. But please don't be discouraged, keep the prayers coming! Here are some encouraging words, for my prayer warriors, that I read this morning.

The righteous cry, and the LORD hears And delivers them out of all their troubles. ~ Psalm 34:17

The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. ~ Psalm 34:18

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. ~ 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
