Tyler's surgery went well this morning. They cleaned him up again and were able to put in a feeding tube and a drain tube. His blood count is up to 5 now. The dialysis is helping with that. He is now in dialysis for the next 6 hours.
The plan is to go back in on Wednesday and clean him again. They will also have to do a tracheotomy for the ventilator. He can't have it in his throat for more than 2 weeks, so they have to change that. And with the drain from today, he will no longer have one going through his nose. Hopefully that will give him some more comfort.
Tyler is still very critical and very septic. We will cling to the positive news (Philippians 4:8) and continue to pray for his full healing.
