Another surgery complete

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.


  1. Father God we raise Tyler's life up to You and ask that You heal his body Lord God. We pray that You would continue to heal him and restore his health. Lord we know that Your Will be done, but You did say we could ask You for anything in Jesus Name we are praying sincerely that Tyler recover a healthy young man. Our faith rest in You to guide the doctors, nurses and family to facilitate Your Will. We are thankful for every good report, praise be to God and In the name of Jesus we pray.

  2. As you all can see, our family has great trust! The more we trust in him, hope and mercy will come! Without hope we have nothing! Thank you all for lifting Tyler's name up in prayer! We need lots of prayer!

    Romans 12:12 Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.

    Romans 5:2-5 Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us

    Love you all!
