Today marks one week in the ICU for Tyler. They tried to go back in this morning, but weren't able to do the feeding tube. There is still a lot of infection. They are doing an upper GI today to see if there is some additional leaking or if there is an area they can insert a tube. I really don't know what all of this means, just repeating what I'm told. He will do another 6 hours of dialysis today too. They will try to go in on Sunday again for another surgery.
Here are the things I choose to celebrate today - we have 11,000+ page views on this blog in just over a week. That's right, 11,000! Thanks to the many people who are expressing their concerns and praying for Tyler and the family. God is answering prayers for us, even in the midst of still seeing Tyler in such critical condition. His vitals are staying good. He's still fighting!! I mean, a week ago, when we asked "what are his chances", the surgeon literally sat there and told us "Tyler is minute to minute. If he makes it through the first hour, great, we'll see what the 2nd hour brings" Those were really scary words to hear!!! Praise God Tyler is still with us 1 week later. We are continuing to pray for his recovery and will only give Praise to our Lord and Savior for his progress!
