Thanks to all who have joined us on our emotional roller coaster ride these last couple of weeks. We had quite a scare this afternoon. It's no coincidence to me that a fever that continued to climb to dangerous levels all day, started coming down after I sent out an urgent prayer request to you all. Thank you for partnering with us in prayer for Tyler. God is good, even in these circumstances.
One of the many doctors tonight made a comment to Michelle that Ty is only alive because of his age. If this were a 30 year old, he wouldn't have made it this far. I say NO, that is not the only reason. We have the Most High God on our side and we'll continue to praise Him, even for these small victories!! We'll continue to ask him to be merciful to Tyler and this family.
Last week, Tyler's phone was getting texts from some of his friends. So I opened it up and started replying to his friends and giving them the blog to follow for status. As I was doing that, I ran across a text he sent to one of his buddies on the 4th (a few hours before his stomach perforated) and he said, "I'm just fighting for tomorrow...to see the next day". I say, "fight on Tyler!" and we will continue to hold you up in prayer!
The plan for tomorrow is to do the surgery around 10:45. They are hoping to put a mesh in him and close him, as well as do the tracheotomy for his ventilator. Again, thank you for your continued prayer! We so appreciate it!!
