Tyler's kidneys continue to work and he is able to process the fluids they are giving him now. Praise God! This has taken the swelling in his upper body down significantly. His stomach and legs are still swollen but they have come down some as well. And, with the fever blanket on, he has not run a fever for the last 24 hours! He was also breathing on his own for 6 hours yesterday. The doctors are happy that he's making progress...slow, but it's progress. Please continue to pray that the swelling in his stomach and legs would go down and we would continue to see progress.
Now that the swelling has gone down, the brutal effects of the chemo are showing through. Tyler's skin is extremely dry and he has lost a lot of weight in his face and arms already, and he has lost a lot of hair. He's also a little more awake and shows signs of pain and discomfort. That, of course, is difficult for us to see. Please continue to lift our family in prayer for strength, especially for his mom. Thank you!
