Everything is pretty much the same. Some good news is that Tyler's white blood count went from .6 to 2.5. He's still very critical and very septic, so please continue to pray that the infection will clear up. They are going to go in again tomorrow morning at 7:00 AM to see if they can put the feeding tube in and clean him some more.
He's starting to wake up a little more because his body is used to the sedation medicine. So, they switched his pain meds and that seems to make him drowsy. I was able to talk with him tonight, while his eyes were open for a few minutes. I guess I should say talk to him, not with him. Me and his papa Bill were in there praying over him and telling him to call on Jesus, even in his head since he can't talk. I told him how the Bible says if we confess Jesus is Lord and believe in our hearts that He was raised from the dead, we will be saved (Romans 10:9). I must admit I started crying when I saw his big burly papa begin to massage his toes and legs, and share with him how he prays. Such love for his grandson! Tyler, who hates to be doted over, seemed to be trying to smile or say something. He didn't give us his typical 17 year old eye roll. May God be glorified!
Please continue to pray for Tyler's healing and emotional strength for the family.
