Tyler is now on a trach collar and off of the ventilator! One less tube is a good thing. He doesn't like the sound the oxygen makes, but he'll get over that. He's not talking, but he's more alert and nodding and giving thumbs up. He also started 2-3 hours of bed physical therapy this week. He actually likes it a lot and it's going really well.
Please continue to pray for comfort and relief from pain for Tyler. Please also pray that the chemo will do its job in shrinking the tumor, but not have too many ill effects on his stomach, kidneys or any other major organ.
