Progress Report

You have probably already heard that Tyler got his slurpee on Thursday! Tyler is looking pretty good today. He was talking quite a bit last night with me and his papa. That was the first I've heard him talk with his trach collar. It was great!

He's making good progress with his stomach. The swelling is way down and he's starting to sit up more. His physical therapy is going well. He even stood up yesterday and took a couple of side steps. He's very weak, but definitely showing progress.

The surgeon came in this morning and said he's close to getting out of the ICU. He just needs to make some more progress with his trach and his food/diet.

In terms of the cancer, she also explained that UofM is one of few hospitals that takes a multi disciplinary approach. They have a team of 30 doctors from all areas (surgeons, pathologist, radiologists, oncologists, etc.) that meet on Wednesdays to review the cancer cases. They reviewed Tyler's case last Wednesday. Because his case is rare they did not come up with a plan yet. The team wanted more information and time. So we do not have any answers on any of that yet. Still waiting!

  1. WOW! The POWER OF PRAYER! Tyler sweetheart, we prayed for You and the family in church today as we do everyday. Cameron is always praying for You! He is so precious and I can't wait to read this little bit of good news. Gods blessings and so emotional over these little positive steps of getting better. xo
