Some News from the Oncologist

Finally, after so many weeks with nothing, we do have some news from the surgical oncologist today. It's not the news we were hoping for, however. The surgeon has met with the adult cancer surgeons and the pediatric surgeons. The tumor is not operable at this point. They said it is like cement on all of his organs.

They are trying to get him into a trial. They need to do some more biopsies in order to see if he can be a candidate for the trial they have in mind. If that doesn't work, they will try another one.

Please pray for Tyler. I know you are already, but today's news is so disheartening. We are all emotionally and physically drained. Tyler (and his mom...and the rest of us) need renewed strength and hope. Please pray that he will be a match for the right trial. Please pray that they will find a breakthrough for him. Our family is continually grateful for your thoughts and prayers these last few months.
