Cancer Board - Wednesday

Tyler is free of infection and off of the antibiotics. All of his cancer/tumor markers are back up, which is not good. And he's in a lot of pain. He had a CT scan last week and his case will again go before the UofM Cancer Board on Wednesday.

The board includes the surgical team. We are praying that they will look favorably on his case and take a chance at the risky surgery to "de-bulk" some of the tumor. This is very risky and the surgeons have not been on board with this plan, so far, since he has been at UofM. So, we are praying that they will somehow find a way to do the surgery. At this time, it seems to be his only hope of continuing this fight.

Please pray that all of the doctors on his case will have wisdom and discernment this Wednesday. Also pray that Tyler remains infection free and gets relief from some of this pain. He usually only has a small window of days without infection. He must remain infection free to be considered for surgery. This is also a pretty emotional week for all of us, especially his mom. Please pray for comfort and peace during this anxious time.

Finally, thank you again for the outpouring of cards that are already starting to come through. If you haven't already, please take a couple of minutes to send him a card. The information can be found on the previous post, which includes his new room number.
