Unfortunately, Tyler's pain did not stay down. It shot back up to a 10 by yesterday afternoon. His stomach was swelling as well. They took some x-rays and found that he has air in his bowels again. It's where it is supposed to be, but just too much of it, which is causing excruciating pain. They put a tube through his nose, to the bowel, to try and alleviate some of the air. They also gave him some medicine that calmed him and allowed him to rest. He's sleeping this morning, which is a good thing.
Thank you for your continued prayers for his healing and comfort. Please also pray for Michelle and family, as it is so very difficult to watch him when he's in this kind of pain and there's nothing you can do to help.
As a follower of Christ Jesus, I found this blog post, at Desiring God, very encouraging in light of the suffering we've been walking through over the last 10 or so months. Take a few minutes to read it: Jesus Has Overcome this World.
I will continue to rest in Him!
I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the
world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the
world. (John 16:33)
