More tubes

Tyler is still in lots of pain. He had another drain tube put in on Tuesday. This one is to drain some fluid that is around his liver. The tumor is pushing his liver up into his lungs. So, he is having some trouble breathing and is very jaundice. They are hoping to relieve some of that with this drain. He has also lost a lot of weight. He is down to around 180 lbs. He's looking frail and weak and in a lot of pain :(

They are still talking about possibly doing a surgery to cut out some of the tumor. They need to wait until he is stronger. The plan is to do another CT Scan on or around the 20th and then come up with a plan for the surgery.

Please pray that Tyler will get some relief from his suffering and that these doctors and surgeons will have continued wisdom in dealing with his case. Please also pray for his mom, that she will have renewed strength and hope on this long journey. Thank you for your continued prayers.
