Quick update

Tyler is still on the 7th floor at UofM Children's hospital. He's still experiencing a lot of pain. They have been playing with the pain medications to get him comfortable. He is also still undergoing chemo treatments on Tuesdays. What a trooper, this kid! I'm truly astounded by his tenacity and endurance.

Thursday, they will be sending him to the ICU to try a new pain medication, a cousin of the lidacain. They have to administer it in the ICU because it can cause heart issues. This will allow them to closely monitor him again.They are hoping to get him on something that will allow him to go home.

As always, we appreciate your prayers and concern for Tyler and our family. Have a blessed day!
