Update and Fundraiser Info

Tyler continues to battle on. He has his bad days and his okay days. For the most part, they have his pain under control. He's on a LOT of medication to make that happen. They are continuing to experiment with different chemos, but still, none have caused the tumor to shrink. They are still trying to get him home. Every week, they set a new day of that week as their goal. But, Tyler is just too sick to be released at this point. Sometimes it's his blood counts, sometimes the pain and sometimes it's a fever. Poor kid has a lot going on.

If you've been keeping up with his story, you know he has been in the hospital for over a year now. He did have a brief 10 day release to go home in July, but had to come back due to complications. Tyler will be 19 on October 28th. He has spent his entire 18th year of life in a hospital bed. He's such a brave kid, who is full of silent endurance. I've rarely heard him complain and never once has he wanted to give up this fight. No matter what the doctors tell him about this outcome, no matter how much pain he suffers from, he still keeps going. He's brave.

His mom is brave too. Always by his side, encouraging him not to give up. Sacrificing everything to be by her son night and day. She's sick of the hospital. She wants to be home, but still she waits by his side. She stays sleeping in a chair next to him, each night.

The family has decided to put another spaghetti dinner together for Ty and Michelle. We would love to have you join us for an evening of fun and dinner. Here are the details:
