Friday Night

Cindy called after the 9:00 visit. Tyler had ask for chicken fried steak and he ate a little of it at the 6:00 visit. Tonya also got him some apple pie with ice cream and he ate most of the ice cream. He hasn't eaten in 19 days so I guess his stomach has shrunk . They have him exercising his arm where he had the first skin graft. Today was another hard day because he went to the tank as well as getting up to take a few steps. They have set the last skin graft surgery for Tuesday at 12:00.

They were able to take the laptop computer into Tyler's room in ICU. Of course he really doesn't realize what all happened and how long it has been going on. Tonya read several of the stories about the accident, some of the comments and Bill Myers article on "First Responders". Tyler was very touched and Cindy said they all cried a few tears while going over the details and explaining what all has happened. Tyler was amazed (as we all are) at how many hits this blog has had and how fast it has grown. They were only able to share a few of the comments so maybe they can continue reading to him tomorrow.

UPDATE ON TREY: Ronda took Trey to the Haskell Rodeo tonight. Don't know how long they stayed but Cindy said he was feeling a little stronger each day and he told her he had taken a long nap today so our prayers are being answered for his sleep. Thank God! They had put a phone in Tyler's room and he can call out so he called Trey. Cindy said Tyler had asked a lot of questions about Trey.

Go Tyler go! Keep on getting well. The finish line at the ICU is closer to leaving. Keep getting well! Sounds like you have already begun to make the biggest leaps in recovery. He does work through us that love Him. Git 'er done! I told your mom and dad it would have been a lot quieter at stock shows without you. Can't wait to share more stories! Get well!

Way to go, Tyler! I know this will be a difficult road to travel, but you are a strong and wonderful person. You have amazed us all so far! I know you will make it through and be home before you know it with Tonya and your beautiful children. I will continue to pray for you.
Love,
