Sunday Evening

I can tell by the hits on this site that many of you kept coming back to see if a new post had made it onto the website so here we go:

The day started off really rough for Tyler but being the tough guy that he is he was able to go to the tank room without the IV Drugs. His nurse said, "He is a tough one"
and he was really proud of Tyler. I think he had some pain killer by mouth but nothing else. The nurse was very proud of him.

The nurses let the kids go back in (actually they go into the hall...not his room) to see him and spend about 15 minutes. It was another good visit. They also took the computer back in and also the book that Donald Edrington made after the first few days so Tyler could read all about the wreck, etc. and comments from the beginning. Cindy said it was a very emotional day. Keith came to see Tyler and as Tyler is realizing what Keith did for him he is just overwhelmed.

Bill Hart of the Abilene Reporter News had a note about the heroics of Keith and the era of the Thompson boys that you might want to check out. The title of the article is 'Two Men Are Alive Thanks To This Boy'. It was a nice compliment to our young hero Keith Cypert. Click here for the article.

Cindy says they have seen the answers to all of the prayers during the past 5 days. He is definitely making progress. His last (we are praying) skin graft is scheduled for Tuesday at 12:00 p.m. so please don't stop praying.

TREY: Trey and Ronda were at church this morning. He is doing very good but tires easily. He of course overdid it at the rodeo so he was tired today. Ronda told me that the rash from the allergic reaction was all gone which is a miracle because the drs. had said it would last from weeks to months. They canceled the appointment with the dermatologist.
Ronda did ask that we pray for Trey's mouth. His teeth are tightening up, however he is ready for steak! He is still on soft and semi soft foods.

Please join me in praying the boys will take it easy and allow their bodies to heal. They have been through a lot and I pray that they don't overdo. I know they are young and that is in their favor but as we all know they have been through a lot and need to heed the Drs. orders.

and I'd be FOR SURE taking pain meds... I couldn't handle it..

we have a friend that caught on fire out at the test site (my brother was right next to him) .. his rifle misfired or something and caught his burlap on fire...

he was severely burned.. his face and all over...

he said it was the worst pain he'd ever experienced in his life...

he's doing great and is a police officer here in Vegas now...

Our God is an awesome God. It was great to see Trey, Ronda, Sydney and Cheney at the rodeo. They had a prayer for the Tyler and Trey after the team rode into the arena during the grand entry.
Tyler: Those doctors and nurses don't know what a tough cowboy you are with Mogul toughness mixed in. I read the Bill Hart article in the Abilene paper it was great for him to write about you all. Love and prayers to all.

Hey everyone,
Well, nothing will help you more (Tyler) than seeing your children!
It is repetitive to say how much we depend on this Blog-site...but we really do. We check it several times a day! Not sure what we all think...lol...that you guys are supposed to keep the rest of us informed by the hour!
WE are so thrilled that Trey, Tyler & Keith are all healing and will be back to themselves soon.
We will be back in Munday on June 20th for the weekend and fully expect that EVERYONE will be back home.
You may never know how many lives God has "shaken-up" through this painful tragedy...we have been hurting and praying for all of you from the moment we heard. I can only say that I know of two parents that are hugging our son's and their families a lot more!
See ya soon
Tim & Janie

Tyler, you are a wonderful brother in Christ. You are showing "true grit" in a spiritual form as well as the physical realm. Take care. I'll see you at the hospital soon, buddy. There we will share a few laughs. Looking forward to it.

God bless,

Spencer
