Thursday evening

Sorry we are so late in getting an update today but internet and computer problems kept us off the net but finally we have a new post.

Cindy and Larry surprised us all by being at church last night. They had to come home after 23 days to do a little bill paying and check on things here. Trey and Ronda had to come to the Dr. in Lubbock so they left them to visit Tyler and Tonya. They gave us a good report on the past 3 weeks and how blessed they have been by all the visits, calls, and love they have received.

I talked with Tonya tonight to get a new update on Tyler. She said he had a pretty good day. He is eating pretty good. He is very uncomfortable with the splint/brace on his arm where they did the skin graft. The Drs. said they would take the bandages off the grafts tomorrow and if it is healing they will leave the splint/brace off. Cindy said it covered his arm and chest.

The plan is to start serious rehab and exercise on Saturday. They told him his vacation was about to come to an end. 5 surgeries do not seem like a vacation to me but it sounds like they are about to start Tyler on some real work. Tonya said they would see how tough he is and if he worked really hard they would move him either to the step down unit (this is where family can come and go at any time) or actually to the rehab unit. He will have to walk every step he takes. If all goes well the goal is to get him home by the following weekend.

They are asking that we continue to pray there will be NO INFECTION! PRAY FOR STRENGTH BECAUSE THIS IS GOING TO BE REALLY TOUGH BUT WE KNOW TYLER CAN DO IT.

I also talked to TREY: He is feeling a little better each day and sleeping better each night. He still has a little numbness in his face which is a miracle considering where he has come from. We are asking you all to just thank God for the many miracles He has done and for the way God is using this for HIS GLORY!

If you have a problem praising Him just listen to the music on this site and sing along with it….from your heart. OUR GOD IS AN AMAZING GOD.
