Tyler's next move...

Just a quick update...

Tyler is scheduled for another skin graft on Jan. 6. They will hopefully remove scar tissue in the shoulder area and then do more skin grafts in that area. They will remove the skin for the graft from his upper left thigh, which I believe is the first place they took it.

As you all know, this marks the beginning of another painful detour for Tyler and Tonya. I imagine that this surgery will be hard for Tyler for many reasons. This surgery most likely means another painful recovery. This is why we must all pray really hard that God would have mercy on Tyler and relieve the stress and pain. We pray that God would shorten the healing time and totally guide the doctors with every move. We pray that the Lord will strengthen Tonya and the kids as they walk through this time.

I know that this has shown me how I take for granted so quickly my own health and comfort.
As we move about our lives in comfort, free from bandages and pain, let us keep Tyler in our prayers constantly.

DEAR TYLER AND TONYA:
THE RUTH CLASS OF MUNDAY FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH IS MADE UP OF SIX OF YOUR SISTERS IN CHRIST: FRANCES CYPERT, PEGGY HERTEL, RUBY MEERS, ZONELL MOORE, LARUE REEVES, AND DOTTIE LOWREY.

WE ARE PRAISING GOD FOR YOUR PRECIOUS WITNESS AND FOR YOUR ALLOWING US TO BE A PART OF YOUR AGONIZING JOURNEY VIA THIS BLOG. HE WORKS IN SUCH MYSTERIOUS WAYS. . . . .JUST IMAGINE WHEN WE 'GET THERE' A FELLOW SAINT WILL STOP YOU ON THE GOLDEN STREETS AND THANK YOU FOR THEIR PLACE AT THE FOOT OF HIS THRONE BECAUSE OF YOUR WITNESS. . . .AND WE THOUGHT ONE HAD TO GO TO AFRICA TO BE A MISSIONARY. AFRICA PROBABLY WOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH EASIER, BUT HE KNEW WHO COULD FULFILL THIS ASSIGNMENT THE VERY BEST. . .GIVING GLORY TO HIS HOLY NAME!!!
. . .LOVING YOU!
. . .PRAYING FOR YOU!
. . .GRATEFUL THAT YOU ARE A CHILD OF THE ONE IN CONTROL.

Thompson Family, I just want to add to Dottie's comment that I am so thankful that we have her and Buster as one of our life-lines! Their love and care makes us all realize the tenderness and love of our God.

We are still praying for the Thompson family and will be praying especially for Tyler on the 6th.
