Update Wednesday, April 1

Tyler had surgery to break up the scar tissue and adhesions in his shoulder and elbow this morning about 7:30 (Wednesday). The Dr. said it wasn't as bad as they were expecting when they got in there and he had good range of motion while asleep. They gave several injections in the elbow and shoulder of Kenolog which is a steroid.

Dr. Griswald called the Hendrix Rehab center in Abilene and they made an appointment for him at 11:45 tomorrow. They expect him to have agressive rehab three days a week for two to six weeks. This will help keep the scar tissue from reforming and to keep his range of motion.

Hopefully this will keep Tyler from having another skin graft. Please pray it is successful.

Trey is getting use to the braces and is doing good on everything else.
