Tyler Thompson went into surgery this7:30 A. M for his 18th time to be put to sleep. Another skin graft. Tonya called and said he was out but in a lot of pain. They too a 6 X 16 strip from his thigh which has already had skin removed for his first graft. The Doctor opened him up from under his arm to around the back of the arm to the top of the shoulder. They had to remove a lot of scar tissue. The Dr. is hopeful Tyler will not form as much scar tissue as it always has in the past.
He is in an airplane splint which keeps his arm from moving and they will check the graft on Thursday. They told him earlier if the graft takes he could be released on Friday. Please pray that this is successful and the last of this long ordeal.
