Update on Tyler
Just an update on Tyler. Over the last several months, Tyler's cancer marker has been climbing. As bad as this sounds there is still good news, he had a CT scan on Monday and there were no signs of lesions (cancer) in his body. The first treatment that he was on became ineffective as the cancer became immunne, just as bacteria becomes immune to antibiotics over time. The second treatment hasn't worked at all and it has lead to the rising numbers. There are still options to look at and explore through the coming weeks that may lead to some success. The good news in all of this is that as long as the CT scan shows nothing and he doesn't have any medical issues other than the side effects of chemo, Ty's doctor isn't to concerned about the numbers. Our family has been struggling with the news, but we have kept our spirits up and our faith in God. The only cure is through Heavenly Father and our faith in Him to remove the disease. All we can ask of anyone is for your continued thoughts, prayers, love, and support. TyAnne has been growing like crazy. She is now 17 months old and very active. She loves to be outside. We bought her a little slide and she loves to play on it. She has the most adorable smile. She brightens everyones spirit when she is around.
