You Can Call Him Rocky

We finally got the results back from yesterday's LP and the news was not good. They tell us that his spinal fluid had 4% blasts. They'll be discussing options tomorrow and will fill us in tomorrow. Tyler will also have to get a bone marrow aspiration tomorrow. One of the concerns the doctors have is that Tyler's disease is evolving, so they want to look in his bone marrow to see how it compares to previous marrow extractions.

Rocky is on TV today and we just watched the scene where Rocky runs to the top of the Museum steps. The music is so hopeful and it makes me think of the fight that Tyler seems have against this disease. We can't figure out WHAT is going on with it!

Bad news again today, but hopefully the plan they come up with tomorrow will be the one that works. For now, we suspect the transplant is on hold.


  1. The Rocky theme is inspiring! And I can easily picture Tyler calling out "Yo, Mandy, I did it"!!!!!!

    You are both in our prayers.

  2. Aaawwwww nooo... Sorry to hear this, but I am going to keep those museum steps in mind.
    May tomorrow's news be much, much better.
    love and light
