Yesterday Skyler went in for another surgery to try and remove the fungal infection in his sinuses.  We were told that they were unable to remove all of the infection because there was just too much and removing it would mean that it could leave his face disfigured.  So as of right now the fungal infection is a lot more severe than the Leukemia and they are taking him off of Chemo to try and build up his White Blood cell count and place him on medications to try and kill the fungus.  The Dr's are waiting to here the results from pathology to decide what type of action they will take.  This is an extremely hard time for Crystal and all of their family.  Please keep this little family in your prayers!

Skyler just wanted Mommy to be with him and hold him.  So precious!
Skyler has bed sores from laying on his back for over 3 weeks so he now has to lay on his sides and rotate every couple of hours.  He gets lots of help and support to help him roll over in his bed.  Skyler loves it when Mommy holds him in her arms!
We love you so much Skyler and Crystal!!  You are always in our hearts and prayers!
