Hello to all of Tyler's family, friends & biggest fans! Tyler is scheduled to have open heart surgery on July 2nd to have his aortic root replaced. He was officially diagnosed with Marfan Syndrome which is a genetic disorder that affects the body's connective tissue. It is the cause of the enlargement of his aortic root, so it's time to get it replaced! He'll be having the surgery at Doernbecher's up at OHSU. They tell us Tyler will be in the hospital for about a week. We'll do our best to keep everyone updated on his surgery and recovery.
