‘Chief’ Tyler undergoes 47th surgical procedure

March 12, 2014

BURRILLVILLE – Tyler Seddon, the Pascoag boy who celebrated his seventh birthday last week with the help of thousands of police officers and firefighters, is recovering from yet another surgery that took place on Monday, his mother has confirmed.

It was Tyler’s 47th surgery since being diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia four years ago.

“Tyler had surgery yesterday. He had his port removed, a broviac line put in, a spinal tap and a bone marrow biopsy,” Rachel Seddon said in an update Tuesday on her Tyler’s Troops Facebook page. “After surgery he was very uncomfortable and has been on morphine every two hours. His platelets were also very low yesterday so we needed another transfusion. I will keep everyone updated as often as possible. Thanks everyone for all the support."
