My Nephew, Tyler

This morning my Nephew, Tyler, was attacked by a pit bull/chow chow mix at his friends house in Ogden, Utah. I don't know all the details exactly, but He was in surgery and had all sorts of lacerations sewn back together. His upper jaw is broken, and one of his molars is wired in. He did have a hole in his cheek .. BUT, everything is going to be okay. We should know in a couple days if the tooth they stuck back and wired in his mouth will stay. He is at home, and he will be out of commission for at least a week. He is only 10 years old.. Hopefully this trauma wont bring up too many issues in the future with dogs.

I would ask you all to keep him in your prayers. His family is set to move next week up to the Idaho Falls area.

The dog who attacked him was voluntarily put down.
