Tyler Seddon is out of surgery and is recovering.

The mother of the Burrillville boy who is battling leukemia put the update on her Tyler's Troops Facebook page.

Tyler had a bone marrow biopsy and some other procedures earlier this week.

She says his platelets are low and he's in quite a bit of pain.

The update got more than a thousand likes on Facebook and more than 300 comments from people wishing him well.

The post read: "Tyler has surgery yesterday, he had his port removed, a broviac line put in, a spinal tap and a bone marrow biopsy.... After surgery he was very uncomfortable and has been on morphine every 2 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"
