But that wasn’t all. Tyler also dedicated a heartfelt Instagram post to his wife.
“We just dropped her off,” he wrote as a caption the a selfie of the pair. “We haven’t held each other & just cried like that for a long time. Even after 12 years, I continue to be AMAZED by her strength, vulnerability, & courage to get help.”
He added, “‘As long as I am alive, you will never be alone’ – It is my call to arms & I will fight this war with her right by her side, we will not surrender to this…I will go to battle EVERY TIME for her!”
