At the Hospital again

Update at 2:00, so far we are doing fine, Ty just woke up from a VERY long nap and is watching Tom and Jerry.  Brady and the kids are picking apples at the neighbors and Brady made them his specialty Ramen soup with potatoes, onions and carrots.  They are having a great fall day and mom is resigned to the fact that being at the hospital is now part of normal and is enjoying her quiet time while it lasts.
3:00pm He took three bites of his turkey sandwich, and gagged and almost threw up each time.  He also ate one noodle out of his chicken soup.  Am I weird to be happy that he actually got food in his tummy?
Tyson was doing pretty good Tuesday and Wednesday, even eating pretty good...

He was up and around for a lot of the day

And smiling!!

Thursday he didn't eat much, and puked up what he did manage to nibble down....then started to fever in the night and here we are at the hospital again, waiting for blood tests results and cultures to see what's causing the fever.  Whenever there is fever we have to go to the hospital cause there is potential for serious infection when they are getting chemo and immune compromised.  I was dragging my feet at 3:30 this morning cause I didn't want to take him in.  When i finally called the oncologist at 5:30 she was kind of alarmed that I waited so long.  She called PMC and got us directly admitted.

Ty was pretty mad that we weren't going to the horsey doctor (PCMC) but dad did his fatherly duty and rounded up a gamecube and now they are having a grand time playing Robots.  And here we sit waiting for test results and culture results to see what he has and see if we have to stay inpatient.  If his ANC is low he will be staying. 

Update...ANC is a big fat zero so I'm sure we will be here for a few days.  HCT 33.3  PLTS 104  WBC 1.6  just putting that in here for my records. :) oh and weight was 28.8lbs (13.1kg)
