Things don't go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up. They happen to break you down and build you up so you can be all that you were intended to be.” ~Samuel Johnson

Hospital day 4
Ty is feeling a little better today. I hope you are used to TMI by now...just keepin it real. The antibiotics have made it so he can't hold it in so he pooped a total of 8 times yesterday and last night. Cleaning that up is heinous cause it is too painful to wipe so we just hold him under the sink faucet until he is all washed off. They have a bidet sp? but the water is freezing cold and it comes out so fast is splashes everywhere when it hits the target...he wasn't too fond of that method and neither was I with poopy water splashing on me. After throwing away 6 underwears Brady finally convinced him to wear a pull-up last night.
He is actually wanting to play a little today for the first time in two weeks. In the pic above he is playing hide and seek. : ) It was pretty hard to find him until he popped out of his blanket...
It has been a lot of fun to get him to smile today! We haven't seen many of those lately.
I threw the tiger at him and he 'lassoed' it and the elephant a few times. Right now I'm waiting for the doc to come back and tell me what the lab meant by 'abnormal lymphocytes'. He said usually that means mono, but of course in a leukemia patient it could mean blasts...which means relapse. Hoping it is mono or some other weird thing cause blasts means leukemia and in this stage of treatment that would be really really bad news. White count is up a hair 1.0, segs 4, bands 0 which makes ANC 40 (which rounds down to zero). RBC 2.94, HCT down more at 24.1 (that's getting close to transfusion level again), PLTS down a little at 92. I'll post more info when I have more info... thanks for the prayers
