Little ER Jaunt

Ty had a great birthday!  He is 5!!!!  We did a combo birthday party a couple of weeks ago for all of our December birthday kids so on his birthday his dad and grandpa took him and Ryan to Bamboo Garden and Outer Limits for some birthday fun. 
Brady put Ty's blanket back on him last night as we were headed to bed and he felt hot so we took his temp.  101.4.  Darn.  He was breathing heavy and had started a croupy cough after he went to bed so we knew it was probably just from that but we thought we should probably stay on the safe side and call Primary Children's to see what we should do. 
Of course they said to take him in cause any time you have fever with a central line you have to go see what his counts are and do blood cultures.  We got there at 12:15 so it officially wasn't Tyson's birthday anymore. 
We snuggled and snoozed off and on and they gave him some steroids for the croup and some tylenol for the fever.  Luckily his counts were great and we got to go home about 4:30 this morning.  I didn't get them all, but his ANC is 2300!  That is good news right before Christmas!  If it stays that high I imagine they will up his chemo pill dose a little when we go next week so we will see.  We are just glad his ANC is great and we don't have to stay there for a few days.  Merry Christmas!
