Ty started fevering again last night so we took him up to peds at the hospital so the doc on call could take a look at him.  The good news is his ANC is 2000, the bad news is his oxygen was at 77 when they hooked him up last night and it was taking a liter of oxygen to get him up over 90.  He tested positive for RSV which explains the oxygen problem. He is not a fan of the oxygen tubies in his nose and has been pretty quiet since we got here.
Since his ANC is good and the thing he is fighting is viral he doesn't have to be on antibiotics which is awesome.  They did a chest xray last night and it looked good
So they are going to try to slowly wean him off the oxygen today and see how he does.  So far he is doing fine at 3/4 liter.  Hopefully that will work and we will be home tonight or tomorrow.  Hopefully.
CBC this morning:  WBC 3.2, RBC 3.45, HGB 11.1, HCT 34.1, PLTS 205, %lymphocyte 31, ANC 1700.  His absolute lymphocyte count is a little low (1.0) which seems strange to me but I don't know much about it.
