This past week has been both good and bad for Skyler.  At the beginning of the week he was very sick.  They found a yeast infection in his central line and scheduled another surgery to replace it.  During the surgery they discovered Skyler had blood clots around his heart.  In order to get rid of the blood clots they couldn't put the central line back in his heart.  They had to leave his wound open and put some special dressing over it to soak up the clots.  His levels were extremely low and he was in a lot of pain and just so sick.  Yesterday he was actually doing pretty well.  He was awake and alert and responding and answering our questions.  He even felt well enough to go for a wagon ride around the halls.  He has started losing his hair but still wears such cute mohawks.  Today he felt well enough to have a bath in the bath tub.  Since they are still unable to put the central line back in, he has to be poked two times a day which is hard on him.  The IV team came in today to issue the Chemo treatment and had to put a special light all over his hands and feet trying to find a good enough vein to put the IV.  They were finally able to just take out his IV he had in and put a new one in it's place.  He was so brave for this he didn't even whimper when they poked him!! 
Here is cousin Kayson pulling Skyler while the nurse is trying to get him hooked up to his oxygen machine. 
On the walk Sky really wanted to stop and get the Lego Batman nintendo game so he could go back to his room and play it.
Kayson loved pulling Skyler around the halls and Sky was having so much fun!  It was so nice for him to be able to get out of his room for a few minutes.
Kayson giving Skyler loves, although Sky was a little worried about him getting too close.
If anyone has pictures they have taken of Skyler they would like to have shown on his blog please email them to me at  We would love to share your expierences you have been having with Skyler as well.
