This past week and a half Skylers new best friend has been his pink barf bucket. He has just been so sick and constantly throwing up. He is also still spiking fevers as high as 105 degrees F at least twice a day. So he is just pretty much miserable all the time. He does put up a good front of being ok though even though I know he isnt feeling good. He has learned that if he says he doesnt feel good then most likely the nurse will come in with medicine and even sometimes a poke. Poor kiddo. He is still talking and being pretty darn cute though. He keeps making everybody laugh with his little comments and please and thank yous.
He got another platelet and blood transfusion today. The matched platelets have helped in bringing his counts up higher right after he gets transfused though, so he has been getting them every other day now instead of everyday which is an improvement. One day his counts jumped up to over 200! Holy cow thats super high for him. It was funny because all the doctors and nurses couldnt believe that that was actually HIS platelet count. Of course the next day it dropped down to 20, but still thats great that it went up that high.
