After three hours in the ER tonight, they admitted us on the floor.  Earlier today Skyler's ear starting draining fluid.  This has happened before when his ear drums have burst so I called the on call oncologist and she said to take him to the emergency room.  They looked and said it didnt looked infected and that it was still intact, but they just didnt know why it was draining.  They called our regular oncologist and he said he wouldnt put him on any other antibiotics right now so it was looking like they were just going to send us home, but then Skyler started throwing up and when he was done he had a lot of little red dots all over his skin.  This is what happens when your platelets are low so they checked his platelets and they were 8.  So they sent us back up to the floor for a transfusion.  Im not sure if we are going to stay the night or not yet, I kinda hope so because its late, Skyler is tired, Im tired, and he has all his meds that still need to be given so they might as well do them here.  Skyler is actually happy to be here (weird I know) but this is what he has called home for so long I think it kind of a comfort for him here.

So sorry you guys had to go in! I know what you mean about being admitted though. After too long in the ER you just want more comfortable quarters and something to be settled. Even if you're staying overnight at least you know so you can get down to the business of staying there. Hope you get to come home soon! Hang in there guys!

That sucks! My son's ear was draining and it wasn't from a broken ear drum. It was a yucky green slime like boogers only out of his ear and it was stinky. They did a CT and found out that he had mastoiditis, which is an infection of the mastoid bone and very uncommon. But because he had no immune system and all his other health problems it seemed like he was doomed to get it I guess. They wouldn't of even been ale to detect it if he hadn't had that CT scan. This happened to us twice but the second time it hadn't reached his mastoid bone yet. Good luck. Hopefully they will be able to figure something out.

The ER is the worst! I am sorry you had to be there, but so glad Sky was able to get some platelets. Please keep us posted and let me know if I can do anything!
