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.
