Im too exhausted to go into too much detail, but we have been admitted to ICS at least for a couple of days.  Skyler has a blood clot in his neck and his brand new port is infected.  Yep infected.  (Insert a couple bad words here)  I heard those words again today that Skyler is famous for "Wow this normally doesnt happen."  Ummm...thanks doc, just what I wanted to hear. We just got back from surgery to remove the port and they have started him on a couple strong antibiotics.  One of them being the one that caused his hearing loss. 

I'll post more when I can actually think straight....

I dont know why it was decided for this poor boy to go under the knife again anyway, while he was doing so well....

I will be praying for HIM.

Aw Crystal, this isn't what we wanted to read. Poor Skyler, he deserves to catch a break for once. I'm so sorry to hear how things have turned out. I think it was a good decision to try a port, just for the chance at giving Skyler an opportunity to be a "normal" kid and swim and bathe. It's terrible that it got infected so soon.

Wishing him much strength to pull through the infection quickly so you can both get home.

Love Erin & Nolan

For whoever left that comment above if childhood cancer was your world everyday than you would understand why the decision was made. Also if you were to hear the screams of complete pain, which I have a couple times, every 4 days I might add you would try everything to have that not be apart of his life anymore. Also Im sure Crystal reads these comments for encouragment not for someone to so rudely point out their opinions when they dont get to see the whole picture.

As for me I will be praying for BOTH of you Crystal.
