Another Saturday...

Today has been full of all sorts of "fun" stuff!! not really "fun", but definitely not a boring day. Yesterday, as soon as I left the hospital (he always causes drama when I leave), Dylan got a high grade fever and the cultures were taken and the docs decided to take a CT Scan of his tummy and lower body to see if they could find out what was causing the fevers. The CT Scan was reviewed this morning and the doctors did not see anything that looked out of the ordinary. They thought he may have been getting a fungal infection, but they cannot find any evidence of one. We think Dylan just likes to cause drama :) He had to get both platelets and red blood cells today, along with his usual antibiotics. He seems to feel a lot better with more energy when he gets his red blood--also the nurses say he is getting his "tan". If only I could get a tan that way :) We also moved rooms today. There was an opening in a bigger room with a larger bathroom, better air conditioning and a fridge twice the size of ours!! YAY!! I did not hesitate when they asked. We are now nestled into the new room--Room 36 for those of you who are visiting--and we like it a lot!! Daddy is now cuddling with Dylan and I am just relaxing. Let's pray for an uneventful night. Tomorrow Erik and I are going to the Diamondbacks game with Hopekids. They are an organization that brings families together who are going through cancer and other illnesses with their children. We are excited to meet some other families who are going through or have gone through the same kind of situation. I have already been in touch with one family who's son was diagnosed with MLL (the other kind of leukemia) at 8 weeks old, the same time Dylan was!! He went through chemo and also received a bone marrow transplant. He is now 13 months old!!! PRAISE GOD!! It was so encouraging to hear his story!! I can not wait to meet him and his family! We are so grateful for the wonderful people that God is has put in our path.
