In the hospital

Amaey had a fever on sat around 8pm and I took him to ER. We got admitted that night and are sill in the hospital. Our doctors had warned us about this. His last round of chemo was really strong and that changed all the numbers in his body.

Since he had a bad cough they were worried about pneumonia but a chest xray rulled that out. They ran a bunch of tests on him to rule out all other infections and luckily all came back negative. I just came back from the hospital and he is looking really good. No fever since yesterdy so that is a good sign.

Once his counts are back up they will let us go home again. The main doctor that has been assigned to Amaey's case looked at me and said... hey we haven't seen you here since his treatment so you are doing really well. Frankly this is routine for his treatment for kids to end up with infections and fevers and then be admitted.

The fact that we are so close to the hospital, have such a good team of doctors and Amaey is really chugging along well is a good sign.

Mona and Anokhi,
Congratulations on completing the walk. It is just scary when I go to the hospital and see how many kids are affected with cancer.
Any money we all can raise for research that can help us understand the cause will be a good starting point towards finding a cure.

Thank you much.
