Reincarnated As A Mother

Thank Heavens I Didn't Totally Unpack!

While it's been nice to get all those congratulatory emails for getting home...
I'm about to rain on your parade and my parade and of course, Kean's parade.
We are back.
Same hospital.
Same room.
Same food, bed, tv, phone etc.
The home health nurse came this morning and when we took his pajamas off
to weigh the boy, his arm up around his shoulder was slightly swollen and very mottled.
A call to MSTI (cancer center) told us to come in immediately-- they would be admitting us.

On the bright side, we did both get to sleep in our own beds (without constant interruptions).
Doctor Meeker is quite sure it is a blood clot.
We are waiting for an ultrasound to come confirm his suspicions.
If that's the case, they'll take out his PIC line and start him on some blood thinning shots.
Oh, the fun in here continues.
If all goes well, though, we should get out of here in a day.

Oh I am so sorry! I am praying for you and for Kean. Hope you get to go home soon.
