Family Time

Yesterday all four of us hung out here at the hospital together.  We were able to check Logan out to walk outside for a little bit and enjoy the fresh air.  He has to wear a mask any time he leaves the oncology floor to protect him from sick people in the hallways.  This photo was taken while we waited for the elevator.

Once we made it outside, we headed to the small playground in front of the hospital.  We made up silly games and challenged each other to "walk up the stairs with two feet together", "do a no jump pull-up", and more.  We had a wonderful family day and made the most of our time together.  When we got back inside, I noticed that Logan had some petechiae (bleeding under the skin).  They did an early CBC and discovered he was very low on Platelets so they gave him a transfusion overnight.  They are also starting him on Cipro (an antibiotic) as a precaution against infection because his blood chemistry also showed that he is very low on white blood cells and is now officially immunocompromised.  Until this counts recover, we are on infection watch and Logan will not be allowed off the oncology floor.  This makes yesterday's family day at the park all the sweeter.
