Back in the Hospital :(

Ben is being admitted to the hospital. He's had a fever for the past several days and his ANCs are down to 60 (this means he doesn't have enough white blood cells to fight off infection, so he needs IV antibiotics). So much for maintenance being Easy Street . . .

Nicole is at the hospital with Ben. I'll leave work early today to get David, then we'll go over for a visit. Ben is actually not unhappy to be in the hospital. He was enjoying some hot chocolate when I spoke with him a little while ago, and he loves the food in the pediatrics wing where he'll be moved shortly. Plus he gets to play with one of the Fun Centers provided by the Starlight-Starbright Foundation, so it's not so terrible.

We'll post an update later.
