Tough night

Tyler's surgery went ok yesterday. Same as usual, just cleaned him out. They will continue to do this every couple of days until the swelling goes down. He has gained 20lbs of water weight in the last 2 weeks. He is also starting to lose his hair from the chemo treatments.

Tyler made his favorite nurse (and ours), Laurie, work hard all night. We think he likes her attention. His fever spiked to 103.5, but she was able to bring it down with the cooling blanket. His blood pressure and heart rate weren't staying put either. Thanks to her hard work his numbers are looking better now. His fever is at 101 now. They are planning to do dialysis today again to help take away some more of that water weight.

We just found that he has a blood clot in his leg too. They will start him on some blood thinners today to help with that.
