Dexter's results are good!
And... this last hospital visit...
It seemed he just missed his nurse friends and so put himself back in hospital.
He had a temperature and was pretty quiet and still, which is not like our little man at all!
He was breathing in a panting style, which was a little scary.
Lenice actually climbed into the back of the car, to better monitor his breathing.
He cried in pain on the trip to Wollongong and cried when getting out of the car - being moved. But, once he was back on the hospital bed, he smiled and started moving around again.
Andrew used the last of his sick leave on this hospital trip!
Dexter has had so many blood tests and his little veins are pretty ruined, so getting blood is not always easy. Having cannulas put into his hands can be very difficult. A few people tried several times, but none of them were successful. Dexter hated this - it hurt him a lot. He scratched Lenice's neck and broke her necklace in his attempt to get through the pain. Our little man's hands are scarred from all the cannulas he's already had in.
No diagnosis was given, no antibiotics were given, no pain relief was given and Dexter was able to bring the temperature down himself, which is great.
The trickiest thing is knowing whether Dexter is allowed panadol, or not. He was never given panadol during his chemotherapy treatments, in case the panadol masked an infection. Thankfully, Dr K said Dexter can be given one dose of panadol now. If that does not help him, it's back to hospital for him.
Dexter did enjoy seeing his nurses again! Cheeky Man!
It was nice seeing him smiling and rolling around again today!
(He's been asleep for two hours... but I just heard that he has woken and thinks its time to get up again! Cheeky!)
