Unscheduled Visit

Want to post a quick note on here (it's 3:30 a.m. on Wednesday). Scott was really lethargic all day Tuesday, and kept wanting to sleep. In the evening, he wanted to go to bed about 8:30 which is very out of the ordinary these days. We were noticing him being very pale, and his skin wouldn't blanch when pressed with a finger. This made us worry about him being severely anemic, so Steph called the doctors.

They wanted us to bring him in for bloodwork in the ER, so we headed out just after 10 p.m. His blood work came back low, but not abnormaly low. The ER doc contacted Dr. Rossbach, and he wanted to admit him. Doc Rossbach stated to the ER doctor that he "knew Scott and Scott wasn't one to complain", so he wanted him observed, especially since it was about 2 a.m.

So now Derry and I are just back home and Scott and Stephanie are checked into St. Joseph's. We'll know more after he's had morning bloodwork and been visited by the oncologist. It most likely is nothing of worry, but we are obviously concerned.

Scott has been checked in to room 228.

Oh dear. Keep us posted. But thank goodness you and Steph are so very observant to his outward signs to know when something is not quite as it should be.

Love you all,
