Hospital Trip

Robert was in the hospital Friday night.  He has been having recurring nose bleeds for a couple months, increasing in frequency and severity.  Now they are often accompanied by large blood clots.  The pulmonologist has referred us to a ENT doctor, but after a couple days of bad bleeding we hit Children's ER last night.  The on-call ENT scoped the nasal passages and saw mass irritation, but nothing particular that could be cauterized or "fixed".  That being said, they also confirmed that there is no cause for immediate concern. So we are going to follow up and keep working on a solution.  It's looking like the cause could likely just be a cumulative result of 3 years+ of daily chemotherapy.
