Zoe: Testing Times

Sonny's last bright moment was well over a week ago, enjoying a visit from his mate Reuben... since then he's not been right at all. I'm not sure if I'll be able to pull off the grateful, thank you for trying to fix my kid smile if I hear the word 'mystery' one more time. The weeny chink of light today following ward round is that they think he still does have Tcell Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and not Hodgkins Lymphoma following the results of his CT scan yesterday which shows the mass has stayed the same. Before they can start chemotherapy again they need to find out what is causing the temperatures so he's having more ultrasound today and an endoscopy on Monday to check that he doesn't have an infection in his bowel as his tummy still isn't working properly. In the meantime the Infectious Diseases team have 'gone fishing' for all things horrible but they won't have any results for at least a week. The whole thing is unbelievably frustrating and really rubbish for Sonny, especially as one of the reasons for the high temperatures could be the revolting cocktail of medicines he is now on trying to knock out the cause of the temps in the first place - grrrrrrrrrrr. We just want someone to say when he'll feel better.

In the meantime I have been sent home for sneezing... so I'm now juicing like a mentalist so they let me back in.
