Mr. Snuffleupagus

A normal experience like catchng a cold takes on much more significance when the patient has no immune system.  Tyler has been suffering for a little more than a week, but we don't know when he will be in better shape.  It's gotten to the point where it is very hard for him to swallow (sound familiar?) because his throat is swollen and tender.  He can't talk much and is congested in both head and chest.

He was already on whatever drugs they can give him to fight infections, so we are just hoping that he doesn't break the 101 degree mark and have to get admitted to the hospital.  He did get a chest x-ray on Friday, and they haven't dragged him off to UW yet.

I just wish that I could do something to help.  He's pretty miserable.
