Well, how quickly things change.
For the first time in months, Vampboy is in the hospital with an infection. This followed two days of challenging blood product transfusions, and a bleeding episode that left him looking as though he’d been shot in the chest. On top of this, VB has been indicating that his tummy hurts since yesterday, and by today it was clear that the area around his Mic-key button was infected. This is a common thing, sadly — in fact, he had a similar reaction when his initial tube was put in back in October. Unfortunately, because it’s happening while his immune counts are low, it’s back to Chez Healing for a few days.
Complicating things this time around is that Vampmommy has a cold — so the hospital is the last place that she should be. So, after some schedule wrangling and work off-loading, here I am.
Peachy. September (or October…Or….) won’t come soon enough.
