Wednesday Night March 21st Update

It's 11:30 p.m., Wednesday night. We're almost at the halfway point for Chemo Round 2. We just received a call from someone at the hosptial to break the news that the person in the bed next to Liam when he was "in patient" has the flu. This means he was exosed to flu germs. Liam will be swabbed tomorrow to be tested for flu germs in his body, but we won't have the results for five days. So, as a preventative measure, he's going to be treated as if he has the flu and will be in isolation tomorrow when we arrive at the Day Hospital. How am I going to explain why we can't leave the room to Liam, the patient who hates to be in his room and wants nothing more than to be in his little red wagon exploring the Day Hospital? And now we sit and wait and hope and pray he doesn't get the flu.
