Ok so yesterday didn't go at all like I thought it would. I thought we would go to the doc she would say it's a cyst, let's drain it and you will be on your way. Nope.

We got to the doc and she took one look at it and its placement and immediatly sent us to the ER. I stopped on the way there to pick up Mark and grab a bag just in case. We got there and we had a doc come in and us it's probably a cyst, no big deal etc.. Then he looks at it and was surprised and said oh, we will need more tests.

So he got an ultrasound, that didn't help, what it did show was blood flow to the area which is unusual. They they wanted a X-ray, so we did that. All that showed was that his lungs were clear.

After not being able to tell anything they decided to admit him. Lots of doctors came in and poked him, touched the mass, all gave their opinions on what it is. All decided that a CT scan is needed to be able to see exactly what it is. Because of his age they need to have a PICU doctor there in case, since he has to be sedated.

So today at 1am he will have the scan and we will go from there. Zack has an IV in and is getting fluids. He didn't sleep well last night due to rolling around on his line, it would always set the alarm off and the nurse would have to come in and fix it. I am about to wake him up to have his last bottle until after the CT scan.

The mass did get a little bigger from last night, so we are hoping and praying that its nothing serious. We will have a specialist come in today to look at it and go from there as well.

Here are a few pics from last night
