First hospital admission since arrival home to Australia

We had a bit of a scare Thursday night. Dylan had chest pain so I took him to the emergency room. They thought he may have had a blood clot but then we noticed he was yellow. Then of course the fear that the cancer had progressed into his liver became a very real concern. He was admitted and the next day a liver ultrasound was done, and thankfully it turns out that he has a stone in his bile duct. Hospitalized and on antibiotics with surgery to remove the stone scheduled Tuesday. They said it may have been caused by past chemo or calcium leaking from the bones where the cancer is. Today is Monday and we are preparing for another liver ultrasound. I will update more when I get home to real Internet access and my computer.
