Another day, another doctor.

Ethan saw the ENT today. I love this doctor! He is the one that removed my salivary gland a couple of years ago.
Anyway, he looked at Ethan's nose and noticed some scabbed blood vessels. Since we haven't seen the hematologist yet for more testing on his possible blood clotting disorder, he suggests we keep Ethan's nose moist and run a humidifier in his room. He does think that at least one side of his nose will need to eventually be cauterized but doesn't want to do that until we have more testing done. Cauterizing it, while having a clotting disorder, could make it ten times worse. So for now, we will stick with what we are doing and if he has any more bloody noses that bleed for more than 5 minutes, I am to call him.
We see the hematologist next Friday.
