Tuesday, Feb. 20, Aiden came home from Day Care with a little fever. Mom noticed some swollen lymph nodes in Aiden's neck. She thought he may have tonsillitis. She made an appointment with his Doctor for the following day, Feb. 21. The Doctor took a CBC test and he said he thought his machine was broken so asked Gena to take Aiden over to the hospital to have the blood test run. The hospital re took the test. The hospital called Gena again before she even got home and asked them to come back. They needed to redo the CBC test again. Aiden's doctor called about 8 p.m. Feb. 21 and told them to take Aiden to Kosair hospital immediately. He thought Aiden had luekemia. Kosair did Aiden's CBC again. His # was so high (232,000) normal is 10-15,000. Around 4:00 a.m, it was confirmed (High Risk) Acute L. Leukemia. Read the journal for what follows next! One moment can change your life forever!

Prayers answered

Thank you Jesus for Great test results. Aiden's biopsy came back as a benign tumor.  This is great news considering what we could have been facing. There are still some pending results from Pathology , but on the oncology side....it could not have been any better. Please continue to pray for favorable news on those pending test. Also, there is frustration on the part of we still have no idea why Aiden was running such extreme fevers for so long.Please pray that can can resolve this get him back on the road to good health.
 Please pray for Aiden as he is still in a lot of pain and will take at least a couple of week to heal from this surgery. This is a roller coaster ride that we would all choose not to ride.The days are long and the nights even longer for Jason and Gena as they are always in search for answers and just want a healthy child who can enjoy the pleasures of life. Let just say anyone who has to tolerate sleeping and living in those quarters and every meal fast food....well they could use pray for a quick resolve so they can all be in the comforts of home.I'm sure Cedar Knoll misses them......

Praising God right now! There was a time when Alicia had fever and they could not find why. It turned out to be an ingrown toenail. She had to have surgery because her counts were so low. Normally would've been a simple outpatient procedure. It will show up why soon enough
