After what I thought was a stomach bug that I brought home from work. She was still not getting better a week later. Took her to acute care there they did a strep test and covid test which were both negative. Told it was a virus. After another week and she was not getting any better. My husband took her to the clinic on March 16, 20/1. They ran tests. While they were at the clinic we were texting all of a sudden I got a phone call from his number. Will never for get when I answered the phone. “Stop what you are doing and walk away”. It was the Dr. that was the start of a whirlwind of all kind of things. We headed to Avera Queen of peace ER for a little bit for IV fluids and antibiotics. Then an ambulance ride to Sanford Children’s (The Castle). She was diagnosis with Pre B Cell Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL). ALL is a fast-growing cancer of lymphocyte-forming cells called lymphoblasts.
