Andrew has recently been diagnosed with Leukemia. This diagnosis absolutely blindsided us all. He was relaxing in Deep Creek after an Easter egg hunt, and we got the call that we needed to go to the Johns Hopkins Pediatric ER right away. His blood work from having a prolonged fever revealed concerning platelet levels. We dropped everything (literally-we were in the middle of grouting our shower!) and drove to Johns Hopkins. We went from relaxing in Deep Creek to a preliminary diagnosis of Leukemia to a absolute diagnosis with a chemo schedule. Just. Like. That. Andrew is a fighter and will beat this. I have no doubt about it.
