Friday morning (2/28/2020) I took Chris to the ER believing he had the flu. When his white blood count came back extremely high, we were transferred to OLOL Children’s Hospital. There it was confirmed that Chris has Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. (ALL). He will be going to St. Jude Hospital in Memphis for more testing and treatment. We have been told we will be there about 4 to 6 weeks. I will try to post updates on a regular basis.

Update: He will not be released today. They are going to have do surgery to move the line back down into place. It migrated up in such a way that it can receive fluids but will not allow blood draws. I’m not sure if they can get him on the schedule today or if it will be tomorrow. One day at a time.
