After a routine Dr. visit for feeling over tired and simply run down, it was realized that Mom's blood levels were rock bottom.  A further look a few days later revealed that blood platelet production had almost ceased and the word Leukemia surfaced.  After a bone marrow biopsy on Thursday morning, June 22, 2017, by Thursday evening her diagnosis was revealed.  I don't think anything can ever prepare you for one of those dreaded phone calls.  It's truly everyone's nightmare.  Mom was diagnosed with a rare form of Acute Leukemia and on Friday, June 23, 2017...she was hospitalized and WE started OUR fight! Welcome to our CaringBridge website.
