At the end of August, Eleanor Leonard was feeling pain in her back and stomach. What we thought was a pulled muscle turned out to be cancer of the liver and lungs. She started chemotherapy on Friday September 7 - that process will take place every Friday and Saturday for three months. It is most likely that she will need a liver transplant. But we'll get there when we get there. Meanwhile, we are focused on the process in front of us day by day.
We were able to leave the hospital on Sunday September 23 and bring Eleanor home.
We have excellent doctors and nurses at Lurie Children's Hospital. Thanks to everyone who has reached out through text and social media. We are blessed to have you all in our lives. #TeamNora
