Thank you for visiting and for your concern. We are hoping to update friends and family as we get more information about Jake's condition. We will be sure to post here as new information becomes available so if there are no new posts we are still waiting to hear more from tests and doctors.
At the end of March Jake had severe pain in his abdomen. He sought help thinking it was an ulcer or kidney stones but after an ultrasound a mass was found inside his spleen. At the same time Jake began getting prolonged high fevers, night sweats and a myriad of other symptoms. He was referred to an oncologist and while waiting for that appointment ended up in the hospital for four days with sepsis and a confirmed blood bacterial infection. He was put on medication that cleared the bacterial infection and doctors were hopeful that this would explain the mass. However after recent tests the doctors do not believe the two are related.
