January 24th we found out that our 11 year old daughter Makayla has T-cell leukemia. This was out of the blue as we had no idea how sick she was. We had gotten some blood work done because we thought she might have mono, she had just been pretty tired over a few weeks. But a call from her doctor prompted a trip to Devos. We spent 12 days, the first few days in the ICU. Our healthy, independent, and sometimes serious - sometimes silly girl is now very sick. This is our journey.
