On Thursday, December 14th Wyatt had an appointment with his pediatrician due to a mild fever of 99.5 that had been present for a few days. Aside from the fever and being a little less active than normal, there were no other visible signs of illness. The pediatrician performed a blood test and this visit quickly turned into a trip to Dell Children's Hospital in Austin, TX where his parents were told that Wyatt had T-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, also known as ALL. Wyatt was admitted to ICU due to very high white blood cell and potassium counts. A normal white blood cell range is 5,000 to 10,000 and upon being submitted to ICU his white blood count was 327,000.
Wyatt had a busy weekend in ICU. During this time the doctors were able to lower his white blood cell count taking it down to 10,200 as of Sunday night. On Friday while in ICU, Wyatt had surgery to get a chemo port as well as a bone marrow sample. Wyatt remained in ICU until Sunday morning when he was released to the Oncology floor where he will continue to stay more treatment. The doctors have been very pleased with his progress so far.
