1.) Somebody I’m praying for….
Thanks MamaKatfor the assignment…And I chose to accept it!!!!
His name is Junior, at least to all of us close to him. He is a brilliant 5 year old little boy. His has an amazing supermom that I am lucky to have as a cousin. He has been ill for almost 3 months on and off and just doesn’t seem to be getting better. The doctors are perplexed with his signs and symptoms and don’t seem to be putting the big picture together until Tuesday his fever spiked and his white blood cells spiked to very high numbers. He was sent to the hospital to be admitted.
This is all the more terrifying because a few years ago my cousin’s daughter was diagnosed with a brain tumor that originated from her ear. It ended up (after complete removal this last year being a benign tumor called a Schwannoma). They said that this did not necessarily mean that her other child would have the same thing, but they did testing back then to rule any out. His testing came back negative!
Tuesday, my cousin took her son to the doctor and there they advised her that they wanted to admit him and rule out a tumor (once again) or a blood condition like Leukemia….
His CT scan was done immediately, which came back negative for any tumors which is such a blessing. Also his testing for Leukemia was negative!!!! Yeah, but still Junior was sick.
Today, the doctor told her that they thought he had an autoimmune disease. They are going to refer him to an infectious disease doctor for follow up.
I am praying for his recovery and praying for the doctor’ ability to discover what is attacking his young body.
