Today’s Great Post was written by Dawn from Slop Swap. Although you may have heard the name of this disease, you have no idea of its impact.:
Your heart breaks when your child is sick. Even when they just have a runny nose. But when it’s something worse and you don’t know if they’ll get better, how do you cope? How do you help them cope?
When your local doctor sends you to the Children’s Hospital, you fear the worst. Now it’s not just a runny nose, a virus or something that an antibiotic can make better. We’re facing the unknown. What will they find…cancer? Will she be OK? Of course all of these questions went through our head. She’s our baby.
My daughter’s journey started 4 years ago right around her 3rd birthday. She had been running high fevers and high white blood count. But the local doctor couldn’t find anything to explain it. So we were sent to the Children’s Hospital an hour and a half away. We saw every specialist in the hospital and they did every test under the sun, poking and prodding but came up empty handed. No cancer diagnosis so we thanked God for that!
