This Week in Our New Normal - Back in the Hospital



Hello all.  I’m linking up with the Caffeinated Book Reviewer for Sunday Post

If you’ve been here for awhile you know that my 10 year old son was diagnosed with Leukemia about a month ago which ended up with us moving to Memphis TN while he is receiving treatment at St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  It’s been a crazy month and just to keep us on our toes Friday night ended with him being readmitted to the hospital.  Despite feeling fine all Friday I noticed he was a bit warm before bed and sure enough he had a fever. And when you have Leukemia a fever means you go to the hospital for a minimum of 48 hours.  

Everything is fine - all tests show nothing is wrong other then really low numbers but the numbers are expected to be really low because of treatment.  But I’d rather be safe then sorry a thousand times over.  Right now we are playing Animal Crossing and searching for a new villager which is keeping him pretty entertained thankfully.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we will be out of here this afternoon.

Hope everyone has a great week!

  3. Yes certainly better to be cautious on health matters. He's being so brave and you must be so proud of him.

  4. Thinking of you Katherine. Yes, rather safe than sorry. I've been thinking of books for you to read as well! Have you read A lady's guide to mischief and mayhem? I haven't, but it does seem right up our alley and I know it was on special at Amazon this week.

    Hope you will have a good and blessed week. Here's my The Sunday Post

  6. Thank goodness for all those games that keep our youngsters engrossed at times when we'd rather they were doing other things - because there are also occasions when they are GOLDEN. I hope your son's temperature soon comes down and you can return to your new normal. Thinking of you, as ever...
