2 weeks later my sister takes him to the doctor. Doctor said it was a deep bruise and they take time.
Earlier this week, (week after going to the doctor) she took him back. Something nagging her that something was seriously wrong. Doctor ordered a blood test and before she got home..the doctor called and said turn around and head straight to the hospital..his platelets were incredibly low.
They did another blood test and it looked like leukemia..
Yesterday they did a bone marrow aspiration.
This morning results are in. My nephew has leukemia. They are waiting for the final report which will take a few days to determine type but preliminary says its AML. Possibly M3 maybe M5.
I am in the air force and can't be there for her or her husband..and as her sister I have this ocerwheliming desire to be there with her.
Its really pulling at my heart and everything in me aches to be there, hold her hand, hug her and just love on my sweet nephew.
If you pray, pray. For him..for my sister and her dh and for me to get emergency leave approved.
