all signs lead to leukemia

My 2 year old has swollen lymph nodes all over his body (behind ears, jaw line, neck, under armpits, groin, and behind knees) low white blood cell count, and bruising all over his body. When you Google those 3 symptoms, all the results are about leukemia. We go to the hematologist (blood dr) today at 3:30 and im scared shitless. The hematologist and oncologist (cancer) offices are together since those two go hand in hand. I just want to run away as fast as I can. Its been a very long and stressful week and I pray it ends up not as bad as I fear.

I was in the hospital for a week at age 4 with these same symptoms.  They thought I had leukemia, but it turned out to be an allergy.  It happened again when I was a teenager and had mono.  Lymph nodes around my eyes swelled so big I couldn't even see.

Some people's bodies react that way to invasion.  Don't worry until you get a diagnosis.

First things first, stay off google. That can make the most common cold look terrible. I can imagine how nervous you are right now. I hope the results are something else. Keep updated!
