Our pediatrician called this afternoon on Jade and the tests came back. There are three concerns, some bone irregularities on her hands and feet, a low white blood count, and the 2 month fever. Separate they can all be explained and discounted, but together it needs to be looked into. He felt it necessary to get in touch with our oncologist because he doesn't know what to make of it all. Leukemia is in the running for a possibility. Tomorrow we should hear more from them, tonight we are praying like crazy that it is a coincidence and she has some weird viral thing that is making her counts low and a long fever and she happens to have some bone irregularities (that CAN be normal). The fact that Brinley also had a bone "irregularity" right before her diagnosis is making this very hard to discount. She will most likely get a bone density scan tomorrow, but the pediatrician did not want to get into it too much so I don't really know what that will tell. He said the oncologist will be talking to the radiologist in the morning and someone will be calling us. I hope it will happen early, I know Dr. Lemons is a very busy man, he is the head oncologist and is wonderful, but I can't wait and not know for much longer. This is insane, I cannot fathom the possibility.

Oh my gosh!!! I'm so, SO sorry that you have to worry about your Jade.

I'm praying like crazy that it is a fluke and it will work itself out.

Hugs

It's going to be a long night. Many prayers will be offered, and we will all hope for the best.

Is this really happening? It seems surreal.

Love,
Mom

I don't know what to say except that you and your family will be in my prayers and i wish i could take your worry and pain away even for a little bit.

The Book of Job is what comes to my mind when i think of your strength and your devotion to the man upstairs. I know it feels like you are alone, but please know in your heart that there are lots of people praying and thinking about you, Brinley, Jade, Taylor, and David.

You are an inspiration, Kristin.
