In 4 hours how my world changed for ever! Lock Rss

Hi guys just wanted to share with you all how my world change for ever on the 26th of Febuary 2012.

My beautiful baby boy was born on the 26th of October 2011. Delivered by c section- healthy with no complication. About three weeks later he got a cold/flu that he could seem to shake off.(the weather was all over the place cold one day 30 degrees the following day) one day he would be good the next we would have a slight running nose, then good again. About a week later he developed these two lumps on top of his head so I took him my local gp- he put it down to a lipoma cyst. I still didn't feel right about it so I took him the following day to my children's hospital. There I waited for 4 hours and had him checked all over ( including body check)by two senior doctor and they said no to worry about it and if it had not gone in three weeks to come back. I went home still with an uncertain feeling in my stomach but I was thing three docs have checked him and they have all said it was ok. The following day he was slept most of the day only waking around ever 5 hours and having about 20mls of milk and falling asleep again. Tad following morning I took him back to the children hospital where I checked in at 1.30pm the did a blood test and urine test and at 5.30pm they come to the concision my 4 month old had acute myloide leukemia. His white blood cells was over 300 ( they reckon over 100 iis really bad).My world changed for ever. His spleen was massive too also his kidneys. Two weeks on he has had his first batch of chemo and seems to be handling it ok. We will get the results of this round in about three weeks. I'm writing this post as kind of healing process, I have never cried so much in my life but I have to be strong for my two other boys. I'm stuck in hospital for the next six months will my little brave man go through this long hard so. All I want to say is trust you motherly gut feeling. Because they told me that if I had left a few more days he would no longer be with us. And when you have a spare minutes please say a little prayer fort little man. His been more in this last week than most people would go through in there life time. thankyou for reading my post written as I lay awake in hospital ( my new home for the next 6 months ) sad sad
