wADmM5mNLtOv064mhMCS_CYE3Bc Just Dorothy: Lately...


Lately things have just been rather suckish around here.  It started with the leak slash pipes slash carpet cleaning fiasco slash concrete cutting contractors slash big money.  And now we have the sick kid.  Only we don't know what kind of sick kid we have.  He has a very low white blood cell count.  And it could mean any number of things.  But we do know that it is NOT mono.  It might be a virus that he had and it caused his count to fall and we might never figure out what it was.  Or it might be leukemia.  Or it might not be leukemia.  So...we wait some more.  It's been a tortureous week of waiting already. 

It's safe to say that he's feeling better.  He was beating on his little brother last night.  Still doesn't have much of an appetite and has lost 13 pounds in 3 weeks or so.  But he did eat a whole Subway sandwich today.  So we are hoping, wishing, praying, waiting. 

In the meantime we've had some great waiting room conversations.  And by we I mean Ryan and Steve.  They talk about the possibility of zombies taking over the planet.  They even get the doctor in on the conversation.  It's pathetic and hilarious at the same time.  They talk about it like it could actually happen, both of them totally convinced.  Cracks me up.

    What was the outcome here? My son was thrown into exactly the same boat just a few minutes ago.

    The outcome on my kiddo was positive in that it was not leukemia. We never did find out what it was though, there was no answer. I sincerely hope your son is ok, too. It's horrible to wait for those kinds of answers.
