I am just asking for everyone's thoughts and prayers for our family in the coming months. We just found out tonight that our nephew has been diagnosed with T-Cell Leukemia. It began with what Doctors thought was just basic pneumonia. They are going to give him some powerful steroids and if that doesn't help enough, or any, they will start him on Chemo. It just breaks my heart for him... He is so young... So much life ahead of him. He is currently at Cook's Children's Hospital for his treatments.
Jym's little cousin, born at 24 weeks gestation, is also at Cook's Children's Hospital for heart surgery. When he was born, he had a small hole in his heart and the steroids they gave him to help it close up on it's own didn't help. He has to have surgery to go in and close this small hole up. This could be a risky procedure for him, seeing as how he is SO TINY.
And... Another of Jym's cousins is in San Antonio having surgery on his back. He had the first of 2 or 3 surgeries today, lasting from 8-ish this morning to around 6-ish tonight. He is expected to be fine, but with surgery matters it never hurts to have a little prayer and lots of support on your side.
I just wanted to post this to ask you all to PLEASE keep our family in your thoughts and prayers while we are all going through this trying time. Thank-you all... Hope all is great elsewhere!
