We need some prayers and positive thoughts our way if you are so inclined. We have been at our local children's hospital today with our granddaughter Miss R. She has been sick for a week and because she got so pale during Easter festivities, they took her in for a blood test.
Her hemoglobin count was so low, they were advised to go directly to emergency room. They have done tests all day and most likely she will undergo a blood transfusion tomorrow. They are hopeful they can rule out leukemia (!!!) but right now we are just in a waiting game.
The best case scenario is that some sort of virus caused the drop and her body is still capable of creating new cells. Of course we are all scared as the doctors are quite concerned. She is not in any pain and is smiling and eating (good sign!), although you can imagine putting an IV in a two-year-old.
Miss CC was absolutely wonderful with her putting her arm around her and taking care of her. This is major as hospitals are notoriously too loud and too many people for her to be able to relax. I was incredibly proud of her.
It was hard to see such a little one so pale and hooked up to machines. Her parents are both with her and were able to take off work today and as many days as needed going forward and are staying in room with her. They seem to be handling everything with strength. What else can you do?
Mr. C leaves tomorrow for NY so I will go back to hospital tomorrow while CC is in school.
A very hard day here, folks.
