Cheeky went to the doctor Monday 7/23 for what seemed like an ear infection, as he was really grouchy and his ears had been leaking for a few days. The pediatrician noticed he had many bruises, and the bruises were hard lumps. When she tried to clean the discharge from his ears, it was a large blood clot. Bloodwork showed insanely high white blood cells, and she sent us to ER, where they confirmed leukemia.
So here we are at Yale Pediatric Intensive Care. More information to come.
