Please Send Prayers Positve Thoughts, Anything.

When Rhett had his fungal infection in his ear they did a blood draw. They ran a CBC, just because they always run it on him as well as a thyroid check.

The Dr. called me last week on Friday, and told me that Rhett's white blood count was a little on the low side. But nothing to alarm her. She just said that they wanted it re done in a week.

I'll admit, I thought WBC being low was actually good. It meant that he wasn't fighting some type of serious infection.

Never in my wildest dreams did I think it meant the "C" word.

The last 4 days Rhett has been falling down every time I turn around. His poor body is covered with bruises.

BIG bruises. When I called the dr today to get the order for his follow up blood draw I was just mentioning that I thought maybe Rhett was going through a growth spurt because he couldn't stay on his feet.

She paused for a second and asked if I could bring him in.

We still don't have a, I think this is cancer word out of her. But I'm not dumb. I know how to use google.

So we are headed into the Dr and for testing. Please pray that there was a mistake of some kind on that last CBC, and that Rhett's WBC is back in the normal range. This is just not something that I can go through right now.

I would love for those bruises on his knees elbows and head just to be from a growth spurt. It's what I'm counting on. I won't let myself believe anything else.

This has to be one of those, we're just covering our bases type of things. I have debated about blogging about this because I don't want to overeact, but really, I think at this point we could just use all the prayers we can get.

I'll update later.

Sending up extra prayers for you all. Would you like me to ask my sister to put Rhett on their prayer list at her church? I'll assume the answer is yes unless you tell me otherwise. ;) Sending hugs to you, to, my friend. xo

You can't overreact with downs and cancer, I call the doc every time I see red dots on Jax because that is a sign, but for him its his clotting disorder. Luckily one blood test will tell you whether thats what it is or not, so you shouldn't have to wait long. Praying that its not that and he is just a busy little typical boys who gets bruises.

I will definitely pray for Rhett!!

Is he on a blood thinner? I'm just wondering, that can cause bruising (I'm going through that right now...my blood is too thin, so I'm getting more bruises on my legs). I'm just searching for another cause for his bruises!!!
