He started running a fever and back in the hospital.
They've done another transfusion and said he will be there at least 2 wks.
Nate has been on a very aggressive chemo regimen and has all the negative side effects.
Poor baby is very ill and an extra prayer for him would be so appreciated.
History: Nate is DSS34 stb stepson. He's 6 yrs old and was diagnosed with leukemia in April.

It's my life now, my choices, my mistakes to make and my victories to celebrate. His choices made me free of liars and betrayers in my life. That is priceless.

Thank-you all ! This is very much appreciated !!

JRC-

How high was the fever?

I don't exactly but it came on quickly and spiked.
luckily they live 25 miles from his hospital, Lucile Packard Children's/Stanford University Hospital. Many of the families there have to travel long distance so very blessed to have the best in our area.

Today's update: He's back smiling and eating soft foods. He even watched a movie so feeling better and fever is down.

This shit is so scary, especially when the Dr couldn't say he would OK when he was admitted. I'm thankful the hospital doesn't give hope unless they feel there is hope, it's life and death there everyday for the kids. So much tension and fear in the parent's faces. The hospital staff is beyond great but you never think it could be one of your own struggling for their life.
He's better for now.

Prayers for Nate. It's so worrying when healthy children are running a fever. It must be mind-bogglingly terrorizing in a sick child. I think his mummy needs prayers and mojo, too.
