Leukemia…?

I knew what Leukemia was. I don’t know why, but I still googled it. In my super delusional hopes that maybe what it actually is changed. Like the definition could change. But no… it’s still cancer.

Leukemia is a type of blood cancer that begins in the bone marrow.

There’s a higher risk of childhood Leukemia in children that were born with down syndrome.

Today Ariana had blood work done to check her white blood cell count.

It is absolutely terrifying to think that Ariana could have cancer and she could possibly have to go through chemotherapy

Today on one of those parent pages on Facebook I saw a picture of a 9 month old beautiful baby girl.. Her mother was asking for prayers, and advice.. Her baby was just diagnosed with Leukemia. I couldn’t help and think if we will be there one day.. In her shoes asking for prayers, praying myself.. For a healing.. A healing from cancer..?? Until we get her blood work back I know I won’t be able to do much.. The thought consumes me. It breaks my heart, and hurts my soul that this is even a possibility.

All I want so bad is to hear the words “Everything looks great, no Leukemia here” and walk out of that doctors office relived & feeling a little silly for worrying so much….

Ariana’s test results come back in two dreadfully long weeks.IMG_9676
