Sam

Sam came home from school complaining of a stomachache Wednesday afternoon (March 12). By Friday, his condition hadn’t improved and we went to the doctor. Sam’s CBC was normal, and the doctor thought he was merely constipated. Sam continued to decline over the weekend and we returned to the doctor Monday morning. By then, his WBC was 46K and Sam was referred to Blank for an abdominal CT. The CT showed swollen lymph nodes throughout his abdomen. He was diagnosed with T-Cell ALL that day and started chemo Tuesday afternoon.
