Emmett

Emmett was 14 months old when he was diagnosed with ALL B cell on October 25th 2012.  He had been sick with a fever the week before and had some extra bruising (but he was learning to walk so we didn’t think anything about it). He also had a petechia rash.  We went by ambulance to Blank and spent 2 days in the PICU and started treatment the next day.  His first month was complicated by an infection in his picc line and spent the first month in the hospital.  He has had lots of short stays in the hospital for viruses and a longer one when he had the shingles in May 2013.  He is now on maintenance and mostly full of energy.  Emmett is our youngest, and we have an older son, who is a wonderful big brother, named Nolan.
