Oliver has missed the “back to school” craze by landing up in the hospital with an unknown viral infection! Here’s a bit of an update on my last post.
Monday was one of the hardest days I have had in a long time.
I found myself waiting for the doctor to give me concrete information as to Oliver’s medical condition. Monday was Oliver’s 5th day in the hospital. Every single blood result had come back negative.
Which sounds like great news, but when you have a history of a disease such as Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis – the unknown is pretty scary!
Thankfully by Monday evening, both Oliver’s oncologist (telephonically) and a dermatologist confirmed that Oliver’s rash is not characteristic of the LCH rash. The dermatologist also confirmed that the rash would not clear without the proper LCH treatment which is similar to (or more aggressive than) the cortisone treatment he had in 2015.
Discharged from Hospital
Oliver was discharged from hospital on Tuesday, even though we still have no formal diagnosis. She has asked to see Oli again in next week, so hopefully, we will have the final results shortly!
The main thing is – Oliver is so much better!
Back to School & Going to Grade 1
Oliver went back to school yesterday.
Unfortunately, Oliver was in no mood!
The poor kid is going to have to pose for another photo in next week! But this one will probably remain my favourite!
Oliver had a good first day back at school. We’ve had to do a mountain of work to catch up to what was done in class.
I am really grateful he has a couple of his really good friend with him in class. I am grateful for good health, excellent medical aids and teachers, friends and family who care!
