Domestic Bliss Report

Motherhood is hard work. If we don't stick together, we'll all fall apart.

Prayer request

Our neighbor up the street, Greg, has always been a good guy. He's praised my clothesline, pets our dog, and jokes with the kids. On our walk around the block today, the kids were jumping on the discarded wheelchair ramp in front of his house. He got it from his next-door neighbor and is trying to use it to repair his driveway. He happened to come home while we were there.

He asked how old the kids are, specifically The Boy. "My grandson is four, too," he said. "He was having a rough time of it, bruising really easily and generally not feeling well. They took him in to the doctor's who directed them right to the hospital. They think he has leukemia." It might be anemia, he said, but his white count was extremely low.

Mom works as a radiologist at one of the bigger hospitals in the area (Beaumont, if that means anything to you), so his health care is covered. They tried to catheterize him so he wouldn't bruise his feet walking to the bathroom, but his dad is staying to carry him each time he needs to go.

I didn't catch the little guy's name, but will update with it when I get it. Thanks.

Oh goodness--poor little guy! I will add Greg's grandson to my prayers as well.

Definitely will pray.

Royal Oak Beaumont or Troy Beaumont? R.O. is one of the best hospitals in the state, IMHO, so if that's where he is he's in fantastic hands.
