Default Not good news

David is in the hospital right now receiving an IVIG transfusion (Intra Venous Immune Globulin). The Dostors seem to think he has Evans Syndrome but they are not 100% sure.
I just glanced at the information my wife printed out regarding Evans Syndrome...it is not leuemia but it sure isn't a walk in the park either. Treatment for it varies but there is no magic bullet identified that will cure it.
So I am back to asking for your prayers, he is one sick little boy.
On th lighter side...
They gave him some 'happy juice' when they started the 9+ hour transfusion, he tried talking to Grammy, she was laughing at his attempts to carry on a conversation.
God willing and the creek don't rise, I am hoping he will be OK.
Thanks again to everyone.
Here is a picture of David holding Callie.

Prayers still coming David's way. What a beautiful picture of both David and Callie. I would print and frame that one.

You could give a copy to David, something to give him pleasure while he is feeling so poorly.

I haven't ever heard of Evans Syndrome, guess I will go do some reading.

C'mon and fight David, you can do it!

Rose just got a text from Davids mom, David's thru the transfusion OK; he has real good color and seems to be doing good. They are going to do more blood work to check the results. The Doctors are going to do more tests to make certain it is Evans Syndrome; they are still not sure.
I will keep everyone posted.
I haven't forgotten about Mistletoe but right now we're a bit overwhelmed; I am going to try and see about her over the weekend and try to bring her home if I'm able.
