After a few weeks of fatigue and emotionality, Ethan visited the pediatrician who did a quick finger prick. The Hematocrit came back immediately and very low, and he was admitted that afternoon to Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC). Within a couple of hours, Ethan was diagnosed with Leukemia, and two days later, he received a formal diagnosis of B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). Chemotherapy was started immediately, and we are on a 3 1/2 year road to recovery. I hope this blog can serve as window to his journey.
