Joshua was a very happy and playful 5 year old boy until one day he started having fevers. The doctors found that he had strep. He was started on antibiotics. One week later he was still having fevers. 9/11/12 Joshua was taken into the hospital at Allegiance Health and they did an x-ray to look at his lungs. They found Joshua to have an enlarged heart. He was then transported by ambulance from Jackson to Ann Arbor's U of M. Joshua had fluid around his heart and was found to be very anemic. They admitted him into the C.S. Mott Children's Hospital . They ran a lot of test and a lot of doctors came and talked with his father and I. Within 24hrs of being sent to the hospital, we were told that Joshua has AML Leukemia. Within 48hrs Joshua had surgery to have a port put in his chest. And 72hrs later Joshua started his first of six rounds of chemo. Joshua has been in the hospital for one month now and just celebrated his 6th birthday in here as well. We are praying for Joshua to be able to come home by spring. This has been very hard on our family emotionally and financially.
