Reason to hope — Tanner!

Okay, we have a little hope that it is not Leukemia… Doctors came in today to say the more tests they run and the more Tanner’s symptoms progress, there are some things going on that are not typical of Leukemia. She still has abnormal white blood cells — a strong indication of leukemia — but her elevated enzyme levels and and an enlarged bile duct are not usually associated with Leukemia. They are currently doing a battery of blood tests to rule out some kind of viral or bacterial infection as well as having a liver specialist chase down her bile and enzyme situation before proceeding with the bone marrow biopsy. This by no means rules out leukemia, but is the only hope we have that it could be something else. How typical of Tanner to be atypical.
