Kaet's leukemia has returned. Words we never, ever wanted to speak. But, here we are. There will be a new course of treatment update soon, as Kaet met wi th her team today to get it going. The kids and James are at home, for now, as Kaet isn't allowed to have anyone on the Leukemia floor due to Covid restrictions af MD Anderson. This brings new round of bills and costs that no family should ever have to budget into their lives. Anything and everything is welcome and appreciated! We know she is a fighter, and won't let this be the end to her story. Prayers over our whole family are always felt, we love you all and are SO thankful for #KaetsArmy.
As some of you may already know,at the end of a very long day yesterday (May 21), we got some news that shocked us all. Kaet received a preliminary diagnosis of Leukemia after being in the ER most of the day.
She was transferred by Ambulance last night to Sacred Heart in Pensacola for a bone marrow biopsy and further labs and imaging.
The biopsy was done this morning (5/22), and confirmed that she has Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). She cannot have any visitors except James right now, due to the CDC guildelines in place because of Covid, which means the kids and the rest of our family can't visit her during all of this.
The reason I created this page is to give those who love Kaet and James an easy outlet to help! Kaetlin is amazingly strong and is ready to fight this cancer head on, and we can help support them by easing the stress and worry that the financial burdens can bring. She needs to focus on healing right now, so every penny and prayer is going to help us help her!
I will keep this page updated as often as possible, so share with anyone and everyone you know that wants to know what is happening. Thank you!!
