My son Austin just recently got married to the love of his life. On February 1, 2018. He was so happy he noticed in March of 2018 he kept losing weight and wasn't even trying.  He has lost 40 to 45 IBS he went to a doctor on several occasions and they said that he was anemic and he needed this vitamin and that vitamin. He didn't feel good at all and he was rushed to a hospital in Panama City Florida Austin's new wife handed the paperwork that they received from the clinic to the hospital and they saw that his white blood cells where 90 times what they where supposed to be.  The same clinic that said he was anemic. When he made it to the hospital his spleen was 3 times the normal size. The doctors did there test at the hospital and said that they think it leukemia and after seeing the oncologist he confirmed that it is leukemia. They have transferred him from Panama City Florida hospital to UAB in Birmingham Alabama. He has no insurance. Help this loving married couple with the hospital bills and the bills as the wife is the only one who can support them at this time.  
God Bless.

Haven’t had a chance to update since last week. Austin was released last Monday and we stayed in a hotel outside Birmingham for a while. His blood count was consistently going down and we have an appointment next Monday. After a week in the hotel, we found an apartment. It was a little higher than I wanted to pay with us having limited income, but I’m going to make it work. We’re still working on getting him insurance and some other assistance due to the fact he cannot work. We are grateful to everybody that has taken the time to donate and share. If everyone could resume sharing since we are still in a tight spot without insurance and limted funds. Thank you everybody.

Now he can move out of bed to the couch. It’s nice to see him be able to wear his pjs and not the gown. I couldn’t imagine being in a bed this whole stay and I’m so thankful he’s able to have some freedom back.

Beyond proud of Austin this evening! He finally learned he isn’t confined to the bed and we did some walking. To the vending machine, to the window so he could finally overlook the city and see where we are (I have to do a lot of walking to stores so he gets photo updates from me but I think him being able to see how big the city is made him feel better), and tomorrow, we’re going to walk down to the cafeteria and get some breakfast. Since he’s been able to get up and move he’s been smiling more and it’s the first I’ve seen him do so in a few days. This is still a long journey, but to see my husband smile makes me feel more hopeful.

Yesterday and today haven’t been the greatest. They started my husband on a pill and he has been nauseous and throwing up for the last six hours. They confirmed it is CML which is a more “treatable” form of leukemia. I say that lightly. Due to the fact it’s genetic and always going to be in his genes, it will always pose a threat. If this pill doesn’t work, they’ll have to try different forms of treatment. Thank you again for all the support and donations. More updates coming soon.
