The little tike in my avatar is my now 6 y/o grandson Tyler. In march he was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma, a childhood cancer. He was recently found to be cancer free.
Friday morning he had a seizure. The made a preliminary diagnosis of ADEM, a rare brain disorder resulting from a viral infection or immunization. It is generally curable.
Today they revised the diagnosis to PML, a terminal viral brain infection. There is no treatment. They give him 6 - 12 mos. But they also said there is a small chance that this diagnosis is wrong. They did a spinal tap to confirm. We'll know in a few days.
I'm in total shock. He is my best buddy. I used to ride him in the bike seat on the hybrid, pick him up at school, and ride to the park. In August I got the tandem and rigged up a foot rest so he could ride on that.
If you pray, please pray for another mis diagnosis and a complete healing.
