    Oh No

    Dad started feeling fever like symptoms a week prior to his diagnosis. High fever, severe lethargy. When he went to see the doctor they ran blood tests and the doc called and rushed him to go to the ER due to a severely high white blood cell count. Dad checked in after realizing that he wasn't getting better. Later that night in the ER after trying to get answers from the staff, finally a nurse asks me behind closed doors if I really want to hear his possible diagnosis.I said yes and that's when she said that the doctors think its Leukemia because of the high WBC count.
