    My child's diagnosis of ALL Leukemia

    Hi,

    My daughter has been diagnosed with ALL. So, far it has been identified as Low-Risk Standard and the leukemia cells had not effected the Central Nervous System. She started the treatment on May 9th and the flow cytometry report from the latest bone marrow test indicates that there are no leukemia cells left.

    However, for the last few days she has been keeping very quiet and has been complaining that she has been very tired. I am concerned that she may be sad or depressed. Can Decodrone (sp??) have such an effect on a 7 yr old child? I am concerned as today she talked about death and how all cancer can kill people.

    Please help.

    Thanks.

    Dear Positive Spirit,

    How is your daughter doing? It sounds like she was diagnosed with ALL about the same time as my son.

    My son also had times where he was very tired. Sometimes he was sad or angry also. The doctors and nurses explained that this is very normal, caused by the treatment itself. Sadness and anger are also a natural reaction to finding out you're seriously sick.

    It's now a year later, and my son is doing better. I hope all is well with you.

    Betty
