Today my son turned 12 and he had a liver biopsy via a small incision. We've been in hospital since Saturday and if his blood test is good, we can take him home tomorrow. I might find out tomorrow, Tuesday or it could be inconclusive. I've been trying to get him appropriate care for a year and he looks a frail mess and we're now being taken seriously but I still have to wait around before we can start making him better. We're not actually doing anything for him yet. We're still trying to figure out what he has, probably cancer, but what kind? He's not part of any groups that typically have the issues he's having. I'm glad we're not being told it's psychiatric anymore but I want to see him start getting better already. I feel like I've been fighting this for a year now and I'm being told it's marathon not a race, like this has just started. Like this past year didn't even happen.
