Hi my name is Daymon, and I was diagnosed with Burkitt's Leukemia. It happened so fast, it all started when I was having back pains. My mom was really worried when they were getting really bad so she took me to the emergency room in Richfield. The doctor there said that my back looked fine, but there was something in my blood called platelets and that they were very low. So that was why they were worried about me. I had to have 2 more blood tests, they did not look very good so my doctor decided that I should go see a Dr. Barnett who is an oncologist at Primary Children's Hospital. I was really scared and I was in allot of pain. They decided to do a bone marrow biopsy and it is what confirmed that I had the Burkitt's Leukemia. It's hard to understand why I have to be in here, but my mom and dad said it's the best hospital to be in. They told me my body is just really sick right now and it needs special treatments called chemo to make it better. I know that there are a lot of people praying for me that love me very much, and I know I will get better but it will be a while before that happens. So this will by my own journey.

Well what we were hoping wouldnt happen did, Daymon started to fever fri morning. We had to take him to the ER in Richfield and thank goodness Dr. Brown was fine to treat him there instead of having to go back up north. They drew blood and started him on a antibiotic and will know more on sunday about what they need to treat it.  So he stayed last night and we are hoping he gets to come home mon. but a hospitol is a hopitol to daymon, so it really did not matter where we were he still hates it. He needs a transfusion so they will send that from up north and he will get it tomorrow. The poor thing is just so sick, we are just patiently waiting for his counts to come up so  that he can feel good for a couple of days before we have to go back to primary childrens on the 24th. Thats one of the hard things about it, is he finally starts to feel good and we go and start all over again.
