At age 2, Callie started having trouble walking after a fall in early November 2015. After seeing a pediatric orthopedist for weeks and then a pediatric neurologist for an MRI of her brain and spine, we finally got an answer in January as to what was going on with our little girl.
An x-ray of her right leg and blood work showed that Callie had acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Fortunately, after a month of intense chemotherapy, she was in remission. She had been in physical rehab three times a week to regain the ability to walk on her own.
She keeps getting better and stronger each day! She finished treatment in March of 2018, and has been in remission almost three years this February. She still is in Physical therapy and occupational therapy about once a month. She is also being treated for low bone density with intravenous infusions due to side effects from chemo. She is in preschool and is on a cheer team, and loves horseback riding.
