A sickness bug on holiday
We were on a family holiday in Scotland for Jeroen’s (my husband) 40th birthday. Erin and her older sister Caitlyn had both had a sickness bug before we left. Caitlyn was fine after 24 hours but Erin seemed to be struggling to shake it off.
She was not being sick but had no appetite and was looking a little pale. We thought she would pick up and drove to Fort William in Scotland.
While we were away Erin seemed to get more and more pale and still no appetite. She still seemed energetic and playful which was surprising considering she wasn’t eating. The day before we were due to leave she looked terrible, very very pale and going blue around the mouth.
We decided to take her to the little local hospital for them to check her over before driving home the following day. The doctors there heard a heart murmur and decided to transfer her to Inverness for them check it over properly. Once in Inverness, they did some blood tests which came back showing she had leukaemia.
