My son was diagnosed with leptomeningeal metastases along his spine back in January. He remains relatively well and alert, while the cancer continues to spread. The last few weeks I've noticed that his skin colour has gained a yellowish tinge. Nobody else can see it, except myself and my husband, those who know him best. Son's skin is normally very white, with blue-ish veins visible underneath. But now it is slightly yellowish, with very few veins visible. His eyes remain clear. Could this yellow tinge be associated with the leptomeningeal issue, or is it more likely due to his body starting to shut down? Or maybe something more innocuous like lack of sunlight, since he is always inside these days?
