4 doctors agree

In brief: Doubt it

Most kids with anemia are treated as outpatients with oral supplements.
Followup visits occur when needed but are not a daily or weekly event.If hospitalized and receiving IV iron or some other intense therapy it might qualify. If you submit a marginal or weak reason it can effect your employability.

In brief: Possibly yes

If you need to take time off secondary to your son's illness or the illness requires you to miss work secondary to doctor's visits, yes you may qualify for fmla leave.
Talk with your hr depaatment if you have one or speak to your boss or supervisor.
