I haven’t mentioned this before because the result Didnt bear thinking about and I preferred not to think about it than share it with you all, but yesterday I had my youngest boy (2yrs old) back to the hospital for some results following investigations into night sweats (soaking wet and needing to change pyjamas and bedding) and a couple of enlarged lymph nodes. The doc who saw him first said that although he looked a healthy and happy boy, he shouldn’t be having these sweats and he was a little worried about these enlarged groin lymph nodes, so he wanted some further tests to rule out anything sinister.
So for the last two weeks Mrs Medic and I have been trying not to dwell too much on thoughts of lymphoma and other nasty childhood diseases.
But the results are in, and he is fine!!!!!!!
We still don’t know why he is having these sweats, but they seem to be getting a little bit less now, but who cares as HE DOESNT HAVE CANCER!!
It’s odd that despite all the medical experience I have had in 17 years in the NHS, even though my logical mind has been telling me that there was no way he could be that poorly as he is so fit, active and lively, all it takes is one little seed of doubt to start thinking the worst.
Anyway….. Another piece of good news about little one, is that after 2.5 years he has finally slept in his own bed all night for the last 4 nights in a row!
I think I will put the lottery on tomorrow!
