On 17 Apr we noticed swollen lymph nodes in our two year old daughters groin as well as she started having night sweats as well as napping (which came with a cough). Needing to have follow up xrays on her spine due to scoliosis we made an appointment for that Friday. Long story short, we have had a CBC done (only showed anemia which we started her on multi vitamin and iron drops), one ultrasound showing multiple bilateral, inguinal, periumbilical and mesenteric lymphs, largest being to the right of the umbilicus at 1.7 x 1.6 x 1.0 cm and a 5mm mesenteric lymph node with fatty notch (but the enlarged groin lymphs only actually measured 3-6mm on one side and 4-7mm on the other), TB test negative, stool sample came out with nothing abnormal, waiting on results from chest xray and follow up ultrasound to see if the abdominal lymphs have grown any more. Doctors appointment yesterday, doctor mentioned he can now feel the lymph nodes in her armpit that have grown compared to the last time he felt them. None of the lymphs are tender. (Past history, born preemie by 6 weeks, had NEC but no surgery needed, T9 butterfly vertebrae, constant battles with bronchitis, seemingly always sick)
She's barely eating (yesterday she had three grapes and a couple bites of a piece of pizza), she's tired, our nights are spent up with her between night sweats and a dry cough (the original cough was only when she laid down for a nap, now it is at night as well as sometimes during the day), her left leg seems to go out on her occasionally, and the highest her temp has gotten is 101.4 but for the last two days seems to have mellowed out to a normal 98.8, she's vomited twice in the past two weeks so not a lot and we are just all tired at this point.
