Maize's bloodwork shows a possible infection (high white cells but no fever) and the cells they looked at from a swollen lymph node do not show Lymphoma (YEA!) -- it shows cells consistent with an infection or potentially another malignancy but they recommend a biopsy.
Since Maize is feeling perfectly fine (on Monday morning she was barely walking and clearly not well), I am going to think about the biopsy and what would be gained by doing it versus waiting and seeing what happens. At her age (10 years, 4 mos) I am not sure we would aggressively treat a cancer anyway -- so knowing sooner rather than later (if it is cancer) might not benefit her/us.
She has been started on antibiotics now -- maybe it is best to see what happens with that... Putting her under anesthesia to do a biopsy to possibly diagnose something we would not aggressively treat anyway -- hmmmm.... and when it could just be an infection....more hmmmm....
