So first Macey had her ultrasound on Monday. She had to starve for 6 hours, and not drink so she was a little unhappy. I toles her I knows how she feels cos sometimes Mom is late feeding us when she gets home from work. I saw her eying my round tummy so I don't fink she believed me. We are still waiting on the results from that.
BUTT yesterday her Dr. from Blanks Children Hospital called and said all of her blood work was fine EXCEPT one of the weird ones he took. She showed positive for CAT SCRATCH FEVER sometime within the last 6 months. WEIRD cos she never had scratches, or marks, or a fever or any of the symptoms most people would have showed. We read up on it and it said you can even get licked by a CAT that has it and get sick. But hers never got sick.
SO now the important dr. at Blanks may send her onto infectious diseases cos it is still a mystery as to WHY her leg and foot are still swollen and IF that cat fing that happened so long ago has anything to do with it or not!!!
Cat scratch fever can create problems with your lymph nodes so maybe it hurt a lymph node that has to do wif her leg and this is her reaction....none of it really makes any sense. They did say it was to late to start her on antibiotics...so we are waiting on who she see's next.
The kidney girl from Iowa City did call and check up on her cos she is worried about the amount of blood that shows in her urine....she thinks that of course is a different issue from her leg....so in a few weeks she will go back to follow up on that.
Mom is working on our Thankful post for the week. WE have lots to be thankful for.
