More prayers going up Dina. I was tested for mono when I was about 15. I had all the symptoms but it turned out to be a mild form of anemia treated with some iron. Let us know how it turns out. I am sure glad your little one is okay. We have problems with getting medical attention on Sunday evenings around here too.

Thank you for your prayers. He hasn't showed symptoms of mono- no fever or extreme tiredness just coughing and congestion which dr recommended antihistimine. I will keep you posted on the results in the next couple of days. If the CBC does not show mono, then we'll have to go get the sonogram, take him to a specialist (ENT) then perhaps a biopsy of the lump.

Dina, I'm so sorry to hear about your boys' troubles. I wanted to share with you what happened to one of my sons when he was 7. I found a large lump on the side of his chest near the armpit that hadn't been there the day before. He had been playing with a stray kitten the previous few weeks so I thought it might be cat scratch fever, but took him to the doc anyway. She said it couldn't be that because it wasn't painful at all and he never got sick. She sent us to a surgeon who said the same thing and said he thought it was a lymph node and it had to be biopsied to check for lymphoma.

Next morning, they took it out and came out to tell us it was definitely a lymph node and no sign of infection so it was probably lymphoma, but it would take 2 days for pathology. I spent 2 days scared out of my wits and guess what - it was cat scratch fever! They said he just must have a very very strong immune system not to have gotten sick or anything. So if your son has had any contact with a stray cat, be sure and mention it to the docs. And good luck. I'll be waiting anxiously til we hear all is well.
Terry

My own vent is that I am at my mom's trying to help her get everything done but we can't because the medical examiner still hasn't issued a death certificate for my brother. It's a large city and they have a backlog. The funeral home said it could take as long as 4 months! It's driving my mom crazy. (They did release his body though and we were able to have him cremated already, thankfully.) Anybody else have any experience with this? I do remember it took 2 weeks to get my dad's and he died in a hospital so there was no medical examiner involved.

Just asked my son about him coming in contact with cats but he hasn't at all. I did check other symptoms of mono and some kids develop lumps in the neck area. I got a call from his pediatrician asking me to go ahead and get the ultrasound done immediately. He wants all tests done before he can diagnose. I'm still waiting and hopefully will get a call later today from the dr.

So sorry to hear about your brother's passing. I hope all issues get resolved and your mom is finally relieved from it all. Prayers for your family are coming your way.
