Little call, big letters

This will make more sense to you DS moms and families out there... I apologize for the cryptic nature, but you'll have to trust my reasoning.

Braska had a lab draw on Tuesday last week. The GI called me Wednesday and said there were some significantly elevated levels in the results. Ok fine. Not like we've never had an abnormal lab. But then he used *those* words...the C word and the L word. Said he'd be talking to hem/onc. We needed to go redraw on Friday morning. We didn't freak or anything, but when I hung up the phone, I thought, "Wow, so that's what it's like the first time they mention it."

We took her for her draw again on Friday morning, and we figured everything was fine since we got no call over the weekend. Yesterday I checked in with them. Dr. R confirmed that everything was clear, almost in a "weird way," but they checked with the lab to make sure it was a viable result. All is well. Follow up in 6 months as usual unless there are concerns.

We're thankful every day, and especially so now.

  3. GOOD!

    I was worried after you posted about the labs being redone. If celiac & thyroid are ok, well. I know what's left.

    SO GLAD Braska's okay.

  10. Actually, last week when you told me you had to go redraw because of abnormal results, I went home and freaked and told John, "They aren't telling me she has leukemia because they know I will freak." So I freaked all week until I read this post.

    Just so you know, not freaking me out, freaks me out.
