The preliminary results came back from Washington today....all NEGATIVE. What?! Im so confused. We are all so confused. How can everything come back negative when he is still having high fevers every 4 hours now. The nodules looked like abscesses with puss in them, so obviously its some kind of infection but no one can put a name to it. The Adeno virus test in his blood came back negative as well but the test for it on the nodules is still pending. The ID doc said that if its negative in his blood than it would most likely be negative in his lungs. So what now? Im growing more and more concerned that this is cancer related. The pathologist that looked at the sample said it looked more like bacteria than cancer, but I want them to go and test that sample for every cancerous cell possible and I also want them to redo a bone marrow aspirate. They say its not likely but I want them to be POSITIVE its not cancer. If that comes back good then the next question is how to treat something that they have no clue what it is. He is on 3 broad spectrum antibiotics right now (which dont seem to be doing anything) How long does he need to stay on those? Are they going to send us home with fevers? Are we still going to be here for his birthday in two weeks still not knowing whats going on? I just wish we had an answer. I want to know whats making my son so sick.
