I just talked to Dr. Ryan (the pediatrician) and he said the results came back and it "looks like" Jade has recently or currently has EBV, or Mono, which would be a viral infection. As I was jumping for joy, he brought me back down to earth to say that he is still not completely satisfied, and wants us to continue with the bone scan and still talk with Dr. Lemons (our oncologist) next week when we get the results. But for right now, I am going to assume it is mono and rest easy this weekend until Monday. At least the evidence points to that. He said her IgM levels were elevated, I need to look that up because I don't really know what that means, but he said it points to the EBV virus. I was under the impression that this test would give us a definite answer as to whether or not she has the virus, but he didn't sound 100% positive. We know there is one more test to clear, the bone scan, but we are feeling much more confident than we did that this will all just be viral. So until next week, let's all figure this is going in a good direction!!! Thank goodness.....sigh.
