Subject: Question re: fat pads

I brought Mikey to the clinic today. The swelling in his
neck has gone down a bit, but you can still definitely feel
his lymph nodes, both there and else where in his body. His
tonsils also appear to be inflamed. He has diaherea, but I
think that is mainly due to the fact that I have not been able
to get more than A/D and baby food into him. He also has lost
0 .1 of a pound. Blood was taken and his stool was sent off
as a precaution, due to the fact that it was mucusy.
My question is do fat pads come and go? About 2 months ago
all of Mikey's lymph nodes down one side of his body were
enlarged. A fine needle biopsy was taken, but it was just
fat. Depending on what the bloodwork comes back as Mikey will
be knocked out to do a full biopsy .
Thank you,
Steph and Mikey
