More drama

Hazel has a lump in her groin that my mom noticed about a month ago. We were in Mexico over Christmas and noticed it had gotten much larger. When we got home my dad called his old high school buddy and our kid's pediatrician. We went over to his house and he ordered an ultrasound and some blood work and sent us to a pediatric surgeon. He ordered more blood work and a chest X-ray. Everything so far has come back pretty normal. In the last few days it has gotten even bigger and turned painful. She has even started walking funny. The doctor we saw today was infectious disease. He told us if it gets worse in the next few days they're going to do a biopsy. They are optimistic that it's not leukemia or lymphoma because it would be so rare. That's comforting but not that comforting. We could again use some prayers. We're pretty hopeful nothing's wrong but it hard waiting.
