I have a small swollen lymph node on the left side of my neck. I already asked my ENT doctor about it the last time I went to her clinic, and she made me undergo a complete blood count (CBC) test and a chest x-ray to find out if I have an infection anywhere in my body. My CBC test showed no signs of infection but revealed that I was slightly anemic. I was given iron supplements to correct this deficiency.

I also had a normal chest x-ray, and I was relieved that I did not have to undergo a spirometry test because my lungs are okay. . This is a test that can diagnose different lung diseases. In this test, the patient breathes into a mouthpiece connected to an instrument called a spirometer.

My ENT doctor said I can have the small swollen lymph node removed or I can just let it be if it’s not bothersome. I’ve decided to simply let it stay where it is because it’s just too small and it hasn’t really gotten bigger since I discovered it.

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
