Her biopsy showed follicular and paracortical hyperplasia and the flow cytometry showed a huge overgrowth of her T cells!
Basically, it was from her ALPS. Phoebe's condition causes uncontrolled accumulation of her lymphocytes (T cells) which causes the lymph nodes, and other organs, to enlarge.
The doctors are still concerned about the size it was, the color it was and that it wasn't noticeably that large from palpation and visual exam. This just means we will need more ultrasounds and possibly better imaging in the future.
The incision looks great, the steri strips are off and Phoebe wants a big bowl of rice pudding!! I'll call today a win!
