Abnormal blood? Freaking out!!!! EDIT

Posted by   + Show Post

Okay my DD is a month and two days old well we just got a call from the doctor and she said that DD's blood came back abnormal and that they would refer us to a specialist at Children's Medical Center and would call us back with an appointment for more testing.  I tried asking her what she meant by "abnormal" but she wouldn't tell e she just kept saying "needs more testing".  I get the feeling she didn't want to tell me.  I'm so worried right now.  My husband and I feel so lost right now.  No one will tell us anything about the results of the test from the doctors office.  My husbands worried about cancer in runs in both of our families.  I just need some words of encouragement please.

Edit:  Okay sorry it took me so long to edit.  It's been super crazy and scary here.  Since my post I finally got someone to tell me what was up.  Her blood test came back saying she may have Cystic Fibrosis.  We went to Children's for the second test a sweat test and had to wait till monday to get any results.  Her sweat test came back normal but now they want us to go to a Cystic Fibrosis Clinic.  Why would they want us to go there if her second test came back normal?  I have a feeling there's more they arn't telling us.  I feel I will have a head full of grey hair before this is over and I'm only 24.  Super scared and Super stressed.

Breathe & stay positive. Most cancer is not genetic. Could be something like thallasemia (spelling?) or another blood condition that is not life threatening but just needs investigation/observation. Dont panic. (Hugs)

I have a feeling there is more they are not telling you too. I mean why go there and waste peoples time unless they really think that that's what is going on. I'm sorry. Please keep us updated.
