    Just something to think about...I am 31 and still have a swollen/scarred lymph node from repeated bronchitis as a child. When I noticed it as a teen (I was not sick at the time) I was very worried. After going to the Doctor...I was told it was just scar tissue from repeated infections. I am not saying this is the DX of your daughter, but I thought I would share.

    Hmm...........Something to definetly think about-Thanks!She has had RSV as a baby(11 months)and now has Asthma.She also has had bronchiolitis a few times.I will definetly monitor her and keep an eye on it.You could say we are a little over protective of her.She is our little miracle baby-weighing in at birth at only 2lbs.15 oz,that was 4 yrs ago and she has never had any problems as a result of her birth weight-Thank god!!

    Glad it is 'nothing'. I think as nurses we all tend to imagine the worst at times.

    I know how you feel! One day shortly after graduation I came home from working 3-11 to find a note from husband saying one of our daughters had "lumps in her neck." I went straight-away to my sleeping child and felt nearly grape-size lumps on her neck, behind her ears (post-cervical lymph nodes). I PANICKED, cried all night thinking she had Hodgkins disease (but managed NOT to call the doc until the very first second of call-in time). He checked her out and said, "Eh, it's nothing but swollen lymph nodes." She had them for the LONGEST time. But never any sign of sickness, nor were they tender. I could feel them periodically. Now she's 12 and finally, I don't feel them anymore. But they were there, on and off (mostly on) for a few years!

    I'm so happy that everything turned out good for you and your daughter! So many things to scare us out there...
