When I was 7, my cousin Billy died of Hodgkin's Disease. With that being said, my daughter and I just got home from the doctor's office. Her Lymph nodes are enlarged and she's not sick with any infection.....She was also born with cCMV which is a virus I caught, while I was pregnant, that attacked her in my first trimester and gave her several complications including enlarged liver and spleen, brain damage and hearing loss in her left ear (to name a few). While doing research, I found that Hodgkin's Disease is generally found in teenage boys and men over 55. BUT what I have seen is that alot of young women have been diagnosed too.....Can a 3 year old girl get this? if so, what are the symptoms? My daughter is 3 years and 7 months (roughly) and since she's been born has only slept all the way through the night a handful of times....not sure if this is related to her cCMV or this lymph node thing she has going on......HELP!!!
