In early July, Cookie noticed what we believed to be a bite of some sort on her lower right leg. Soon, she had many more. She noticed that she would find herself sleepy and in need of a nap. Then, more spots appeared with fevers and even more spots. The doctor thought the spots and fevers were the result of an infection or virus.This lead us to a string of consultations with an infectious disease doctor, a rheumatologist and a dermatologist.Two biopsies were taken from the nodules on her legs and the test results came back negative for an infection or virus. Finally, she was diagnosed with Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma.
