Well, got insurance settled and I head to the doctor first thing Monday morning.
However, today has been a rollercoaster. My oldest twin wakes up screaming that her legs hurt. Head to doctor. They do a routine blood panel (but N.P. throws in a few extra tests on a hunch) and we just suspect maybe a low potassium level. Get an urgent call 2 hours later that her hemoglobin is at a 7. So now waiting on the Children's Hospital to call to see if we are being admitted for testing/blood transfusion or just making an appointment.
Her other blood work panels didn't show anemia, so we have to figure out what this is from. Then the doctor asks me "Aren't you being tested for Celiac?" I tell her yes and she said to definitely mention that to the drs when we go to the specialist because that's an important consideration in how they proceed.
So, I sit and wait on a phone call, my daughter is in pain and exhausted. I figure with a hemoglobin of 7, we'd already be at the hospital but I guess there are procedures.
UGH! But isn't a low hemoglobin tied to Celiacs?
