Dd Doesn't Have An Absorption Problem,

Recommended Posts

I posted about 3 wks ago about my dd that possibly had a vitamin K deficiency. Her blood isn't clotting fast enough. she has bruises all over her legs (and recenlty they are showing up on her arms) and her gums sometimes bleed.

The hematologist is ordering another very special blood test to check out her platelets. We have to drive nearly 2 hrs away for a 9am appt. on Monday to do this blood work. It can only be done in the AM. She hasn't really told us yet what she is looking for, but the Vit. K defeciency has been ruled out. She doesn't think that it is a bleeding disorder because my dd has had ear tubes put in twice and her adenoids removed without any problems.

Please pray for my little girl! I am so worried about her. And she HATES blood draws, and every time we go in, they have to do another blood draw. She just screams and begs for a bandaid. She turns 3 on Friday. She is too young to understand why we have to keep taking her to this dr that keeps hurting her. Please just keep her in your thoughts.

I will pray for her, and you. I know how hard it is to watch our children suffer. I am 32 and I HATE needles(it is the reason I did not attempt to get a formal diagnosis).

Good luck, I hope you find out what is going on and that it is easily fixable.

My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.

My son is four and does not understand why they are doing xrays and has to have his blood drawed and on June 19th has to go though a complete clean out and will not be able to eat after 5:00 June 18th. He is having a GI scope done on the 20th.

Anyways i understand and i wish you all well.
