Unhappy Daughter..high sedrate

My daughter who is 23 years old has been having multiple medical problems without having a diagnosis.
Anyway, to try to make a long story as short as I can, she had some testing done and her sedrate was way off the has been for some time, also she is having severe chest pains and they told her yesterday that she has a substantial amount of fluid around her heart ( that doesn't sound very good to me )
She is going to see a specialist today and they said that they have pretty much ruled out everything but Lupus or Leukemia.
I might add that she has been under a great deal of stress as well with two little ones, 5 and 2 and alot of maritial problems.
She also gets what they hace called " Bell's Palsy ".

I am very afraid and just looking for a little info to try to understand all of this.
Thank you

Hi Nana -
Just wondering if you've gotten any more news from the doctors? I'm sure it's a nightmare to see your daughter struggling right now. Please keep us posted and let us know if we can be of help.

Good luck -
