THE DOCTORS DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS WRONG WITH HER UNTIL ONE NIGHT IN JUNE IN 1998.SHE BECAME VERY ILL AND LATHOGIC,THE E.R. DOCTOR GAVE THE DIAGNINOSES OF LUEKEMIA. THEY HAD TO TRANSPORT HER TO ANOTHER HOSPITAL FOR A HEMOTOLIGIST TO LOOK AT HER. HE GAVE THE DIAGNINOSES OF AUTOIMMUNE HEMOLYTIC ANEMIA(EVANS SYNDROME). BUT LATER FOUND OUT THIS YEAR SHE HAS ITP. WE A 911 WITH HER IN MARCH. PLATELET COUNT OF 15 THEN WENT TO 1 IN 11/2 HRS. SHE HAD SEVERE BRUISING ALL OVER HER BODY,SPLEEN THE SIZE OF HER STOMACH,PECHIA ALL OVER HER AS WELL,SEMI UNCONCIOUS, AND THE REDS IN HER EYE WERE ALL GONE. SHE HAS HAD MANY TREATMENTS OF GAMMUGOBBLINS,SOLUMEDROL,BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS, AND PLACED IN ICU DURING TREAMENTS. SHE IS ONLY 4.SHE HAS BEEN ON PREDNISONE MOST OF HER LIFE,AND NOW IS OFF.
