    She may be thalassemic. Her results are in and we're on the way to the doctor for further details.

    Please pray for her. Thank you.

    DM, you and your family are definitely in my prayers, my brother! :(

    Hopefully (or I pray that), the initial diagnosis is incorrect.

    It's a genetic disorder that causes underproduction of hemoglobin and RBCs.

    For those who need to know.

    If left untreated, thalassemia can cause heart failure, but with a program of periodic blood transfusions and proper medications to prevent the accumulation of iron in the heart and liver, her quality of life should be minimally affected. She just will never get to eat cookies and drink orange juice at the high school blood drive, that's all, and her husband to be will have to get blood tested to make sure he does not have the same genetic disorder so as not to have complications with procreation.

    It's been said before... but, I'm sorry to hear that DM. I remember you posting pictures of your daughter, and she's absolutely adorable. Good luck with the treatment; little kids can be amazingly strong.
