The worst...

Well...we are still in the hospital with Ayva. They know nothing more than they did on the 6th. Her platlet and red blood cell count keep dropping for an unknown reason. She had to have a second blood transfusion last night and as of this morning her RBC was 13 (up from 6.2 when they transfused and 12 right after the transfusion). Her platlet count dropped from 72 to 47 in a matter of 12 hours. They don't know why. She cannot go home until we figure out why, or until they are confident that her levels won't drop anymore. If her platlets drop into the teens, she will need a platlet transfusion. I just can't believe this is happening. They no longer think it has to do with her kidneys (since her kidney function has been good this whole time), so the one thing they thought it was, it isn't. I was so nieve. I thought that the doctors would be able to know what was wrong and fix it, but here we are, 10 days later, and they still don't know anything more than the day we came into the ER. NOT TO MENTION that along with her blood issues, she has high blood pressure which caused the left ventricle in her heart to thicken and is resulting in her heart rate to be very fast. She has 2 infections (c diff. and campylobacter), we found out that her sats drop to 88 everytime she sleeps (should be in the 90's) and she tested positive for influenza B! The poor girl just can't catch a break. So we will definatly be in the hospital through the weekend, and hopefully by monday they can find out how to keep the counts from dropping or what the acutal problem is.

Thanks to everyone who is helping us out. Please keep praying.

I am so sorry that you are going through all of this with her...and right as things seemed to be turning around. I will keep sending positive thoughts your way. I hope that they are able to figure out what is going on quickly.

I am sorry that this is happening and hope that she gets better soon so you can get back to your other two. That must be hard. Get better soon. We are thinking about you.
