Hello, Everyone!!
Hope someone will be able to help. For almost 3 weeks now, doctors can’t tell us what my 17-mo-old daughter's diagnosis might be, just sending us for repetitive general blood tests, which I can send upon request. We’re all by ourselves here, in Cyprus, and I'm very scared & worried.
Here’s Katie brief medical history (born 30.03.12):30/08 - infectious pimple on the leg got swollen & blown up (2 others on the arms, one by one, appeared & disappeared by themselves in the course of 2 weeks when I applied iodine betadine solution) + temperature 102 – went to hospital: white blood cells 700
until - 2/9 - at hospital, with intravenous antibiotics (constantly had IV on)
2/9 – discharged - white blood cells - 750
until 9/9 -antibiotic syrup Moxiclav Forte (Amoxicillin/Clavulanic Acid)
11/9 - no temperature, feels good, eats well, plays - 19500 white cells
15/9- caught cold, runny nose, cough, drinks milk well, finger feeds a little, doesn't want spoon food, still plays – I do her inhalers: Salamol (salbutamol sulphate), Atrovent (ipratropium bromide), Beclazone (beclometasone Dipropionate)
17/9 - white cells 27000 - plays, clinically seems to feel ok (considering flu), drinks milk well, but doesn’t want spoon food, runs
22/9- still runny nose, cough - WBC 22.69, RBC 4.96, HGB 13.4, NEUT 7.81, LYMPH 12.67, MONO 1.46
24/9 - cold almost gone, drinks milk, fingerfeeds herself, plays, runs, chest X-ray & stomach ultrasound OK
