I'm at wits end with all the things going on with my daughter... And the doctors we take her to give us conflicting results. She is only a year old, but she cannot crawl or support any type of weight on her arms, or legs. Taking her to the children's hospital in little rock, they said test results were common with Muscular Dystrophy, and were refered to Dallas. But here about a week back, she came down with something else, and I have no idea if it's related. She's been coughing, gagging occasionally, and seeming to swallow whatever she is coughing up. This is accompanied by a high fever (in the 100's) and she will hardly eat anything. A few nights back a new symptom set in where her mother and i woke up to find a stange "black" stain on her pillow and beside her. By comparion, it isn't a large amount, but it looks like she may have thrown it up into the night... If anyone has any information that would be of assistance, I'll be more then grateful.
