my mother has been ill for about 5 years now and has been to every kind of doctor there is and nobody can figure out what is going on with her! We are desperate! If we dont find help soon we dont think she will make it much longer! shes been diagnosed with severe anemia sometimes she loses her blood faster than they can give it to her and nobody knows where it is going! they have done upper and lower GIs ,endoscopies (please excuse my spelling) and every other test there is and can find nothing shes had 95 blood transfusions and is probably going to be in the hospital tomorrow for more she had dropped down to 3 before when you are suppose to have 13-16 because her blood drops her heart works harder to push what blood there is through her body to get oxygen and she has had 2 heartattacks! she was on ventilators but fought her way off of them and now she has to take bone marrow shots 3 times a week plus IV iron to help keep her blood but that has stopped working this week alone shes had 4 bone marrow shots 2 IV iron and still her blood is going! None of the doctors can even give us an idea of where the blood is going or why! I have sat back for 5 years and watch these doctors be puzzled about her and now have simply got to the point where they throw theirs arms up no one wants to be bothered! Please this is my mother and my childrens grandma and i see she is losing the will to fight i am begging you please if anyone sees this that might even have the slighest idea of what it might be or who might know or how to help somehow please contact me asap there are also other syptoms many actually please contact me and ill share them!!! Thank you in advance! xoxo tydajoly@yahoo.com
