PostSubject: Update on Skylar 8-31-13   Sat 31 Aug 2013 - 11:51

I have a few emails asking if I would stop by an update on Skylar. As of  now, we are still not 100% with any diagnosis yet.  She has appts with another neurologist, a hematologist, a rheumatologist, a gastroenterologist and hepatologist.
 
She has abnormal findings in her blood, one we know for sure is Giant platelet syndrome. She has clotting issues and brusies easily. Her liver tests were also abnormal.
 
She is seeing these specialists to get final word on what type of blood disorder they think she has, what type of autonomic nuerological disorder she has, confirm or rule out lupus(her blood work was positive in some areas for lupus) and and fibromyalgia. And last her digestive problems some how tie into all of this as well.
 
Ultimately Skylar could end up needing a bone marrow transplant as this is the only cure for some of the blood disorders.....other blood disorders, there is no cure.  sad 
She has ALOT of appts and testing in September. She is now on Medicaid through the texas medically needy program as I said before. She will also start getting disability benefits as well as home health services. We have her in certain treatment tracks now that keep her symptoms under control, meaning the pain she feels 24/7 is a more manageable pain. She has appts 2-4 times weekly with local doctors and monthly with the specialists at the childrens hospital. THis right now keeps things at an ok enough level that she is able to stay out of the hospital and attend school. We are very close to answers finally on this, so far, 5 month journey.
Thank you all for keeping Skylar in your prayers, she needs them!!

Thank you all for the prayers! Yes we were concerned that our middle daughter kalysta was showing similar symptoms. She has been diagnosed with scoliosis and her headaches were related to that mainly. She sees a chiro regularly now and this has made a big difference for her. She is doing well now.

Again thanks so much for the continued thoughts and prayers for Skylar and the rest of us, they are appreciated! thankyou!
