My 2-1/2 year old granddaughter is being transferred to Children's Hospital. Her platelet count is down to 4. Any spare prayers would be greatly appreciated. I noticed last night her legs were horrifically bruised and told my daughter they had to get her to the doctor.

Oh dear, Carolyn, that's scary to hear. I will be thinking of your granddaughter and sending healing energy her way.

This is so heartbreaking to hear Carolyn. I'm definitely adding her to my prayer list, as well as the rest of the family. When a child is ill, everyone suffers too.

I'll add my prayers, too, Carolyn. I've been on the receiving end a lot in the past couple of years so I'm more than happy to be on the other end. Do keep us informed as you can. What's her name (first name only)?

Thankyou everyone. At least it is not quite as frightening as when the Emergency Room Doctor told them her count was 4, when the kidlet (Pediatrician) came in he told them the count is 4000, but anything below 10,000 is still not good. They are still going to send her to Choc the last time I talked to my daughter. Mom and Dad are very upset to say the least. All week my daughter has griped that she did not get to go to Glamis off-roading, good thing they did not.

I wonder if she has ITP- idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura. I hope that's what she has, actually, because while scary, it's very treatable. My son had it when he was 4 or so. An auto-immune response kicks in and wipes out their platelets so they start bruising like crazy and it can be dangerous if they do anything physically rough. Usually there is a huge presenting bruise and then loads of little red dots called petechiae from capillaries leaking. The treatment is to give an immune globulin IV which helps until their own systems kick in. Can't play sports for a few weeks after but that is manageable. It can be tense waiting for test results to rule out other much worse things. And I'm am truly sending out lots of good wishes that it's not those.
