Discussion Topic: Almost 3 yr old and numerous Hospital stays?
04-20-2006 @ 9:21 PM
By shear luck I came across a page in a magazine about PI that prompted me to read this site.
My daughter will be 3 in June, We have had approx 10 or more hospital stays, She was diagnosed with failure to thrive at 2 months old, she suffered from Acid reflux but has since out grown it.
Anytime my other children get sick my daughter lands in the hospital, her white count always goes high so we end up spending 4-7 days on I.V antibotics and normally come home with no answers .
She is on her 4th set of tubes however still gets numerous infections. ( this does run in the family)
We have had numerous tests however this illness was never mentioned to me. ( I will now be addressing the Dr. ASAP on what steps to take)
I was looking for some insight from anyone on this illness and if anyone has dealt with similar issues.
Thank you for any info!
Signed a very tired mom that is sick of living at the hospital..

I would see an infections Disease Dr. who works with children only they seem to know all about the correct labs to draw. Good Luck.
