PostSubject: Please say some prayers for my young nephew   Fri Aug 31, 2007 6:23 pm

My nephew Matthew is about 12 or 13 years old and he has a blood clot that goes from him knee to his pelvis. bawling He fell down some steps. My sister and her husband took him to the hospital and that's when they found out. They are not sure if it was from the fall or that it's a blood disease.bawling If it's a blood disease he might be on Coumadin, (Warfarin) a blood thinner, for the rest of his life! Usually older people are on that. I have a few adults including my dad who is on that. If you get the smallest little cut you can bleed to death.bawling I couldn't bare to loose another nephew again.bawling It would just tear me up. He is the sweetest kid. He was born a couple months premature, was very small, and only has one kidney. I don't know if that has anything to do with it. Please pray that it's nothing to serious.


The poor kid's life is all about skateboarding and dirtbiking and he will never be able to do that again if he has to go on Coumadin.No

I'll say a prayer for him, Beckie, but it may not be that bad if he has to go on Coumadin. My mom has been on it for ten years and she's never had any problems. It thins her blood, but not to the point that it doesn't clot at all if she starts bleeding. She's cut herself lots of times, and there was never any excessive bleeding.

Well that's good to hear. My mom is talking to my sister about him now. He is in the hospital and is being giving Heparin in his stomach. The docs said he might have to have it injected into his stomach for the rest of his life too. No He's been sleeping mostly right now.

Thanks guys. :)

Anja, I'll bet you're thinking of hemophilia, like Alexei Romanov had.

It sounds like maybe Beckie's nephew has just the opposite problem - blood that clots too readily rather than too slowly. That's what my mother had. She developed a blood clot in her abdomen, and now has to take Coumadin as an ongoing treatment. She's fine now. The medication hasn't affected her life at all, and I'm guessing it will probably work just as well for Beckie's nephew. Thumbsup

Yes that´s what I was thinking of... with hemophilia it also takes just a little scratch to kill you. But I´m not familiar with English medical terms and didn´t want to look it all up in my dictionary so therefore I "misunderstood" it... But I understand it now. either way, it´s still as sad

It always seems so unfair that a child have to go through something like this... I just hope it won´t ruin his spirit Wink

Thanks Emily.

His spirits seemed to be up last night. Cool

There is a nine month old baby sharing his room. The poor little guy is waiting for a liver transplant! Blue His skin is very yellow. I am so worried about him as well. He has the biggest most beautiful eyes. Please pray for him as well.

I will pray for your nephew and for the baby too...I think that your nephew will improve, but the little one worries me a lot. Liver problems at that age are not so easy to cure. No

TO GRANDUCHESSOLGA: In fact, hemophilia can't kill a person for a simple scratch. And there is three hemophilia levels too. Just go to:

www.hemophilia.org

www.hemophilia.com

These two sites have a lot of info about the disease as it was in the past, and as it is treated now. Oh..by the way: Do you know that an Argentinian Independence Warrior, Don Martín Miguel de Güemes was hemophiliac? His story is very interesting...But I didn't know there was an illness who was entirely opposite to hemophilia! :unsure:

I have no news on the little baby but I will for sure ask about the little doll. My nephew's clot has gotten softer. He will be going for physical therapy soon. He was able to get up in his wheel chair. Small inprovement, but still great to know.Cool
