Kewcumber's Been In Hospital - her blood isn't Clotting

(218 Posts)
MrsRecycle Fri 19-Sep-08 14:28:54

You may have missed Kewcumber around mumsnet for the past week, she has, sadly, been in hospital. They are trying to increase her platelets but it has been a long process. She is keeping her spirits up but missing her ds immensely although her dm has been bringing him to see her every day. For any of you that would like to see the side-effects of blood not clotting I've posted a couple of pictures of Kewcumbers arms on my profile (don't look at if you have a needle phobia!).

She is having the best treatment possible and is hoping that the double dose of everything (trust Kew!) that she is being given at the moment will ensure that she is home (and mumsneting!) very soon.

I'm sure she'll be updating you with all the gory details once she is online.

AtheneNoctua Fri 19-Sep-08 16:11:44

poor kew. Please tell her I've been thinking of her. But swamped at work and haven't been able to go visit, unless she wants a visitor at about midnight.

But, I have thought of her loaads. Am really wanting to know what is wrong too. It sounds very scary.

Hope she is better and home very very soon.

xxxx for the gherkin.

fucking hell, wondered where she was with her words of wisdom. get well girl x

jojosmaman Fri 19-Sep-08 16:37:08

MrsRecycle- Do they know what it is that's causing it? Only this sounds similar to what my mum experienced and she was diagnosed with Aplastic Anemiea a couple of years ago.

Hope Kew gets well soon
