My good friend was admitted for double pnemonia. In addition she has low platelets, excessive protein in the blood, elevated liver enzymes, oxygen low blood, swollen spleen, sludge in the gall bladder. Columbus doctors want to do a kidney biopsey but with platelets below 42,000 there is a risk of uncontrolled bleeding. She has given 28 vials of blood for testing purposos and the doctors are perplexed.
Do these symptoms look familiar? Have any ideas?
