Its been 4 months ever since my daughter confirmed with Caffeys,she is on naproxen but no signs of improvement her body weight remains the same ever since her birth,her platelet count is more than 9.50 due to which drs are not giving even steroids which may further worsen her condition.she is been through severe pain and fever due to which she hardly sleeps.

my baby sarah fought brilliantly against all odds but she could not tolerate the hospitalized infection(septicemia)and died on 8th nov 09.she was admitted for caffeys symptoms but got infected,drs says this that,but i would say one thing before admission drs should know the patient or else why they have admitted my kid,simply to study the case or they dont want to loose study material.end of the day i have lost my darling.
