Two weeks ago my little niece went for a sleepover at her grandmother’s house who happens to be my neighbour. She stopped by to come hang at my house too, but the whole saturday evening she was complaining about backpains. I made her some dinner, brought her some blankets and let her watch tv.
Sundaymorning she was still complaining about pain in her back and that’s when i started to be really nervous. “She doesn’t have sickle cell disease ain’t she”? “Shall i bring her to a doctor”? I’ve spoke to her grandmother and father and we decided to test her blood to see if she got sickle cell disease and she suffers the HBSC-form. It’s a less aggressive form then the HBSS-form that i got, but i’m glad that we were so alert and that the doctors in the hospital can now give her the proper treatment.
I wanna say to all my readers… watch out for sickle cell disease in your near surroundings very closely. Families who already have people with this condition should be extra carefull. I want to show you what can happen if people aren’t that carefull with this disease in my next vlog. Who are you going to bring to the doctor?
