A little scare…but we’re okay!


My daughter has a condition called HSP.  It was diagnosed about 3-4 months ago after I noticed lots of bruising on her legs that weren’t going away.  Luckily the blood tests came back normal, so the Dr. knew it was HSP.  We have been to tons of visits and to a specialist.  We do monthly urinalysis exams for our specialist, and have to keep up with her blood pressure.  It’s a lot!  It is a condition that begins to effect the kidneys, which is why she has had blood and protein in her urine.  It can eventually lead to kidney failure if it progresses that far, but usually doesn’t.  This week my daughter has been experiencing some other issues that can often be a symptom of the condition.  So I have spent my day in the doctor’s office getting checked out and doing labs.  Luckily the doctor said it just seems to be coincidence that she must have picked up a bug because her labs actually came back looking better than they had in the past.  We were pretty worried at first, but what a blessing for us to know that her condition is improving…at least for now.  This will eventually go away sometime within the year.  It’s just a waiting game really.  So for now we will just be taking some probiotics, and keep on doing our monthly lab work until further notice.

Thanks for reading!  God Bless!

  1. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog. An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.
