My granddaughter started to show sickle symptoms as she approached her 2nd birthday. Since then she has been to the hospital a number of times the last time was her left arm had swollen to twice its size and she would not allow anyone to touch it
The Doctors stated that they did not know what was causing it as there was no clotting of blood and there was no bone damage so they stated it may be an inflammation of some sort. They gave her antibiotics and it eventually got back to normal. I am still puzzled though as to why.
