5 years past KD bruising

Post by winter » Sun Dec 09, 2012 8:55 pm

I am curious if anyone out there is experiencing bruising more easily. My KD child seems to be covered in bruises in typcially locations forearms, shins, hips etc but my other children do not bruise like this. I took her to her ped, she checked her blood clotting factors, and made sure it wasn't anemia or other illness. He thought it might have to do with the capillaries being weak. She feel over our little dog and by the time we could look at her elbow it was bruised and her knee as well.

She has an anyeurysm calcified on her ankle that we are hoping to have removed in January. Dr. Burns does not think it is related when I emailed her. I wonder though if it is the veins being weaker though.
