    anemia scare
    arod99 posted:
    my 16 month old daughter just got some blood work done and the results came back and showed she was anemic. We are very concerned, scared, and confused. I read up on this illness and from all the symptoms this illness may cause my daughter has not showed any of them. She is full of energy , eats very well, and her skin tone is normal. I know the blood work is right just because this is her second one after the doctor asked us to re-test to confirm the results. We are just very concerned that our daughter doesn't show any signs of having this illness but the blood work say's it all,right?
