her blood count was low so they gave her a blood transfusion yesterday. today they said that her count is lowering again and that she may be bleeding internaley. but dont know where.
They want to also shock her heart to see if they can get it back on rythem?

I don't see a diabetes question in your post instead asking for a prognosis.
