I dont understand why the docs cant figure out what is going on.  This forum is for medical issues dealing with Hepatitis C.  Maybe someone else could jump in and give you better advice here.  Is there a forum dealing with anemia here on medhelp?  Maybe go to a forum dealing with that.  I sure pray you get some answers and help with your baby's anemia quick!
