I have never actually posted on this site but have read on it and many other sites. I am 18 years old and in November my beloved grandmother was diagnosed with MDS. The disease moved extremely fast and we went from needing only one transfusion to one transfusion a day. I read a lot of helpful information from this site on things we should do. Sadly she would not eat and slowly deteriorated until she caught pneumonia and within 24 hours she passed. I just came back to say thank you for the information and to say god bless to anyone who has this disease.
