Hi my twin girls were born at 29 weeks on June 14th and the eldest has been battling infections for 3 weeks and the medical team have been unable to identify the cause of the infection. Her platelets disappear rapidly and she has now had more transfusions than I can keep track of. Edema is also an issue and she is swollen all over her body. Her tummy was so distended, they thought that there was an infection there and actually operated on her today, only to find nothing.
I'm desperately worried, please advise if you have any suggestions for causes and treatment.
