    These cases are heartbreaking and so difficult for not only your daughter but all those that she is close to.

    I'm sure that the hospital team are doing all they can for her pain levels whilst she is in hospital. Her situation sounds confounding in that she has multiple abnormalities, although bloodwork is normal… I'm sure it has been said already, however, being positive around her and showing her as much support as possible may be the best thing you can do.

    All the best, hope things turn around soon.
