Brenda was admitted last night with leg pain edema and infiltrated fluid in lungs. It all stared like flu like symptoms. I will update you again in a few days I pray that this is not like her last attack in august.

We found that printing off the information from this site from the Mayo clinic invaluable (Disorder Resources). Ambulance through to all medical staff took it extremely seriously and the information interesting, it also helped them DO THE CORRECT THINGS. Hope this helps? Ruth (Christchurch New Zealand)

also on this website for SCLS under disorder details there is a fact sheet about SCLS including treatment and tests that we have printed and have given to doctors and my brother keeps a copy with him for ER and EMT personell...very thorogh and helpful but you must insist that they read it immediately prior to treatment or as soon as possible..I also would try to have the doctors call Dr Greipp at Mayo in Rochester, MN if they are confused. My prayers are with youl.
