My kids both have von willebrands and subsequent low platelets and low factor 8 from VWD my DH has ITP (although I think he has VWB just not correctly diagnoses ideopathic simply means they haven't figured out whats causing your issue)
although I limit hard contact sports like football and la Cross--- I DO NOT LIMT MOST STUFF they both plat soccer they both swim they both play teeball they are in gymnastics they go to camp they jump off swing sets they run and play and have fun... I will not let this stop them from living a fun life they also hike fish
I've had MANY bloody noses and one broken hand-- all in all not bad at all they are 4 and 6 as they get around 10 I may have totake them our of soccer and switch to soft ball?? maybe??
ITP is only as limiting as YOU make it
and BTW my dh did for many years play rugby...he's ok
