My 4 year old gets frequent nosebleeds. It started out once every few months. Then about once a month and now just in this month, it's been 3 times. Last night/this morning, around 2am, she wakes up saying she has a lot if boogers so I tell her to clean her nose. As she's doing it she tells me her bed is wet so I'm thinking, "damnit she peed." So I get up and see this huge, okay not huge but about the size of softball, maybe a bit bigger, spot of black stuff. So I get my husband's flashlight and shine the light on the spot and it was blood. Bright red blood. Her face was covered in blood, the tissue had blood on it, it was on her arm, everywhere. Usually when her nose bleeds, it's from one nostril, this time it was from both. I'm really starting to worry. If the weather isn't bad tomorrow, I'm going to try to get her into the doctor to see if they can test her blood for anything. My aunt told me some lady she works with had a son that was the same way and it ended up being Leukemia.
What do you ladies think?
