DD 12 was taken to ED last week due to some major bruising that we were

A: unsure how it occurred
B: wasnt sure if there was  a potential fracture etc

DD 12 is severely ASD, ADHD, ID & non verbal with an extremely high pain threshold.

They decided to do some blood tests after informing DHS and one of them has come back that her platelets are taking longer to stick - they have emailed a specialist to decide if they need to do more tests.

Does anyone here have any idea about what they are talking about as they wouldnt explain much to me and now I am sh*tting myself as they want her back in tomorrow.

They keep asking about nose bleeds, gum bleeds, bleeding from bowels (I dont have any idea as she is toilet trained and wont let me near her when she is on the toilet)
