CANCER & BLOOD DISEASE


I see a 65-year-old gentleman who had a marked increase in bleeding tendencies. He would touch something and bleed. He was referred to me for further evaluation.

Mrs Johnson* lies passively in her hospital bed, entangled in wires and tubes. Two large tubes protrude from the right chest wall of her slender frame. They are connected in a Y shape to a white container, attached to the wall suction. There is minimal serosanguinous fluid in the chest tubes. It has been that way for 4 days. Her brown skin cannot camouflage the bruises over both wrists from the multiple blood draws and intravenous lines. Her veins are collapsed like the branches of a fallen tree. Her large eyes that were previously filled with joie de vivre are
