I didn't want it to end.
Ananiya has been diganosied with a rare genetic disease called "hemihypertrophy" This is where one side of her body grows faster then the other externally and internally. This disease puts her at high risk for tumors.
Every 3 months shes go's for tumor scans, every month meeting with orthopedics geneticists, and neurologists. She also has been diagnosed with gastroparesis- where the muscles that help empty her stomach have been partially paralyzed.
This can lead to infection, malnutrition, and complete paralysis of the stomach.
She has to see GI every 2 weeks and have ultrasound done every 3 months.
She also has extreme GERD, Cerebral Palsy, Chronic Lung Disease, hypercalcymia and low muscle tone. All of which need to see specialist of their own
