Okay cousins, our family suffers from Hereditary Spherocytocis in a big way. I have been trying to figure out which ancestor gave it to me. Surprisingly there was a post on the Columbiana Co., Ohio list from someone else with this disorder. I have checked the names she gave me and found no connection yet, I think this is only because we have not found our connection. HOWEVER she sent me the e-mail from someone else that also e-mailed her. This person had a Orshia Nelson and Verna Dray. Anyone able to tell how these people fit into our line?????
Also she has a George H Johnston as well as a John Johnston. I have not yet been able to figure out who Elizabeth Johnston's dad was, so they may connect to her. The point is it has to be in one of these two lines. You should have a blood test to see if you have it. If you have had a history of anemia, gall bladder and spleen problems in your family - especially. We have had some very sick people and a few deaths caused by this disorder, and we have people that have lived for years and not known they had it and passed it on to a child. You may be fine and your grandchild's spleen may suddenly rupture.Your body is constantly at war destroying your blood. You can do a search on your computer and read up on it. This disorder messes up your bones. Arthritis goes hand in hand with it. It causes gallstones. My 12 year old daughter had them when they removed her spleen and gallbladder.Calcium stones. Everyone connected to these lines needs to find out and it is not a very easy thing to find, the doctor has to be good and has to do a cell fragility test.- Elsetta
