Hematology Case study
Candy is a 13 year old who lives with her father and younger sister. Her mother died when Candy was 6 years old and her sister was 4 years old. Her father works a 12 hour shift full time to support himself and his daughters, and Candy makes sure she and her sister get to school each morning, take care of the house after school, and prepare their father’s dinner so he can eat as soon as he gets home from work. All three are very close and on his days off, Candy’s father is very devoted to his children. Candy began her menses when she was 11 years old and experiences regular periods every 28 days. She has excelled in school, being on the honor rolls consistently for the past 3 years. The past semester Candy’s school performance began to decline and she has been complaining of being tired “all of the time.” Her father notes that Candy “looks pale” and makes an appointment for Candy to be seen at the clinic .
