Baby born without any blood

Olivia Norton stunned doctors by surviving after being born with almost no haemoglobin at all.

Baby Olivia was white as a sheet when she arrived with a condition so rare that her name will be added to medical journals. Doctors had given her only two hours to live, but thanks to a rapid response and emergancy transfusions she slowly turned a healthy pink colour and was soon on the mend. "Olivia was my first baby, so I didn't really know what to expect - but I certainly didn't think she'd be that colour," said her mother.

"Oliva, now six months, was born completely white because she had such a low count of haemoglobin - the chemical which carries oxygen in red blood cells - that it could not officially be classed as 'blood'."

I am Latwii, and am once again with this instrument. As we were saying, there are instances which are not favorable to such a transfer of this vital fluid from one entity to another, for there are various, shall we say, patterns or parts of an entity’s pattern of being of the bodily complex which are transferred in this process that may be detrimental to another. Wow, does that mean if I put some of Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s used oil in my car, my car will be just as fast as his and I could become a professional race car driver? If you would rather die than receive a life saving transfusion from a ... [More]
