Hi mouse waiters, doctors couldn't give me answer why this is happening to Gianna, they said it could be a form of Alopita, the blood work came back fine, now they are sending her for more bloodwork, as the doctors told me, the hair may or may not grow back, it may never happen again, or she can get even more patches or potentially lose all her hair. I am sorry that I don't have an answer yet, this is all very confusing and tough to deal with. Thank you everyone for Everything, I just hope sooner then later some doctor can tell me what and why this is happening. They told Gianna that they wanted to give her a shot in her head, needless to say that didn't happen. So he gave us a prescription for a topical to use on her head. Hopefully it will work. Will take her for the bloodwork this week.
Sorry you didn't get all the answers you wanted. Maybe this next round of bloodwork will give you the answers. Stay strong and we are all here for you guys! - Ariel42  252.7 #24 3:45PM
You have been on my mind all morning! I am so sorry you did not get a definitive answer, I know that is extremely frustrating!!! - mzdisnee  421.7 #14 3:46PM
Sorry you didn't get the answers you wanted. My husband has gone through different bouts of alapitia over the past years. His hair did grow back. They believe it was all stress induced and nothing medical. Continuing thoughts and prayers for you both. - MagicalFamily  57.8 #81 3:57PM
Just remember, everything they rule out is a positive thing! Hopefully you will either have more answers soon or the problem will resolve itself. My thoughts continue to be with you and your Gianna. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  746.1 #4 4:09PM
Thanks for posting been thinking of you all day. I know you don't have a definitive answer yet that you want but at least many things have been ruled out with the bloodwork. Take care and keep us posted. You are in my prayers. - Bakerjars  236.7 #28 4:22PM
I am sorry you didn't find out more! Thank you for lettings us know, I was wondering how it went. Stay strong. I am sending you my best. - cheekymouse  34.9 #107 4:30PM
So sorry you didn't get the answers you were looking for. Continued thoughts and prayers for you and Gianna! - flyingpenguin  9.5 #235 4:34PM
We will keep her in our prayers until we know all is right - jl42nato  19.4 #151 4:40PM
At least your first round of blood work came back ok. We will continue to think positively for you! Keep us posted! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #16 4:44PM
Sorry you didn't get something definitive today. There can be a number of reasons for hair loss in children but, as others have said here, the negatives you've gotten so far can be a good thing. Hang in there; I'm sure you'll learn something soon. Love & hugs! Keeping the prayers going! - SueBoo  18.6 #154 6:00PM
You are on our minds and in our prayers. - wchutch  229.2 #29 6:04PM
Praying in this case that no news is good news!! - mrsincredible  732.6 #5 6:16PM
We will all keep praying..my heart goes out to you! - justGoofin  128.5 #53 6:50PM
I will keep praying for you and your family. I hope they can give you more answers soon. Hang in there and I know its hard, but try and stay positive. We are here for you. - chicky5801  14.3 #180 7:00PM
No news is good news! Been thinking about her today! Hang in there... she is going to be just fine!! Makenzie sends a hug to Gianna and so do I!! Xo - MommyMouseof2  25.0 #131 7:05PM
Hopefully the second round of bloodwork gives you some kind of answer. It's very frustrating waiting. I hope everything gets back to normal soon. All our prayers are with you & Gianna. Keep tour chin up & try to keep a positive outlook. Be strong for each other. - Tinkerbell1265  440.4 #13 7:08PM
Thanks everyone, trying to stay positive, the unknown and waiting is the hard part - Yoho11  11.2 #209 9:07PM
I agree! NO news is good news! Were here for you Yoho! I would love to send Gianna a care package to keep her hopes up! Let me know if I can help in any way!! - TangledNdisneY  322.5 #20 9:53PM
She is still in my prayers! - ally  503.8 #10 12:00AM
Still praying for your little princess! Hang in there! - AJsDisneyPrincess  15.2 #175 4:01PM
That's good advice "everything ruled out is positive"! I am praying this was a one time thing only and grows back no signs ever again. - Polynesiangirl  98.3 #58 5:36PM
Yoho I know this doesnt help bc I am not a dr. however I work in a dermatology office and know a lot about alopecia.. Thats actually good news lab work came out normal! That hopefully means she does not have an auto immune disease! We see tons of children and adults with this. Hopefully its just a fluke and her immune system attacked that patch of hair! Topical steroids do help and the shots work wonders along with however I get it in her age who wants to do it! I wish you all the best and if you have any questions let me know. - Disneygal727  4.2 #508 8:21PM
