Juliet Rose Pedersen's Medical Fund

Baby Juliet Rose, daughter of Corey & Jennifer Pedersen from Kodiak, AK has been fighting a mysterious illness since mid February when she was hospitalized with dehydration and kidney failure, stabilized in Anchorage, and sent to Seattle Children's Hospital for further kidney work up.

A month later, after numerous tests and a blood transfusion, Juliet was given the all clear to return home in late March.

Home in Kodiak for only 3 nights, Juliet began having liver issues and was sent back to Seattle Children's Hospital by way of Anchorage for treatment of a blood clot in her liver and swelling of the liver, bladder, and gall bladder.

Persistent eosinophils or "Hyper Eosinophilic Syndrome" is the diagnosis, which explains the issues with her internal organs. Many specialists have been consulted and her doctors are still working to find the cause of the high eosinophils.

Little Juliet is under close monitoring in Seattle while the blood clot is being treated with a 6 week course of an anticoagulant. Steroids are helping to reduce the eosinophils. The timeframe for going home depends on whether Juliet's eosinophils stay low as the steroid doses are gradully decreased. Several tests are still pending to understand what caused the high eosinophils and Juliet's mystifying illness.

Jennifer and Juliet will remain in Seattle so a team of doctors can keep tabs on Juliet during treatment and while waiting for test results. Big sister Cecilia and dad Corey are home in Kodiak.
