Hi, I'm sorry I don't have a prognosis, but I think you are very brave and must be very exhausted. A very good friend of mine died in 1998 at 31 years old of Beta Thalassmia, or more so the complications of caridomyopathy/heart failure. She was one of those people that touched everyone in such a special way, almost like an angel, and I'm sure you are too. I miss her very much and wish that I had asked her more about her disease. Can you tell me what SQUID is?
