TRIBUTES paid to ‘lovable’ daughter who died of a blood clot after being sent home and told to take Calpol.
Tributes have been paid to young girl who tragically died from a blood clot which was the largest that doctors had seen in 20 years. Isabellaann Battiscombe, aged only seven years old initially became ill when she started to vomit. Mum Janine soon took her little girl to see the family GP, where she was told to give her rest and pain relief.
As Isabellaann’s condition worsened, Janine took her daughter to see a different GP this time, and was advised to take her to hospital. At first the young girl’s condition seemed to improve before it took a sudden turn for the worse and tragically she died in hospital only two days later.
The heartbroken family have spoken out and paid tribute to their young daughter. Janine spoke to the Sun online and said, “She was just a beautiful, happy, little girl.
“She just wanted to play with her brother all the time, everyday she went to school smiling.
“It’s just gobsmacking. I’m heartbroken.”
According to the Mayo Clinic about one third of people who have an undiagnosed pulmonary embolism do not survive it. A pulmonary embolism is when one of the lungs’ blood vessels becomes blocked, often by a blood clot. It is then possible for patients to suffer a cardiac arrest.
Sian Voyce, headteacher of Hywel Dda Primary School in Cardif, spoke of the young girl and said ,”We have known lsabellaann for many years, she was a kind little girl, with the most beautiful smile.
“We are all heartbroken.”
The family have set up a fundraising page through GoFundMe.
