12/15/2016 double ear infection, losing weight
12/29/2016 lost weight and completed amoxicillin for the ear infections on 12/15/16 (immune system was down)
Injected with GARDASIL 9 In conjunction with 4 month immunizations.
12/31/2016 took to ER for fever, pallor, weakness, lethargy. Doctor said rotate Tylenol & Motrin, we are looking at “fear of the unknown.” Go home & come back in 2 days if fever continues.
Go back to ER due to fever, pallor, lethargy & weakness continued. Doctor calls nurse practitioner on pediatric floor who stated fever was from the immunizations Aniya was suppose to get & the immunizations she was not suppose to get, go home, give Tylenol rotate with Motrin & come back if fever continues.
1/3/2017 fever stops
Consulted a new pediatrician (@Airline Pediatrics-Dr. Boone, retired MD- filling in for the week) for Aniya. Complained about Aniya feeling weak in trunk and lower extremities along with decreased appetite, lethargy & pallor. Doctor stated “baby’s fine.” Asked for a referral to neurologist, doctor said no.
Baby in Motor vehicle accident. ER runs zero testing despite being aware of the stress from Aniya’s vaccine overdose & stress from the motor vehicle accident. ER documents falsely states Aniya was crawling on medical exam table.
Took Aniya to pediatrician @Airline Pediatrics (Suresh Pathikonda) AGAIN due to Aniya remains weak with a decreased appetite. MD states she’s fine, normal & “it’s society who has you concerned.” Go home. I reported to this doctor I had a neurologist appointment for Aniya the next day in the Woodlands. He asked what doctor and said let him know what they say.
Doctor diagnosis Aniya with anorexia, put it in the chart 21 days later, but did not tell Anita. Orders no interventions.
Dr Staci king @TCH in The Woodlands sees Aniya. This doctor confirms & verified all abnormal findings Anita had been complaining about to the previous doctors & hospital. Doctor orders physical therapy, extensive lab work & urine output to have done IMMEDIATELY!!
Dr. King calls Anita & stated Aniya had low sodium (117) and needed to be admitted into hospital immediately. Anita drove Aniya to TCH.
2/17/2017 to 2/24/2017
Hospitalized @TCH and released with NG tube
Suresh Pathikonda saw Aniya for her post follow up hospitalization visit. He ordered labs to check sodium (normal sodium) checked weight (Aniya gained weight) and he instructed me not to insert the NG tube because he wanted Aniya to feed by mouth & instructed me I needed to give my baby a bottle despite me telling him Aniya will not take the bottle. He didn’t care.
3/7/2017 labs done. Sodium normal but BUN & glucose were ABNORMAL so I re inserted the NG tube
Follow up @Airline Pediatrics suresh Pathikonda instructed me AGAIN to discontinue NG tube and keep trying to give Aniya bottles, try NG tube feeding with a syringe and tube inside of mouth/assisted feeding which didn’t work. He also ordered me to bring Aniya for weight checks every other day which I did. He instructed me to give Aniya vegetable oil in her baby foods which I never did.
3/8/2107 to 3/17/2017 DAILY WEIGHT CHECKS – weight was up and down.
Aniya had constipation & fever & cough. Notified doctor on call by phone who instructed to give prune juice and take Aniya to doctor for fever & cough the next day if continues.

Last day labs were checked, several were abnormal. Labs were never re-checked, Aniya was sent home. Anita was not informed of lab results.
Second opinion at Dr. Braga’s office. Aniya was now experiencing tremor like shakes which was reported to Dr Braga.
Decided not to see Dr. Braga anymore because he stated he would only allow Aniya to see a GI specialist & not an Endocrinologist. Anita felt Aniya needed to see an endocrinologist due to her history of losing sodium for unknown reasons.
Back to Airline Pediatrics. Weight check and follow up. Same weight as 3/24
Aniya has an EEG at TCH. Reported to be normal. Anita questions results.
Shake like tremors, that were noticed by Early Childhood Intervention Case worker.

Aniya starts crawling.
Outpatient ultrasound ordered by Airline Pediatrics pediatrician to look at spine. Spine was perfect.
Dr Staci King (neurologist) calls and tells Anita that Aniya’s sodium is low AGAIN & advised Anita to take her to TCH immediately. Anita did as instructed & was livid due to no one notifying me sooner. They allowed 9 days of negligence to go by while Aniya suffered in grave danger.
MRI done @TCH
TCH stated results NORMAL Which was later found ABNORMAL due to a pituitary cyst was found growing on Aniya’s pituitary gland.

TCH social worker Jennifer stansbury notified CPS that Aniya may have a “rare rare disease which could result in death” but still does not mean she is safe with mom or grandma.
Aniya wrongfully placed in foster care #2 and is given strict standing orders to have done if Aniya falls ill with a runny nose, fever, decreased appetite or anything. CPS did not reveal those orders to mom. Unsure if foster parents were aware either.
