If : If in fact the girl in question was given an overdose of morphine at the hospital that caused her to fall into a coma, then it would be documented in her medical record, and the facts will speak for themselves. As far as the parents not getting information; this should not be tolerated. They can request to speak to a social worker or patient advocate. If they dont speak english then they will be accomodated. They should not stand silent. They have a right to know what is going on with their daughter regardless of their citizenship. I wish the best for the patient and family.

Blisters under: Toenails are quite common in sports participants. If you're able to drain it, apply a topical antibiotic and wrap it in a band aid, that's about the best you can do short term. You might want to check on the size of the soccer boots. If too small, they can be making things worse. Also, i hope the coach/trainer has them wearing running shoes for the pure running workouts.

She might try wearing two pair of socks on each foot and see if that helps. This was something I was taught back in high school by my coach and it worked for me. ( to prevent the blisters, not treat them.)

Estrogen excess: Endometrial thickening is usually due to excess estrogen effect on the uterine lining or infrequent ovulation. A polyp, submucus fibroid or (less commonly) an endometrial cancer can cause an abnormally thickened endometrial lining.
