In brief: Sickle cell and play

The activities that a patient with sickle cell disese can participate in depend on the individual and their baseline hemoglobin level.
Some patients get too fatigued to do anything that requires much exertion. Others can play b-ball as long as they stay well-hydrated. Encourage your 3rd grader to do what they are interested in, and modify their participation as needed based on your observations.
