kept in a room were they were doing some hand sanding ona old door to
repaint. Simptoms are similar as in rat poisoning. Every place were
he was given fluids SQ he as severe hemorrageing and massive
bruiseing. Paint was tested for lead an is positive. ANY HELP in this
case is welcome. will be doing a complete Blood chem on monday. if
lead levels are high we will start EDTA calcuim.
