    I used to pray and pray for a bike and never got one. Later I learned that God doesn't work that way... so I went out and stole a bike and asked God for forgiveness.

    Thank you for letting me turn the tables on you, IMG SURVIVOR . But let's keep going... how to distinguish alpha from beta thalassemia? Who gets alpha and who gets beta? What is the Tx?
