He was very compassionate, especially later in his life, for people who were suffering, since he knew what real pain was.

It seemed that he thought often about his own death, because he wished for a simple memorial of stones in the forest.

He loved military life and his favorite times were with his father observing the troops when he was 11/12.

He expressed that wish for a memorial when everybody thought he was dying in Spala 1912. Wouldn´t you be thinking of death if you had a disease nobody could cure?

I didn't know that about Alexei. Interesting...I guess being in any of Alexei's situations, whether it's a disease or later on in his life, imprisonment, etc. would make a child somewhat morose. Thank God there's a cure for hemophilia now! Sad that any child has to think about death like that, including Alexei.

As far as I know there isn't a cure for hemophilia. With special treatment hemophiliacs are able to live a "normal" life but they still have to be careful. But I'm not an expert on this subject and I could be wrong.

You are completely right! There is no cure for it because its a gene deficiency. Even today you have to be careful though medicaments can give you a quite normal life.

There's really no cure? Wow! At least there are the meds one can use, though. Do people commonly die from it anymore or does the medication take care of it every time?

Though there is no cure for haemophilia, it can be controlled with regular infusions of the deficient clotting factor. In Western countries, common standards of care fall into one of two categories: prophylaxis or on-demand. Prophylaxis involves the infusion of clotting factor on a regular schedule in order to keep clotting levels sufficiently high to prevent spontaneous bleeding episodes. On-demand treatment involves treating bleeding episodes once they arise. Prophylactic treatment, however, resulted in average costs of $300,000 per year.

It's "under control" today, but there are a lot of complications which can occur, for example internal bleeding or adverse reactions to clotting factor treatment

That's interesting. Still pretty hard to live with, from what I've gathered!

BTW and which I find interesting: If a female gives birth to a haemophiliac child, either the female is a carrier for the disease or the haemophilia was the result of a spontaneous mutation. Until modern direct DNA testing, however, it was impossible to determine if a female with only healthy children was a carrier or not. Generally, the more healthy sons she bore, the higher the probability that she was not a carrier. If a male is afflicted with the disease and has children with a female who is not even a carrier, his daughters will be carriers of haemophilia. His sons, however, will not be affected with the disease. The disease is X-linked and the father cannot pass haemophilia through the Y chromosome.

Wow that's pretty complicated. I saw a guy on a TV show some time ago who had hemophilia and he looked quite healthy but I still could see bruises on his arms and I was shocked, because I didn't expect to see somebody who actually has that illness. I'm really glad that today people with that illness can live a normal live.

I have a friend that has haemophilia! Sometimes he didn't go to classes because he was at the hospital doing (oh I forgot the name E_E). Anyway, his name is Davi and he's very healthy now ^^
He's very white,though. hehe

I'm glad to read that he's healthy now. ;-) I worked in a hospital and I met people who were really ill but they were full of life and hope. That was really touching.

That's rather complex, GD Valeria, but interesting to read about. I'm glad your friend is ok now, Tasia!

So Alexei would have produced healthy heirs.
