GI update






Well Sammy and I went to see the GI specialist today. I can't say that I am happy with the results. In fact am worried, scared and sad. He mentioned several things that could cause the bleeding, but wouldn't really go into detail about treating them or what to do to make them better. I asked well what would the treatment be like, and he said "You are asking me to predict the future and I don't do that." So then I asked him what do the statistics show for treatment and he gave me the same speil. Anyways I just wanted him to tell me something I can do to make him better, and he couldn't. I asked him if there were dietary changes, or vitamins or anything like that but he said he didn't want to do any of that until we figure this whole thing out. So things he mentioned today were: Crohn's Disease, ulcerative colitis, polyps, a viral infection. He said kids with his type of immunodeficiency are more at risk for the colitis than others. So I looked that stuff up and it is just scary. So now we are going to do a colonoscopy:-( under general anesthesia which scares me so much. I know as always that God is in control but I just am scared. I don't want him to go through any thing else. I just want him to have a normal life, I want him to run around and play and not have to have the medical field play such a significant role in his life. Please pray for him.
In other news Sophia has gotten my cold and is a little crabby and very snotty. Still smiley and cute for the most part, but I don't enjoy snotty nose kids:-) Here are some pics from the last few days, Sammy helping Daddy, one of his favorite activities.

I hate snotty noses! Blakley has had major runny nose for two days - snot is everywhere. Yuck! I am praying for your little guy! Just take one step at a time.
