Good News and Bad News

Yesterday we got up and drove the hour into the city before the sun came up for my daughter's EGD and colonoscopy.

It was a quick procedure that lasted about an hour. The dr came out and gave me pictures he had taken of her insides. EWW! HE sat with me to talk about what he had done and what he had found. He said the good news was he found nothing obviously wrong. Her colon, large intestines, throat and stomach are perfect. No signs of Crohn's, cancer, IBD, ulcers or polyps. Nothing life threatening or needing surgical treatment! AWESOME NEWS! But that is also the bad news...he found nothing that is causing the pain and bleeding. He took biopsies just to 100% rule everything out.

So now he is leaning towards a metabolic disorder or a small intestine issue. We go back in 4 wks unless the biopsies come back abnormal. He will do a breath test for the metabolic disorders and he wants her to swallow a camera pill so he can image the small intestine. We talked about how since birth all 3 of my children have had times of 'sweet breath' like someone waking from anesthesia or something fermented. The Dr said that does sound like a metabolic disorder esp since all 3 have it.

It is a load off my mind and heart that the really bad thing are ruled out.
Praise the Lord!
