    we got in early. we didn't have an appointment till the 21st, but there was a cancelation.
    Basically, they took lots of info, took 5 vials of blood, and she has to do a bunch of stool samples to check for bacteria, parasites, etc. They want to rule that out first. She will be going in for a colonoscopy and a scope down her throat too, but we don't have that appointment yet. She gets put out for that, PTL! They will also do a biopsy. This is consider day surgery. So glad she is seeing a childrens GI. It is a lady doctor and JErica seems to like her so that is good. She feels more comfortable with a lady considering the area that we are talking about.
    Just thought I'd give an update to what I know so far. I guess after all is said and done we will then know for sure if it is Crohn's or what.

    I'm so glad you were able to get in early and get the process started with this Doctor. You need a specialist in this case and it sounds like you have a good one.

    I hope the tests can be done fairly soon. The not knowing is a big part of the stress.

    Taek Care.
