Another Update

Thank you so much for all of the prayers. My daughter finally got seen in the ER last night around 4:45 and the strange thing is that I woke up at that exact time and prayed. I did not here from them until around 6:30 this AM. The good news is that the inflammation seems to be confined to the lower part of the colon and there was no indication of infection. They have started her on some Meds(no steroids this time) and we are praising God for that! Her hemoglobin was also the highest that it has been in about 9 years, which is an absolute miracle of God. The highest it has been in that period of time was around 8.5 right after iron infusions. Going to the ER has enabled her to be able to see the new GI Dr where she lives now much sooner than anticipated. She will be having a follow up next Wed. I ask that you pray that she respond well to this medication and quickly. She is tired and weak, but doing well, and was so excited about the hemoglobin results. You see this is the best news we have ever received since she has had this disease, so she has had great progress and we are so thankful.

God is good all the time, and again I just want to say I am blessed beyond all I could think or ask. We have had several curves thrown at us this week, and God just keeps showing his faithfulness to us. Thanks again girls! Jackie

Hi, I am a first time visitor to your blog. I think it's no accident. My son has a diagnosis of ulcerative colitis and was symptom free for the last seven months, but had flare-ups recently. I will be praying for your family also.
