Quick Update


Those of you that have been reading here the past few months know that my son has been going through some health issues. Well, we finally has an answer. He has Crohns disease. Overall he appears to be responding to treatment pretty well and seems to be bouncing back. The biggest hurdle he has to overcome is gaining weight. He had lost about 10 pounds in the last few weeks before we got a diagnosis and when we finally got to the hospital he was pretty malnourished. It's been an interesting few weeks and we have been learning a lot. So, my posting this summer might be pretty sporadic (I was able to schedule about a week and a half while we were in the hospital) because the doctor we see lives about four hours away from us. I am not sure how much we will need to go and see him this summer but I am imagining quite a bit!

Thanks for all you kind words!
