The bad news is the the lab results were good. We were hoping that they would find something in the stool study that would be causing Sophie's symptoms. Unfortunately, that was not the case so we are going forward with the colonoscopy and blood work on Friday.
She took her 1st dose of MiraLax tonight has 2 more doses tomorrow and is on a liquid diet starting at noon.
I am sure the scope will give us the answers we need but I'm a little overwhelmed at the thought of the diagnosis that we will receive.
I am praying - praying - praying! This old song comes to mind from Tim McGraw . . .
Take this very breath you gave me
Take the heart from my chest
I'll gladly take her place if you let me,
make this my last request
Please, please please - it's so damn unfair. I would so willingly take it all. Bring it on! I wish I could take it away from both Nate and Sophie.
Diabetes - I would take it from Nate in a heartbeat!
Crohn's Disease - please give it to me instead - I don't want my daughter to suffer any longer!
I'm sorry Laura. I was so hoping the labs would show something. We will pray for you all! I know how you feel- I'd take Averys place in an instant if I could. And it IS so unfair. But this I know--- you can do this. I know you can. And we will support you in any way we can! (((hugs)))
I've been sitting here for 5 minutes and I just don't know what to write. I want to say the right thing. I want to lift you up, I want to tell you I am so sorry you have to watch another child suffer, I want to make you feel lighter...and I want to make you feel strong.
There is still a chance for good news...I'm praying for that. And for strength for you and your family too. <3
Oh Laura, I am praying that you are strong, which I know you are. I am praying that it is all you can handle, cause I know you can. I am praying that Sophie heals, which she will after a diagnosis and help. Whatever comes your way, you can handle. I have true faith in that. You are sent love and hugs and positive thoughts.
