Sophie Update

I spoke with the nurse from Sophie's GI doc's office several times today and unfortunately they did not get the stool study results back from the lab today.  So, we are in a holding pattern for now.  The doctor does not want to do the colonoscopy before absolutely ruling out a parasite or C. difficile.  Her symptoms have lasted longer than either of those would typically last but Jim and I are still hoping that it is one of the aforementioned culprits.  We are not doing the blood work until we do the colonoscopy so that they can do it while she is under anesthesia.  Like I said - HOLDING PATTERN. 


In the meantime Sophie's symptoms are about the same:
urgent diarrhea
large amount of pooling blood with each stool
8-10 bowel movements per day
tummy ache before BM


Yesterday while at swim practice Sophie became upset when she had to get out of the pool 2x to urgently go to the restroom.  She said "Mommy, I am tired of going doop (Sophie's word for poop) ALL OF THE TIME".  I don't blame her - it is not fun!  I think we are more than ready for some answers.

I will update as soon as we know more.

Thank you all for your kind words, good thoughts and many prayers.

Thanks for the update Laura. I keep praying Psalm 91 for your family. I can't even begin to imagine what you are going through but I do know that God is faithful, always, and He is holding you all through this.
