Belated Update on the Doodle #CrohnsFighter


At the end of January we met with Sophie's GI and Dermatology doctors.  By the time we got in to see her dermatologist the psoriasis that had been so miserable for her on her face had all but disappeared.  We got a prescription for hydrocortisone for her face and we upped her probiotic dose from 1-2 a day to 2-3 a day.  Once we upped the probiotic her psoriasis cleared completely.

That made our decision so easy on how to move forward with her CD treatment --- because the Remicade has worked so well for the last 4 years and we are currently controlling her psoriasis with ProBio5 we will continue on the current path.  She received her last Remicade treatment on 2/1 and we have seen no signs of an outbreak anywhere.  This is fantastic news!

Her current treatment plan is Remicade every 8 weeks, 2-3 ProBio5 daily along with a large dose of Calcium and Vitamin D.



I love that laugh!  She is so strong, so brave, so beautiful and so incredibly happy!


Oh - ya! Did a little blog maintenance/update!  Looks good - right?  #HivoryFamily
