Rachel's Colonoscopy and Endoscopy Results

Rachel's awesome GI doctor called us tonight, Sunday, with the results from Rachel's colonoscopy and endoscopy.

He said that her biopsies were normal but because of the patches of irritation in her intestines and stomach that she could be developing Crohn's Disease. While he said it is too early to tell if that is in fact what is going on, he's going to go ahead and have her start taking an anti-inflammatory medication for the intestines to see if it helps.

I can only hope that this medication not only helps, but that she does not have Crohn's. I guess only time will tell on this one. I am happy that we finally have a path to try.
