About Me

My photo
This is a blog for my son. He has a rare auto immune disease that causes his body to attack food like it would a virus making it impossible for him to eat most any foods with out getting very very sick. This is a record of our ups and downs, doctor visits and procedures. Our trial and error life of finding out what foods are safe for our son to eat and eliminating the ones that are not from his life.

Last Minute

John has been having GI issues since we started the apple trial. Normally just stopping the food that is causing the symptoms is enough to clear up the symptoms in a short period of time. Sometimes that alone isn't enough and a round of steroids is needed to knock it out.

Dr M had discussed the possibility that John has a motility issue. Meaning his stomach doesn't empty quickly enough so food sits in his stomach readily available to come back up. Since we had stopped the apples and John was still having issues Dr. M decided to try an antibiotic to help with the motility issue. 
We've been on the antibiotic for three days now and he has gotten a lot worse.
I called Dr. M today to let him know and he wants to see John on Wednesday and put him on the schedule to have a scope done on Thursday morning.
He will take another biopsy and check to see if there is a build up of eosinophils. 
I will post again when we have news.

Until then, I'll leave you with some pictures from John's 19 month photo shoot. 

Thanks for reading and for your support!
