EJ's Scopes

EJ's scopes were this morning. Doc says his colon looks better now than the first time. There are a few apthous ulcers on his colon and a little bloody mucous that he thinks may be coming from those. That's all the good news. There does appear to be the beginnings of a vericese in his esophagus. This is one of the things that we were told about with his liver condition. The GI is going to show the results to the liver spec. but doesn't think we are any where near a concerning situation with that yet...so phew!!

So, for now at least, we are to stay the course with the 6mp and asacol. They want to retest bloods in a few weeks to see if his blood work nos. improve. If not, we may be trying new meds. or have to look closer at liver and spleen issues. GI mentioned metho this time, which was the first time I've heard him suggest that. The last time, I was under the impression that Remi would be the next stop. He also wants to consult the liver spec about this as well.

All in all, EJ still feels great. He was very hungry immediately after scopes. We're home and things are good. Hope things are going well with all of you!

Good deal! If you go the methotrexate route, we've been there (early arthritis days) and can share some suggestions if you need them. Glad to hear that boy is hungry!!!

Hey Dex!

That is so great to hear about his scope! YAY! What a relief for you all. I hope all continues to go that way Dex and his bloods improve.

Also good to hear he is eating you out of house and home.

Always thinking of you guys,
Dusty

Good for EJ! I am so happy to hear some good news!

I have to ask...how do they get a child to do the preps? I mean...a young child. I always wondered...

Hope he had something yummy afterwards.

Hey thanks everyone, he's doing great! Back to normal today.

@ Spingirl....EJ's prep is not as bad as an adult's prep. He took an oral laxative, no food for twenty four hours, then two suppository laxs. and the worst part is having to drink 8 oz. of Magnesium Citrate. It must be awful because he threw up the first part and had to start over. That stuff is almost like flushing out a pipe. It was in and out in half an hour. But he didn't have to drink the movi-prep or Go-Lightly or any of that stuff. EJ's eleven so old enough to be reasonable when he has to. I can't imagine forcing a toddler to go through that!! Afterwards, he wanted biscuits and gravy. I suggested something more bland but he ate it and had no problems.

Good to hear all is AOK Dex.

Okay, so what you call biscuits must be different to us 'cause I couldn't imagine having gravy with biscuits!!!

I've had that Magnesium Citrate - it makes me puke...can't keep it down either. New prep they have here in the states is a Miralax one. My GI would never let me do it but others told me they had it so I just did it once...never told him and he never knew...I felt so nervous...not telling him what I had done. Next time I just said he had to give it to me and all the other docs did it and he was being cruel...and he relented. It is still hard. The first few glasses are not so bad but after that...the salt starts getting to you...still the best one so far I've done. It all stinks. I must say...seeing he was just diagnosed recenlty and he's 11...just makes me cry...I have a 13 year old and so worried he is going to inherit my colon issues. I just can't even imagine what its like for a young child. Its not fair.

You're the one whose crackers!

As for the image, they look like scones! and I wouldn't have them with gravy either!

Ok, for the uncultured Aussie, tomatoes make sauce. Gravy is made with milk and flour and seasonings, and red-eye gravy is milk, flour and bacon grease!! It ain't good for you, but oh man, is it goooooooood!!!

Yeah, we put that on biscuits sometimes too!! Actually, I usually put jelly on mine. That is brown gravy which goes with red meat. We'd never eat that for breakfast.
