Latest Blood Work!!

I had upper and lower scopes in April, pain I thought was the Crohn's but turns out I had gastritis.

My scopes showed no active Crohn's, I almost hesitate to use the word *remission* since it has been so long, however.....

I had bloodwork done on May 29 and got my results. I could not be more excited!!!

H. Pylori - Negative!
WBC 6.9
RBC 4.7
ESR 9
CRP .91

I can not find where I listed my previous CRP & ESR levels, but these are way down. GI is doing another colonoscopy in October, a year from my surgery date. This is the first time I have felt "normal" in almost 5 years. I could cry with joy!!
