Prednisone and Rowasa finally!

My 12 yr old has been on Pred for 2 weeks (was 60mg now 40mg) and some blood returned, so frustrating. It is fresh drops, so from very low. The GI, finally, after over 1 year has agreed to let us try Rowasa. Holy cow, I am excited and hoping it helps heal that stubborn area! Just had to share!

Yay! It's always hard to add a medicine, but oh so great when it does the trick! I hope it works and everything is better soon!
