Update. x

Not been on for a while but thought would just update on Kian. Seems to be doing well at the minute, still on the metronidazole but only until May, hes so glad to be coming off it, not because of any side effects but the taste! The area where he had procedure for the fissure is healing so well now, still applying the manuka at night time though too but looks as if nearly healed. Bloods in couple weeks time and 6 monthly check due beginning of June. Fingers crossed it all stays this way for the foreseeable future. xx

I am so glad things are going well for your son. I got crohns at age 61 and thank God everyday that I was blessed to get it so late in life. I use to be really mad when I got it just after retiering but not anymore. I would give my life to take crohns away from one young child. My heart goes out to all the kids AND your son living with crohns. I know God has good things in life for your child. I hope your son keep the good health he has going on right now.

Glad things are going well. We are still using the honey on a little area that stubbornly refuses to heal! I think the doctors are wondering why I am still ordering it.
