I've been meaning to share this with all of you.....My daughters specialist let us know that he recently scoped an 11 mo. old and is certain it is crohn's. He said this is the youngest he has ever seen!
As long as I'm posting, I'll let you all know that Sierra is doing a little better. The steroids are helping for now. We have to meet with the pediatric surgeon this week to try to figure out a payment plan. They say she needs to have a little over a foot at the illeum removed. I am going to go through the posts to try to see what to expect, recovery time, etc. What is your input on applying for disability for her?
Love & laughter to all of you!
