well, the day is done. There was a windchill factor of -47C this morning when we started out, and school was canceled. We got there fine, but had alot of trouble locating parking and I had to park a good distance away and walk. BRRRRR! I had lots of headgear along so only my legs got cold. I dropped Jerica off at the front door so she wouldn't have to walk.
The colonoscopy went well and quick. The Dr did not find what we were expecting. There was NO narrowing and everything looked fine!!??!! So he as well as we are very perplexed at what is going on. He wants her to stop the Remicade, put her back on the Imuran and increased her Amitryptaline in hopes that will help with her pain. He mentioned IBS, but I don't see how it can be that. I have that and it doesn't resemble her problems at all. He isn't changing her diagnosis of Crohns though.
We will still go for the MRI on Feb 25/08 and have a follow up appointment in approx 6 wks from now.
Thank your for your prayers of protection. Please continue prayer for clarity as to what is really going on and that they will pinpoint it so Jerica can be pain free.
