Hello PLEASE, I was wondering how your daughter is doing on all of those medications listed in the signature? With all of those on board, are her symptoms actually in remission?

Hi Please,
I don't know if fish oil helps, but I don't think it hurts. This may be coincidence, but today has been the best day in a while and we have recently added L-Glutamine, and Georges Aloe Vera Juice, because they have been listed as positive influences . To an outsider, it sounds like we are grabbing at straws, but like I said, today has been a good day. Colonoscopy Monday, so will have an update then. Take care of yourself, and your daughter. It is sort of comforting to know we are not alone.

Hi PLEASE, how is your daughter doing? Are the meds working? I'm still amazed at the list of rectal meds. Can she tell which is working and develop a sense of what works for her? That's something that can take a while to figure out.

On the fish oil question -- I tried it briefly once and did not see a difference. But perhaps it was too brief. Also, those pills can be daunting and I decided it wasn't something I wanted to commit too. I had too many pills already. :)

I really hope that your daughter is seeing some improvement. It's can be a long and frustrating ride to get to remission. But when you start to have days when you notice it getting better it makes all the difference! Just to see it start to turn a corner is really encouraging.
So I hope she's at that point. If not, it will come soon!
