with my fingers crossed i am writing to say that yesterday and today my daughter seems to be turning around
for the better. while awaiting test results she increased her colazol to a previous dose and began taking the xifaxin again.
she was so tired the first days there-and has gotten out now to see her surroundings and meet other students.
thanks for listening to me, and supportting me!

     Glad to hear she is feeling better.  Does she have prednisone with her?  I always take it along when we go on trips..just in case.

Update 11/03/08...finally in remission!!  Hope I don't jinx myself.  Off the prednisone since 11/01/08...now see if I can stay off for longer than two weeks.  Other meds: 6MP (75 mgm), colazal (6 per day), Benicar and Toprol (high blood pressure meds), Probiotic (2 per day), fish oil capsule and multi-vitamin and calcium with vitamin D.

I think your daughter will do o.k. She needs some adjustment time because travel is very physical & she's now in a different time zone. Getting out & meeting other students & experiencing the sights of London will be exciting & hopefully take her mind off UC worries. Maybe you can go over at the end of the semester & have her show you her favorite places. Definitely keep us posted. / Old Hat (nearly 30 yrs with left-sided UC ... [etc.])
