My 10 year old daughter with UC had her appointment with her GI today. Her labs were great and she has grown 1" and gained 1/2 lb. in 4 months!!! She is still the shortest in her class, but she is growing well! We get to keep doing what we are doing and she goes back in 4 months if all stays well!!
Just thought I would share our good news!!
I love this doctor!! She is around 72, so I worry she will retire soon (says she will keep working until her mind goes), but she is up on her game. She stays current and knows her stuff!!
