ucmama - we all understand freaking out at the sign of blood, especially when it has been absent for a while. However, don't totally freak out yet! See if it is still around tomorrow. It could just be a hemi or fissure. Sorry, I shouldn't say "just" 'cause those can be issues in themselves...
Only introduce one new thing at a time - that way you can tell which item is working.
Imuran can take three months or more to take effect. Sometimes patients are lucky and it only takes weeks. Sometimes it takes months.
Have you checked out the dragonpak website? It's a site for parents of children with IBD. There are some parents here and we would never, ever tell you not ask questions! However, you might find even more answers and support - especially from the parent side - there.
Take a deep breath! Don't let the crazy's get you :) Hang in there.
