Back to Square One...

Dr. Irani wants us to resume the elemental diet, and cancel the food trial for now. She will re-assess things when we go back to see her in three weeks to do the allergy testing. It's possible that his esophagus still hasn't healed completely, and that is what caused the broccoli to come back up... or he's allergic to broccoli? Arrgghh!

I'm sure I'm not the first mother of a child with EE to say it, but a cure for this can't come soon enough, and if a cure is asking too much, a more reliable treatment plan would be good for sure! I know there are people out there right now researching and doing the best that they can with this, so patience is what we will have to practice!

I'm reminded of Romans 5: 3 We also have joy with our troubles, because we know that these troubles produce patience. 4 And patience produces character, and character produces hope. 5 And this hope will never disappoint us, because God has poured out his love to fill our hearts.

I will be reminding myself of this often these next few weeks, there is good in everything God plans for us even when we cannot see it.

    God doesn't ever give us more than we can handle so you're good. Give up your difficulties to him and he will help you through it.
    Psalm 55:22 Cast you cares upon the Lord and he will sustain you...He WILL NEVER let the righteous fall.
    I love you, and Mark, and my handsome boy Nathan. ;)

  2. It will start to get easier, I promise. And yes! I would be willing to bet that his little stomach and esophagus are just a mess right now. Give that gorgeous boy a huge hug and one for yourself as well. Have a good weekend, I'm sending prayers and tummy soothing angels your way:)

  3. Thanks for all of the good thoughts and kind words. Nathan was extra joyful last night when Mark picked him up from daycare! So the prayers and tummy soothing angels must have been surrounding him!
