For months now my sweet little boy has had blood in his stool (diarrhea) and the docs have been trying to find the cause. We've done numerous labs of blood work and stool samples and finally 2 weeks ago a day at the hospital for a colonoscopy and biopsies of the large intestine. They discovered he's got a disease called Ulcerative Colitis. Unfortunately, there's no cure for this and it's something he'll have the rest of his life. He's on a course of Steroids for a few weeks then back to the hospital for an Upper GI where they'll look for Crohn's Disease in his small intestine. As terrible as it all sounds, and is, Kruz is still your typical ornery, mischievous, playful two-year old.
Here he is after his day at the hospital listening to his tunes and taking care of Kori's baby doll for her.
After what has felt like years away, hidden under some obscure rock, we're back. The past year has brought what felt like more downs than ups, more curses than blessings, more wrongs than right but through it all we grew. We found out we were much stronger than we knew.
Thank you to those few of you who encouraged us. Your words of support and prayers were and are so appreciated.
And for those who kicked us when we were down - what goes around comes around but we'll be there for you anyway because that's just the kind of people we are.
