Jaedyn and I are in Anchorage for a few days while she sees a gastroenterologist and undergoes some testing for failure to gain weight and delayed puberty.  Yesterday she saw the doctor who is suspicious of Crohn's disease. 

This morning she had an MR endoscopy (nasty contrast didn't go down well).  Tomorrow she will have an upper and lower endoscopy (scopes).  Today we are doing the prep.  She had to take two little laxatives and now is having to drink an entire bottle of miralax split up in two 32 oz bottles of yellow or green gatorade.  Already her stools are clearing up.  I didn't think it would take too long since she hardly eats.

After she recovers tomorrow from her procedures, we will head back to Soldotna.  A storm is coming in tomorrow but I am hoping to beat it.  Our test got moved up from 1:00 pm to 10:30 am, which will be helpful to keep us from missing it... 

Thanks all for your good thoughts for Jaedyn and for your prayers.

Poor dear. I pray they find something helpful. Grace had those tests. Not fun.

Oh so sorry, those tests sound nasty. Praying that you find the results you need to get her feeling better.

Thanks, Jennifer and JoAnn. Jennifer, were the tests helpful for Grace in the long run?

having a child that is unwell is never easy, my thoughts and prayers are with you. I pray that all of these tests will bring some positive outcome, and that she will be healed of what ails her.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. We don't have any bears here in Australia but we do have lots of house cats in the neighbourhood which can really deter the birds.
Blessings to you
