test results

No fun and creative blog post here.  Just sadness for our Keandre.

We received the results from his endoscopy and biopsies last MondayHe has been diagnosed with moderate Eosinophilic Esophagitus (EE), severe Eosinophilic Gastritis (EG), and mild Eosinophilic Gastsroenteritis (EGI).  This is not good news, especially since we are very careful about his food allergies and that is not likely to be the cause of so much inflammation and damage.  (When allergies are the cause, it is much more hopeful.)

There are no easy answers here.  This condition is difficult to treat.  Without a miracle, Keandre's struggle with daily stomach pain, reflux, and vomiting will not be over any time soon.

We are grieving for our son.  We are also trusting that God will carry us through this struggle and sustain us when we're worn out, like we are right now.  We appreciate your prayers.

Your family is always in my prayers. I know this is rough right now, and I do not know exactly what to say except that your family has always been a blessing to me. The spirit of God comes through your family when I am around you. It is "that thing" that people don't recognize. It is "something about you." I am praying with you that God gives the doctors wisdom to provide the best treatment for Keandre. I will also pray for rest for your family and an overflowing blessing in your lives. This is just a season...it will pass...and the testimony on the other side is going to be AMAZING!! We are overcome by our testimonies. Our God is greater, Our God is stronger, Our God is healer. We are expecting God to overflow in our lives and I will pray for an overflowing healing for yours. Much Mocha Love and love in general. Charalotte

I am sorry to hear that there is no quick solution or end in site. It's so hard to watch our little ones in pain and not be able to help. I pray you will all find peace and that you will find ways to manage his conditions and keep him going strong.
