Still waiting for the "after this."

Well, some people say no news is good news. I am not sure that I would always agree!

After a colonoscopy/endoscopy, 40 blood tests and an MRI, we are still no closer to a diagnosis (unless you count "severe IBS"). Biopsy results will be ready next week, but the doctor did not sound like she expected anything significant. All the while, I am trying to make sense of living with a chronic undiagnosed condition that loves to rear it's ugly head way too often!

I am going to meet with a nutritionist tomorrow morning--in hopes that I can figure out a solution for my overly thin frame (I believe I now weigh what I did at 13).

Please keep praying if the Lord would so lead you. One woman asked me if I thought this was a spiritual attack--it could be, if I allow it.

Praying for you Summer and wisdom for the doctors. I cannot imagine how hard this is on you and your family. I pray for healing in Jesus name. I have been reading your blog for some time now and know that you will use this struggle for God’s glory. Just a thought, have the doctors mentioned Crohn's disease? My father in law thought he may have parasite after mission to Africa, but the doctors diagnosis ended up being Crohn’s disease. Take care and God Bless...
