It's back

Sam's been getting by pretty good since his surgery a few months ago but last night was the end of that.  His inflammatory bowel disease has flared up again and he is back to the nasty, mucus and blood filled stools.  I debated taking him to the ER last night but decided we will try to get through the weekend.  We will be at the oncologist's tomorrow morning so hopefully it won't get any worse until then.

Poor kid, it is really scary for him when this happens.  I can't imagine how hard that would be.  We really need to get to Boise to see our GI doc but it's hard to find a time when we can go and paying for another trip makes me sick.  Maybe they can make an adjustment in his meds and things will turn around. 

You never know when things are going to turn for us, for good or for bad.  It happens when we least expect it.  I thought this medicine the boys were on for IBD would keep them out of harms way but I guess not, unless something else is going on.  It's a guessing game.  Here's to another week of white knuckles.
