Abby's doing alright

Hey just a little update. You may have know that Abby has been having some persistent fevers and tummy issue for the last couple of months. Well we finally scheduled a bunch of tests for her. On Tuesday she had a CAT scan and we just got the results that the her sinuses are doing great.

2 weeks ago she did this Hydrogen breath test that came back positive and Tiffany is going down today to discuss those results with the GI guy. Basically it looks like there is some off-balance bacteria in her stomach that is eating her food for her so that she doesn't get the nutrients. Kind of weird I know but we'll know more today.

If the GI guy says that she can stop the IVIG then she will get her port out too!!! Hopefully she'll get her port out in mid April or May. That's our hope.

I'll let you know when we know more. Pretty soon we may have our truly normal little girl!

Mark and Tiffany,
Thank you for the update on Abby. We pray that this too shall pass and that Abby can get her port out, and have the GI issues taken care of. What a testimony you and your precious family are to us. I read your blog and am amazed at your faith through this journey that we are just beginning with our little girl Kateli. Thank you for your story. It is encouraging and very enlightening, especially to read that the stuff Kateli is going through is normal. We will pray and lift up Abby and the rest of the family.
