Scott and Bridget met in 1993 and were married in 2001. In September of 2003 we welcomed our first miracle, James. 16 months later we brought home our second miracle, Annie. And in October of 2006 our family was complete with miracle #3, Gracie. Rett syndrome entered our lives when Annie was diagnosed on May 19, 2006. This is the life of the MacDonald family as we juggle 3 small children and battle Rett Syndrome until Gods perfect time when we are cured.

Getting to the Bottom of it

Well, I posted last week about Annie's rough go so here's an update. We did an Upper GI on Thursday to try to figure out if there were any ulcers, ridiculous reflux (since we already have it pretty bad we were trying to figure out if it was so bad that the meds weren't even working) or something else. I talked to Annie's GI doc today and he said that the test showed that Annie has a thickening of the stomach lining which is typically caused from an inflammation. Where the inflammation is coming from is the question - Bacteria, Acid, H-pylori are possibilities. Our doc wants Annie to have an EGD (scope) with a biopsy to determine where the inflammation is coming from. We're getting in right away - Monday at 3pm and of course our wonderful GI is taking all the necessary precautions by getting us a great anesthesiologist and doing the procedure in the PICU. Annie should be in and out but we ask that you keep her in your prayers that all goes well with the scope and that they can determine the cause of her pain. Annie is also battling a virus at the moment so we are praying that this little "bug" gets out of her system fast so we don't have to reschedule the EGD. Poor little thing! What a trooper our little Annie is! Napping on the couch
