All I want for Christmas is....


Yes, the Bacterial Overgrowth is back. Lots of gas from both ends, smellly poops and not appetite-all classic signs that the bugs are growing in places where they shouldn't which causes gas, malabsorption and other troubles. Fortunately we got our holiday shopping done early this morning and had the prescription filled by lunch.

We don't like the thought of needing to cycle the antibiotics but with her current plumbing and lack of the control valve to keep the bugs in the proper place, we are coming to realize that rotating drugs is probably in order for a while.

We are all very excited for Christmas and will try and post pictures of Ellie's extravaganza tomorrow.

In the meantime, here is her Christmas card picture for this year:

Merry Christmas.
And, as Ellie will tell you, Happy Hanukkah and Kwanzaa.

Hey Ellie and all. I keep checking and hoping that there is some good news. I hope that you are hanging in there and that you know that there are LOTS of people thinking about you and Ellie and wishing for some improvements.

We are sending hugs from NC. We are heading to MA and ME at the end of March and would love for Molly and Ellie to meet if possible, but that will depend on timing and health etc. Take care and keep on keepin' on.
