My 8 year old son was diagnosed with crohn's 2 months before his 8th birthday. Everything I read online is so negative. He was on methotrexate injections 1 x week for 6 weeks, but his anal abscess returned. He has started remicade, he will be completing his 3rd infusion next week. He is doing well so far, no flare ups, his abscess looks good, he hasn't had any sores in mouth for a few weeks now, no headaches and he's gained a few pounds. He is full of energy now, runs around and plays all day.
We pray everyday that he stays in remission, no belly pain or butt issues.
Are there any mom's out there with possitive hopes and expierences? I'm trying to keep my faith and pray that my son doesn't have to be in pain.
Thank you. We pray for all the children with illnesses.
