Miraculum's Journal, 15 October 2017

"This is the fall of my discontent," I guess! While waiting for my surgical consult (10/23), I'm experiencing a recurrence of GI distress that I had about eight years ago, the opposite of the constant constipation of this past summer.

I had "microcolitis" a while back, which can only be diagnosed via colonoscopy and biopsy. The only medication that works on it is Cipro, an antibiotic with sometimes-dire side effects. I have a GI consult tomorrow morning.

Please pray for me, send positive energy, or do whatever you do to support those of us who are having a hard time.

I'm praying for you Pat. I googled both Cipro (ciprofloxacin?) and microcolitis (is that the same as microscopic colitis?). I'd be nervous taking the antibiotic based on what I read, until I knew what, if any, side effects I was having. Have you taken it before? Maybe it will turn out to be something that's easier to treat, hopefully. If you are anything like me, I always anticipate the worse.

Father God,You are a good, good Father and You love unconditionally. May Miraculum know You and Your power more intimately through this very difficult season in her life. May she and her docs have wisdom and courage to do the right thing for Miraculum. In the name of Jesus, I pray these things. May those who read this agree in prayer for Miraculum. Amen
