Biopsy Results

I spoke with Dr. O'Connor yesterday and Abigail did infact have an increased number of eosinophils in her colon...surprize, surprize! The eosinophilia numbers also increased from 10.7% to 12.7% in her blood count. Abigail's diagnosis has changed from eosinophilic esophagitis to eosinophilic gastroenteritis with eosinophilic colitis. This basically means that she can have eosinophils any where in the GI tract. This is all so very frustrating because if the allergist at ACH had listened to me when we took her back for her 2 week check-up we wouldn't be in this mess. I tried telling them that I thought she was having a problem with the Elecare Vanilla, but nooo, I am just her mother!! On a more positive note, she is still progressing each day with the toleration of her new formula. She even had a few canned pear slices last night.
