Per Gill, the doctors seem to be getting a handle on at least one of Charlotte's ailments (Ulcerative Colitis) and that "thankfully it is treatable." She is still to undergo a most unpleasant procedure/test and will be kept in hospital until at least Tuesday for more IV drips of antibiotics, steroids and blood tests. Gill adds that " but for Charlotte it will be a long haul from a medication point of view."

Mo & Gill have been at Charlotte's side, both day and night, sometimes switching off, sometimes together. It's almost a backhanded blessing that Gill is off work now so she can remain at Charlotte's side.

Did some checking on the Mayo Clinic website and WebMD. Ulcerative Colitis is an inflammatory disease that Charlotte may have to deal with off and on for the long term. It is, thankfully, not only treatable, but manageable. They've just got to find the right treatment and management protocols. So, they all still need prayer.

Glad to hear they found a diagnosis and that it´s treatable. Hopefully, she will soon be well and home again.

Mo and I apologise that we have not been in touch with everyone as it has been pretty hectic here
and can I thank Ned personally via the forum for keeping everyone updated about Charlotte and
what she is going through at the moment bless her and here is today's update:

Well after a very long day yesterday with Charlotte it was nice to get home last night but Mo as usual
stayed with her and I have stuff to do here and then my neighbour will run me in to join Charlotte and
Mo at the hospital for the day but I thank you all for your kind words for Charlotte and she sends her
love and thanks to you all.

Sadly her HB is a bit low and they have upped the mix of IV Iron & Steroids due to her now being slightly
anaemic plus she is still having IV antibiotics but on Monday she will be started on what we call a maintenance
regime of eight tablets of different medication two of those will speed up the healing of the ulcers in her colon
like I have said it will be a long haul for her bless her but within herself she is glad that we know what the problem
is and what the road to recovery will mean for her especially when she goes back to University at the end of this
September to start year two of her degree.

Finally she will have some more blood tests today then tomorrow she will be seen by her Consultant and Mo and I
will meet with him after but there is no sign at the moment of her being discharged from hospital and we now await
a date for her to undergo the “ Full Colonoscopy Procedure “ but I will have a chat with her Consultant about that
tomorrow.

So once again I must leave it there for now and as always on behalf of the three of us I thank you all for caring
so much for Charlotte and all your kind words in your e mails

Kindest regards and best wishes to you all

Gill & Mo

Thank goodness Charlotte's got till the end of September before she's due back to school. Penn State University students are already moving in this coming week and classes here start a week from tomorrow! Praying she'll respond well to her treatments and bounce back fast so she's strong and good to go in a month!

It looks like Charlotte is well on her way to recovery even though it´s going to be a long haul. It´s good to hear she will be able to go back to university in September and start year two as planned. Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

Dear friends

At last some very good news Charlotte’s consultant has now discharged
Charlotte into mine and Mo’s care and we fetched her home from the
hospital about two hours ago and now she is resting in her own bed as
she still feels very tired bless her but it is good to have her home at last
after seven days in hospital.

Charlotte has come home with a large amount of tablet style medication
especially a large dosage iron tablet as her HB still needs to come up quite
a bit but the consultant is okay with me checking on that and I will be
doing her daily blood tests for the next two weeks and Mo can take them
into the hospital for her and they will phone me with the results.

We only have to await a date for her to undergo the “ Full Colonoscopy
Procedure “
but I will chase that up for her but all in all Charlotte is
looking a little better and she will have could care at home with Mo and
I and from time to time I will update you all on her progress.

So for now on behalf of Charlotte, Mo and myself can I thank you all for
all your kind words, comments and prayers for her they really meant a
lot to us as a family.

Best wishes to you all

Gill, Mo & Charlotte

Gill, I know you and Mo are glad to have Charlotte home and I'm sure she is glad to be home. I hope everything goes well for all of you. Will continue to pray for you.

Glad to hear Charlotte is back home. Charlotte is lucky in having a mom who is a nurse and who can looks after her, do blood tests, etc. Much better than having the hospital doing daily blood tests. Hopefully, the “Full Colonoscopy Procedure“ won´t be too hard on Charlotte.

Shouldn't be; my mom had one done and said it was no big deal. You are in light anesthesia for it.

I had both a colonoscopy and an upper endoscopy done in the same hospital appointment. That's up from the bottom and down from the top. The only pain was all the paperwork that had to be filled out!!! The anesthesia they used was I guess what Kristi said -- light. Friend Rocco explained before hand that I would not know a thing but would be able to answer questions and hold conversations with the doctor and not remember doing so. The nurse gave me the anesthesia, they started to wheel me out, and that's ALL I remember until I "woke up" after it was all finished. I often wonder what kinds of secrets they pried out of me during my unawareness. LOL. The process is a breeze! ;)

Thank God, for anesthesia!

I´m sure we all do. The location of the treasure of San Saba, maybe? :D
