Sebastian's Diagnosis

The doctor confirmed his tentative diagnosis of Chronic Ulcerative Colitis.  I think most people are more familiar with Crohn's disease, and from what I understand, Colitis is kind of the sister disease to that.  They are both types of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, with Crohn's occurring anywhere in the GI tract, while Colitis affects only the colon.  It can be painful and debilitating, or it can be well-managed with long periods of remission.  We will understand more after we meet with the specialist again on Friday.

We are praying for wisdom, for us and for Sebastian's new doctor who we will now be seeing a lot of.  We're praying for a manageable degree of this illness, and for a full and happy life for our little guy.

Thank you for being such an awesome, prayerful community of friends.  We are blessed to have you.


  1. Praying right along with you, my friend. : )

  2. Praying for you and your family, Melanie!

  3. Considerations:
    Why would the cardinals be laughing during an act of papal veneration?
    And why the veneration of this particular, bizarre looking cross?
    Would such a cross, which has no semblance to the traditional crucifix, warrant a sermon before a gathering of Church leadership?
    The possible answers?
    *after evaluation of the above links take into account this prophecy:
    The prediction therein was given exactly one year prior to Pope Benedict’s 2/11/13 resignation press conference.

    Consider this comparison: (observe carefully the words used in both the Caritas International video and the prophecy link below) (4:46 minute video; taken from; Caritas International production)

    An unusual event to compare:
