Kara was diagnosed with food protein induced enterocolitis syndrome (FPIES) in August of 2010. She has had many FPIES reactions and complications that have lead to numerous hospitalizations and specialist appointments. It was a huge sigh of relief to finally have some answers and a diagnosis, however we have to remind ourselves daily that this is a very serious disease and this is only the beginning of the long road we have in front of us.

Which One?

I wasn't able to get Kara in to see the gastroenterologist until August 12th down at MN Gastro Pediatric Clinic. In the meantime with all of these reactions and things going on, I thought I would see what I could do to get her in sooner. I called down to St. Cloud to see if we could be seen any sooner there. They have an appointment on August 6th with a doctor through Fairview that I took for Kara for now while we figure out which place we are going to go. I'm running a mental list of pros and cons of both and am totally undecided about where to go. Can we do both, just to get a second opinion if needed???
I think I'll be calling the insurance company again tomorrow...
