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.

Kara's Surgery

Kara will be having surgery on Tuesday, October 12th at the U of M Children's Hospital.

We won't know what time until the week before but if I understand it right, it will be right away in the morning and then will be under observation until late afternoon or so. She will be put under for the procedures to be done. They will be doing an egd and a sigmoidoscopy. They will be doing biopsies and this will hopefully give them a better idea of what we are dealing with.
