Praying for Some Good News

For the past year or so, my hubby has been complaining off and on that his stomach hurt.
He'd went to the doctor, his family practitioner a few times
The Dr would say what he thought it was
Give Chris a pill
and send him on his way.

Of course
The pain never really went away.
I finally said that he needed to go see another Dr

We went in today to see the Gastrologist
I loved this doctor.

She spent at least 45 minutes in the room with us.
Asking question and question

She was a little concerned that he's lost about 8 pounds in a couple of weeks
(But that could be because his stomach hurt, so he really hasn't been eating.)
And she found a little mass in his stomach.
Not sure if it's a hernia..she mentioned the word tumor...or what it might be.

So, she wants to rule some things out.
I like that too.
Instead of just deciding that she knows whats wrong with him...
she actually wants to do a little investigating.

This Saturday, he'll go in for a CT scan
and in two weeks
he'll have a colonoscopy and they'll check his GI track.

The doc said at best, he probably has IBS or a small hernia.

She mentioned many other things today like
Lactose Allergy
Celiac Disease

I've been pouring over gluten free blogs tonight
just to see what might be in store for us
I found Sarah Bakes Gluten Free Treats
and it doesn't sound so bad.
But I'm getting ahead of myself here.

First we need to find out what's wrong.
I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little worried
I'd appreciate some prayers going Chris' direction
hoping that he's A-Okay.

Thanks for listening.
