tests results

We got some of Fiona's test results back this morning. They were from the biopsies they took during her endoscopy and colonoscopy. I'm not really sure what the clinical significance is. Everything looks normal, except, "Mild increase in villi intraepithelial lymphocytes, patchy." Intraepithelial lymphocytes are just white blood cells in the gastrointestinal tract. The increase shows inflammation. The report also mentions some, "mild villous blunting overlying prominent Brunner's gland." My first reaction was that villous blunting is from celiac disease, but after some reading it can be caused by an immune deficiency. Hopefully we will hear back from her doctor soon.

We're not sure if Fiona is sick or if she has some allergies starting. She has a really productive runny nose, and a cough without a fever. I'm keeping an eye on her just in case.
