Hi Guys,

The results came back last friday...and its Irritable Bowel Disorder (phew!) although its still not good at least it wasnt cancer as I know the end result for that :( .... he is on medication and is expected to make a full recovery..... :) heart was in my mouth for a long time!!! Thanks for the support guys :)

I'm so glad it's a best case scenario!! Out of curiosity, what medication is he on? Here's hoping for a very speedy full recovery, so glad it wasn't the other option!

Hope he makes a speedy recovery
