Hello Amy,

I am very sorry to hear that Rory is fighting this battle.

I have experienced this disease multiple times, and sadly I find that initi=
ally prednisone will help, but in the end it compromises the intestinal tra=
ct hugely and the battle for our little ones is a tough and painful struggl=
At this point sense your kid is battling infection for perforation, his imm=
une system is compromised and i have yet to see this disease be site specif=
This is not great news, and i am not a vet, but wanted to convey some info=
on our experiences. You are both in my thoughts and prayers.
