    Newly diagnosed 7 year old

    My 7 year old daughter was just diagnosed with Crohn's. She got a bad virus back in March of this year and had some diarrhea with that sickness which never went away. Her other symptoms included lack of weight gain, anemia, blood in the stool, nausea, random fevers. She had a colon/endoscopy...
