The doctor that brought the gift of hope
Teddi Bledsoe and her beautiful family went through several years of the agonizing roller-coaster of pediatric Crohn’s and PSC before they found the right formula of diet and medications that brought their son Colt to remission.
Teddi admits: Many times I felt despair and wondered why things seem to work for everyone else's child and not mine. Yet ultimately answers were found and health resumed. I feel it is important to stress that so often it’s not the quick fix we hope for, and definitely not a one size fits all, but staying the course pays off.
As many parents can attest, the emotional load of worries lingers in the mind long after remission is achieved. Teddi was blessed when a coincidental meeting helped renew her trust in the power of the body to heal and thrive long term. Here is her emotional story - the gift of hope that came to visit her family farm.
