At my wits end....

This last month has been a difficult one. Between my tummy issues, my rapidly declining lung function, and various other personal/family issues I have really been tested emotionally. I have been visiting the Mayo for the past month. They've done several different tests/procedures to try and figure out what's going on in this belly of mine. An MRE showed an area of Intussusception in my small bowel which led to a balloon assisted endoscopy. The scope was done on Tuesday and I am currently waiting for results.

My lung function is definitely suffering from all this GI stuff as well since vesting is pretty painful. I saw 23% FEV1 about two weeks ago; this was an all time low. I've managed to get my numbers back up to 34% as of one week ago.

Is an answer too much ask for? I just want this all fixed!
