Hi my fellow Crohnies!
I wanted to write a quick update to reach out and make sure everyone is keeping hope alive, staying strong, and fighting hard. I know, with these diseases it gets so, so awful sometimes, and keeping a positive outlook can be nearly impossible. You can do it. Yes, you. You have people who care about you, hobbies to have fun with, holiday seasons coming. Just breathe. Watch a good TV show. Read a good book. Hug your family. Call your doctor and work together. You can do it.
Me? Well life is insane. Insane...
With 3 sons (4.5y, 2.5y, & 9 months) there is very little sleep happening around here. And add my Crohn's to the mix plus diapers, toilet training.... let me just say I practically live in the washroom! My oldest started junior kindergarten this year, and since Sept we have had constant colds, fevers, runny noses, ug! But all in all things are great. My Crohn's Disease symptoms are there, they came back after the baby was born as expected. But my last round of blood work came back looking all good according to my doctor, so he sent me for a recent CT scan to check for any scar tissue or strictures from my resection surgery. Waiting on those results. And meantime, eating lots of bananas and yogourt!
Halloween is coming. Crohn's or no... I'm gonna eat SO MUCH CANDY!!!
