cool  Hey all...I joined up here several months ago...maybe August or September after I got out of the hospital and was diagnosed and just thought I'd poke in and say hi and write a run-on sentence. I've been doing great since my 15 day hospital vacation. I dropped about 25 pounds during that 2 + weeks and have since put my weight back on actually now with more muscle then previously , which is nice. I've gotten back into martial arts and have been training in brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for a while now and loving it. I've only had a few small problems here and there . I've been tapered off prednisone and take 8 Asacol a day along with 50mg Mercaptapurine , a 40mg Omeprazole , Multivitamin , several fish oil pills , and I do my Remicade every 2 months. If anyone has any questions about Remicade , incidentally , and you've never had it I cannot say enough about it. It's great , fantastic , glorious etc...I always schedule my appointments for 10 am so I can watch First Take on ESPN :) so it's not a big inconvenience. This disease certainly sucks but I've found that keeping in shape...working out..eating well etc.. seems to help with it. I'll stop blathering on now but yeah , just wanted to poke in and say "I'm still around"and so far handling our disease pretty well.
