Hey Teddy longtime no see. I was getting ready to send out the hounds to look for you. Glad to hear you are getting such good results with the Remicade, hopefully it will stay that way a long time. Don't be such a stranger.

Hey Teddybear - glad to hear everything is going well for you! Have you noticed any difference since you stopped the immuran? Were you having any problems with it, or was it just not needed anymore?

Good to hear from you again!
