  I'll bet you didn't know you had something in common with me . Yep, having crohns is somewhat like living on the bayou. Its like having a 12 foot alligator in your back yard. Finding out you have crohns is like stepping on his tail in the dark. All at once there you are, up to you a-- in alligators and it scares the crapp out of you. Then, you find out that as long as he is happy , lying in the sun , your ok, but when he wakes up, hes going to bite you in the butt.  Oh yea, you can tip toe around him and hope he is not disturbed, but you never know when hes going to wake in a bad mood and snap. Your always watching for that one half open eye that says , beware, the beast is waking. You also find out that not taking meds and eating the wrong food is like taking a swim with that old gator. He just loves having you on his turf. So dont feed him and dont dangle your feet in the murky water.

My kids are afraid of poking the bear, that's Mama bear to you. Now I have to be afraid of poking the gator! And dangling my toes is my favorite. ; (

Nanners, my wife is doing well. All test are coming back Neg. That was one of the things that had me so down a few weeks ago. A new spot was found on her thyroid. Just got the biopsy report in and it is non cancer. They are watching her so if anything else comes up most likely it will be small , but I dont want to see her go through any more chemo. We are all praying that that gator is gone....Thanks for asking...
