so after a few weeks of feeling great and becomming more and more optimistic I wake up Monday morning and boom- blood's back...
unreal...i can't win.  so this week has been a lot of the same- more frequent bathroom runs, more pain and more blood.
then to top it all off today i had a bunch of tests at Mayo and felt TERRIBLE after- fasting blood work got me tired and then MRI with barium just killed my guts-  i came home and slept all day...
man i hope this week is a slight blip and i can start feeling like i did the past few weeks bc for a few weeks i felt like Superman!  :)

I think all the tests etc have upset the apple cart. Be gentle with yourself for a few and I am hoping you will get back to a better state. Hugs!
