There is a subset of Crohn's patients -- around 20% is the estimate I have seen -- in whom the disease is essentially level, without progression. However, in your husband's case, the alcoholism overlays everything . . . it is just as likely that the ulcers, bleeding, etc. are from his alcoholism as from the Crohn's, especially the upper Gi problems.
I know it sounds cold to say this, but the reality is that if he continues to drink as you have described it, he will likely die within a fairly short time from alcoholism or a related cause (falls, wrecks, suicide, fire, etc.) long before Crohn's kills him. You might consider Al Anon for yourself, as only he can deal (or not) with his alcoholism.
Wow!!! I grew up with 3 alcoholics :(.......so glad to hear you have al-anon in your life tough.
In reading earlier posts did you say that he takes his meds on and off? Messing with prednisone is not a good thing for him to mess with
Stay strong and do for "yourself"! That is really important for your own health. Prayfully, "Tough Love" wont have to get drastic in your life.
