Anyone else see the segment on the Today show about chronic illness?   There is a gal on there that has Chrohn's.  Look for today's videos (Tuesday) and click on "They're thriving despite illness". This video was made from a book Meridith Vierra's husband has written.

Diagnosed at age 19 with CD.
3 small bowel resections, 1 for perforation, 2 for strictures

Thanks for sharing! That was an excellent video! Made me cry buckets as I am the Parent of a 25 year old with IBD since age 17 who also feels like she starts everyday 25 yards behind and can never catch up!! Waiting for her to take that same walk down the aisle! It's been one heck of a journey!!
