I've only found this site last week but I thought I wouls share a story about my mom.My mom died about 3 and 1/2 years ago but she saw me threw some of my worst episodes.She didnot always understand my cd but she always knew when I was getting sick.I would call her to let her know I was in the hospital,she would say  ithought you was getting sick again.(she said it was my eyes).Moms first question would be did I have that tube down my nose.She hated that for me.As soon as I started getting better and allowed full liquids she brought me her best treatment.potatoe soup and cornbread.The nurses would threaten to take it cause it smelled so good they wanted it.I have had a couple of spells since she died that put me in the hospital.People has offered to bring me potatoe soup but I said wasn't moms.No could add her special ingredint of love . I miss her and thank for letting me share.Happy Mother's Day mom You are always in my heart Love Midge

My Mom had CD too, so she really understood what I was going through. When I was in the hospital waiting for my second resection I was on clear liquids. I had been on clear liquids at home for several months prior to this and I was really getting to the point where I couldn't tolerate anymore jello. Except raspberry. It really is the only flavor I have ever liked. But of course they don't make raspberry jello in the hospital. My Mom made me container after container of jello and brought it in to keep at the nurses station. I'm sure I couldn't have survived those 3 weeks if my Mom hadn't done that. Ok, I would have survived, but you all know what I mean. She passed away 10 years ago, and I miss her all the time, but especially when I am sick. Don't we all just want our Mommies when we are sick.

And so on that note, Happy Mother's Day to all!!!

CD 19 years offically, 29 unofficially. 3 resections '93, '95 '97
Symptoms constantly but all tests show only minor ulcerations. Currently having multiple episodes of gastritis with no known cause.

I lost my mom almost 9 years ago and each mother's day I miss her more. She was a wonderful source of comfort for me and, especially when I am having a hard time, I wish she were here to help me through.

My mom had the misfortune of having all three of her children suffer with IBD. It wasn't until I had my own children that I understood how much a mother suffers the pains of her children.

She will always hold a special place in my heart.

Happy Mother's Day to all moms, whether they are here in body or spirit.

My mom had seven children, widowed when I was 10. I'm 42. She's 83 and full of life. When I'm suffering I call her, she's always there to listen. She will be down in a few weeks for my daughters graduation and I look forward to her visit. Easy going, fun and poor and a church mouse, but you wouldn't know it. God Bless All Our Moms!

When I had to leave everything and everyone behind to protect my children....(we had the clothes on our backs and one little suitcase.) wasn't the beautiful home we had, the lovely furniture...the money...nothing mattered except keeping my children safe....but oh, how my heart ached for my mom. She had always been my strength...her sense of humour had gotten us through a difficult childhood, and she kept me strong with my own issues of abuse and the incest of my daughters. When we left, I felt like I had lost both my arms and legs. The ache in my heart never went away. I went 10 years without being able to see her or talk to her. 2 years ago, we finally were safe enough to get in touch with my family. Mom , my sister and dad came to visit. She was 80 years old then.... This week I have been crying so much, because I don't think I will every be able to see her again. She is 82 now and says she can't make that long trip again. It isn't safe for me to go back we talk on the phone... I'm crying as I'm writing this.... I feel so much, for those of you who have already lost your moms...I'm dreading the day the phone rings and I get that awful news. ...but for now... I talk to her almost every day wich is such a blessing compared to not being to contact her for over 10 years.
She still makes me laugh .
Thank you for starting this thread....although it is a sad one , it is good to express our grief.
Blessings to all mothers .
