I have been away from the forum for a few months now. I have had some major life changes! I moved my family of 5 back to hometown of Houston, TX from the NY/NJ area. Both my husband and I are trying to find new employment (our experience in the past 15 years has been finance, so you know what a disaster that industry is in now), my daughter has been having some issues, my uncle has terminal cancer and my aunt had surgery in the last month for colon cancer and now found she also has cancer of the uterus.

Wow that was wonderful typing that all out! As for me, I am currently in a flair but the Remicade has been wonderful.

I just wanted to say Hi and will be on the forum more again, since we are settled.
