I have to be at the hospital 9:30AM Monday morning, surgery at 11:30 so we are going to my son's (2 hour drive) on Mother's Day for chicken broth, jello and Colyte.
Came down with a cold this week so did not take MTX injection on Monday and will miss next Monday. Talked to the nurse and she said my GI said I could quit. Have an appointment with him 4 weeks post surgery and will discuss where to go from there.

Sending prayers your way that your surgery will bring you to a long long remission. I still do wish you a happy Mothers Day anyway, even with the stinky bland diet.
