Wow! That's incredible. And you were here, a few weeks ago, saying that you wanted a way to have your voice be heard...

Seriously, that's amazing. I don't want to get too theological on the forum, but I have goosebumps.

Good luck - will you tell us how it goes?

Way to go!!!! I have always said that talking about CD will one day bring recognition to this disease and all that we go through and ultimately that will lead to more research and more funding for medicines and the like. So you go out there and be proud of all you have done and give your wife a great big shout out but don't under play all you have gone through too.

CD 20 years officially, 30 unofficially. 3 resections '93, '95 '97
Managing with strict low residue diet, keeping symptoms to a minimum. All test show small amount of ulceration, still have occasional blockages. But still have a great time with my 2 daughters and husband!

Prednisone, 6MP,Prevacid, B12 shots, Bentyl, Xifaxan.....

That is wonderful!! Esp because there are so many people out there who have either never heard of CD or don't have any idea about the debilitating aspects of it... hopefully this will help to open eyes.
