How are you, ladies? I just wanted to check in and see how you’re going? How is the remi treating you Frogelita? Are you healing up nicely?
And Ivy? How goes my favourite Australian crohnnie?
As for me, I’m feeling the best I have all year (work is another matter all together). I have my 3rd remi infusion this coming Monday, and its my last loading dose, then I’m on the 6-week dosage. I don’t look at the fistula very often but it feels good and I can sit normally for the first time all year (!!) and its draining almost nothing at all, just a speck here and there (saving on liners!!). also saving on meds since I’m finally off all those antibiotics (I was spending $30 a week on them alone!). Taking biotin because the thought of hairloss freaks me out. haven’t noticed any (touch wood).
I have an appointment to get my seton taken out at the beginning of December, and the tube came out easily (!) a couple of weeks ago.
Looking forward to my first break all year in December. I don’t know how I managed to work through all those surgeries and the pain etc but I feel like I really need a holiday, weekends just aren’t cutting it anymore. I can’t wait to see my parents; I am dying to see them. So I have nearly three weeks off at Christmas time to relax in the bush and just sleep in and listen to the birds and lie in the sun and enjoy enjoy enjoy!
Anyway I really just wanted to check in and see how everyone is doing, not just Frogelita, Ivy and Fallcolours, but was wondering how you guys are going in particular, since you have been my support network all year.
