 Its cold, windy and its raining. Three good reasons to be glad I'm an old retired geeezer today. Sitting on my back porch this morning with a cup of coffee and my lovely wife making french bread toast , I know I would be out in this weather working , were I a little younger or healthier, so, life is good today. We have to look for these moments , they carry us through when times are bad. Theres a squirrel out in the yard using his tail like an umbrella as he digs up breakfast and the birds are out in the rain which means it will rain all day. I'm just going to kick back and enjoy a warm house and a comfortable chair. Yep, life can be good, even when your an old crohnie...

Wow, you're cold and rainy in the deep south. I'm in the way north and it was in the sixties and I was outside all day in mid November. Wacky weather. But hey I'll take it. It was a beautiful day here and I spent the day with my husband, not something we usually get to do. Glad you got to enjoy the day 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.....

Zanne , as we say here, " if you dont like the weather, wait a minute. " It has been odd . No real cold and its Nov. , but we can have hot and cold all on the same day. I use to carry warm cloths even in summer when I was working as we never knew what would happen down here. I will take cold over the sweltering heat and humidity any day though. The point is we have to enjoy what we can , even if its a little thing. Tomorrow I may be too ill to enjoy much of anything , so today was great and I made the most of it.
