The day before Thanksgiving, I woke up with awful pain. Usually 1/2 a loritab helps but I had to take another 1/2 when the first 1/2 didn't work. So, the pain went away but I was awfully nauseous all day. I had to keep eating soda crackers all day. Then on Thanksgiving, I was nauseous at noon but ok to eat way too much later on that night. I was so happy to not be sick for 3 whole days and to enjoy life for a change. It was good to get away and have a break. I was sick all last December on through February. With IBD, it is one day at a time, sometimes one minute at a time. Now, it is back to the real world with my ct scan and scope following in a week. I am dreading it a bit, but I am getting used to all these procedures.
