So my mother-in law got it right this year she bought me a flat screen tv to put in the bathroom!  As you all know we visit that room quite a bit and now i have a tv to watch.  It is quite funny but i cant wait to mount it in the wall and enjoy.
happy holidays to all and good health!

That is really funny. My husband and I just had this conversation on Xmas day. We have a TV in our bedroom and need to get a new one. Someone said something about mounting it on the wall, but he couldn't say that if we mounted it on the wall then we couldn't see it from the bathroom throne! We both enjoy our TV time while on the potty. We just have to remember to close the bedroom door because obviously we can't close the bathroom door or we can't see the TV!

You have one good MIL!

Cool! I have one placed in the master bedroom that I can see from the master bathroom. Just helps keep your mind off things sometimes! Merry Christmas!

Watch out! The moisture from the shower????
I use FD&C Blue dye number 1 and it really seems to help me.  There is SCIENCE behind this.  Just ask me and I will explain it to you.  U/C and Crohn's for 34 years.  Blue dye for two months and I am feeling pretty good!  I am so excited by this but I need others to try it with their doctor's permission.  Simple food coloring!!  BLUE1.  
Your doctor will know nothing about this being for Crohn's, it is my observation.  Question is is it safe for you. I can't make money on this, it's already in your kitchen.  I just want to help.
I do 2 drops in 6 ounces of water when I get up, 2 or 3 drops in 16 or 20 ounces of water that I sip all day and then 2 drops in 6 ounces of water at bedtime.   Max of 7 drops a day.  Give it about ten days.  I am NOT a healthcare professional.   Ask your doctor if this is safe for you.  Same Blue dye that is in Gatorade etc.

Putting one in the bedroom was great for those looong flareups but in the bathroom? Sweet idea. Sticking with books for now though. Congratulations and Merry Christmas!

When doing a prep for a barium enema one time, my husband moved a TV in there for the night. It was so awesome! lol Enjoy your TV in there, it does help pass the time!
