Geting ready to watch the Steeler game during the Seattle/Washington game, when they did a little special on David Garrard and said he has Crohn's and is on Remicade. Very interesting!!

Yes, my boyfriend and I watched that segment too! It was wonderful to watch someone who has been through so much get out there and live life. Amazing!

Inspiration to all. I'm glad they covered that topic. I didn't know that. I think they won last night, too, didn't they?
