I am glad so many nice people replied to you. You asked about my daughter's schooling. She made it through the year! Decent grades too. You can only do what your body allows though, so don't stress. Life is a marathon, not a sprint. If school takes a little longer to finish, so be it. My L got lucky that her long hospital stay was over spring break, and then she had a lot of "down time" to study, as the friends got a little sparse. Sounds like a good plan for you to take it slow next year.
Tonight she is walking in Chicago at the Crohns and Colitis Foundation Walk-a-Thon. I hope there are plenty of port a pottys!
Her friends have been pretty supportive. She tells them of the reason that she can't eat what they eat, or wear what they wear(acne cover-ups) or even have the energy they have to walk long distances. She found that they were more sympathetic when she was honest. She came up with a standard explanation of
"what it is" so that it was not embarrassing for her or for them. A tip for the day....
Keep in touch, hang in there!
