This disease just loves me.  Just when I feel I am headed toward remission, I wake up this a.m. w/ D and blood.  Now what more could a lady ask for?  This has been going on since last May will it ever stop?  Grrrrrrrrrr mad
Ok, now I feel all better - I vented and now I will move forward.  Going to have a great day today - It is our 7 month anniversary for quitting smoking, going to our 2 yr old grandaughters birthday party today.  Of course if she wants to come home w/ Grandma she can sure do it! 
Thank you for letting me vent and everyone have a great day! tongue

First of all - sorry about the "symptoms" this morning.

Secondly - congrats on the quitting smoking and continuing not to give in to temptation.  You know my husband has lung cancer and smoked 50 years.  It is NOT worth it for sure!! 

Enjoy that Granddaughter - they are wonderful.  Mine are 8 and 12 and still love to have them visit.

Congratulations on quitting smoking. Hardest addiction to kick I've ever had to deal with. Sounds like your UC is just jealous that you had success on another health front, and it is reminding you that it is still with you. I have faith that you'll find the right combo to get yourself into remission. Quitting smoking probably took awhile, so be patient with the UC.

I hope your granddaughter makes it out to see you. A little fun with her will keep your mind off things and allow you some time to relax.

Have a wonderful weekend.

What a bummer that your UC is showing its "love" again. Call your doc Monday morning if things are still not good.

I hope your anniversary and bday party went well!
