Hi to all! I know this time of year can be very difficult for many of us. (Food we cannot eat, drinks we cannot savor, wondering if we will ruin Christmas morning for the kids by running off to the loo just as someone's going to open their gift.) I just wanted to put a bit of holiday cheer out there. 
(Tune to The Tweleve Days of Christmas)
On the first day of Christmas my G.I. said to me, "You have Ulcerative Colitis".
Please feel free to add to the song. "Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night."
