Heck yeah...never did we think we would grow up to have food restrictions! What?! No popcorn...that's what kills me the most!!! I even had the cool stove popper that you use oil and crank it yourself...YUM! I had my husband take the bag of pecans my grandma gave us to his domain in the basement and they were in my giant popcorn bowl...I'm sad b/c I can't have fresh pecans either...my grandma gathers them himself and they are the best ever!!!...but I told my husband last night that I never want to see that popcorn bowl upstairs again. : ) Boo-hoo!!!
I do love Taco Soup though, and someday after all my surgeries I'm going to be able to eat all the Taco Soup I want with sour cream! Nummy!!!
I know it's silly, but I do love food...I don't base my day around my meals or anything, but I enjoy eating...I enjoy cooking...I enjoy food with lots of flavor...I like watching Food Network...in fact, one of my top three career choices is being a baker and designing cakes and
cookies. : ) However, counseling is my current career path and though it's an expensive education, I may have to
open a bakery to just make money! Counseling is definitely a helping profession that does not have a big dollar sign involved. : ) You do this job b/c you love it.
Sorry, I do ramble quite a bit. : )
I hate that you are allergic to Remicade...wow...how horrible that lesson must have been! I'm severly allergic to steriods other than Prednisone...talk about
feeling drugged!!! And Asacol has been my staple medication...I'm sure it makes some difference but right now I feel that I just pump myself full of pills without much benefit.
I hope you've had a nice weekend!

Life has never been so sweet! I appreciate the small things in life...the little joys that occur every second of every day. Though we struggle and have crazy complications, nothing can over ride our love and happiness.
Meeting with a surgeon next week...and hopefully scheduling the surgery by the end of the month!
