I had my interview at U of Wisconsin (for an extension/research faculty position) on Thursday and Friday of last week.  I think it went really well and my colon behaved, so that was great!  I was the first of three candidates to interview, so hopefully I set the bar high for the two that will follow me!  They said they'd have a decision by the end of May, so at least I don't have to wait too long to hear the news.  Please keep your fingers crossed for me!  If I get the job, it will mean a sizeable pay increase, better benefits (yay!), and that we'll be living MUCH closer to family!
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son.
Eased for ~3 weeks in December, possibly b/c of probiotic use?
Returned in January 2009 (with a vengeance), diagnosed with pancolitis on January 30.
Currently taking Asacol (400mg 4 pills 3x daily), Rowasa nightly, 40mg 30mg 20mg 15mg 10mg 10mg of Prednisone every other day, Culturelle probiotic, and Zoloft (25 mg).
