Well, I started feeling so crappy that I called a friend for a ride and went up to the ER today.... They took my blood, said everything looked good and sent me home with a prescription for Pred... I have a follow up appointment with my GI tomorrow and they are going to talk to me about other medications besides 5 ASA's which have seemed to stop working for me....
   Well... I'm super tired and feeling lousy, so I'm off to sleep for the night hopefully and I'll let you all know how my appointment goes tomorrow....  Thanks for the support everyone...
  And Quincy... I do know that you care..... even if it sounds like your chewing me out... lol..... xoxo

Looking forward to the outcome of the follow-up with your GI.

It would be nice for you to get feeling better.

Hear you on the tired part....
