Have you ever bleed before on any other flares?
That's strange you have a sister-in-law in medicine with a husband with colitis. Sounds like a good resource for you.
Let's hope you just have UC without bleeding if that is possible. I have always had blood when I flare except when the flare is calming down. Either way, I think no blood is a positive thing. Good luck. I really like your quote by the way. :)
