Hey, thanks, Kara. For my birthday this year, I got a flare. Good times!

I'm confident it will clear up - I hope!

Kara, I've been on antibiotics several times recently for recurring infections in a blocked tear duct. I also delayed my last two Remi treatments by a week each. So hopefully this is just a blip and I'll soon be good to go.

At this point, my symptoms haven't even gotten bad enough to have gotten past my level of denial. A bit more frequent stools, a little mucus, occasional tenesmus. I feel better tonight than last night, but that could be just because the biopsies are healing and causing me no cramping.

Right, Sherry, I'm 21 or 25. Or both added together. Plus. My body only is that age. My spirit is young, and my soul is old as the ages.

If I figure out the body thing, I'm going to patent and sell it.
