Ha! That's hilarious, Eva Lou.
I'm actually looking into getting flumist for H1N1. I can get that, but not the shot (I don't yet qualify, but at least my son does), in my county right now. I asked my sister what she thought (she's an MD), and she thought that since I was in remission and not on any immune suppressants, it should be ok but that I should definitely ask my GI. There's no reason my immune system should be weak. So, we'll see what he says. I just want to get protected ASAP, b/c I don't want to flare from getting the flu.
Status: Remission since May 2009!
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son
Diagnosed with pancolitis on 1/30/09
Meds: Apriso (4 0.375g pills ONCE!! daily), mesalamine enema twice weekly, Natural Factors Ultimate probiotic 12/12 Formula, OrthoNovum, multivitamin. Used prednisone (starting dose 40 mg) to get into remission.
