Hi everyone. Happy New Year! Old Hat, how nice of you to think of us (and everyone else).
We are doing fairly well. Physically, Bratcat is doing amazing. She finished her first semester of college and did well. No meds, no urgencies, just life! She recently spent the day in the city (NYC) with friends and didn't have to worry (any more than everyone else) about where is the next bathroom. Tonight she has friends over and they are currently playing Twister.
Nonamejames is doing pretty well too. His colonoscopy in the fall still showed some inflammation so the doctor upped his 6-mp a bit. He says he feels fine. Doesn't see blood. It's just the tests show otherwise. The doctor feels maybe he doesn't know what "feeling good" really is since he's dealt with his Crohns for so long undiagnosed.
Emotionally, we are adjusting. The kids probably a bit better than me. Some good days, some not so good. But we are very lucky that the 4 of us are so close. The kids have really stepped up to help out. I think it's the honeymoon period. Just waiting for it to end. LOL.
It's still very unreal but I'm facing the world one day at a time.
I usually see how everyone is doing here every few days. I just haven't posted. But I think of you all often and hope everyone has a wonderful, healthy 2010.
