Hey and welcome! As for questions, ask away!!! You'll likely get differing opinions on many of them, but since UC is such an individualistic disease, sometimes you need to try several different things to find out what works. That's great you're being so supportive of your wife; as a wife who has a really supportive husband (we made it through a terrible flare with a newborn and came out stronger as a couple!), your support right now means more than you'll ever know.
