HI! I'm around here! I'm just lurking and have been super busy. Taking courses, work, baby coming next month, moving my brother, its been a roller coaster as of late! But im here and still reading!

You do such a good job (along with the other mods) that i can barely find problems before youve fixed em! :)

Thanks for checking in on me and Sideshow.

I have been really busy with work this summer and I do not get as much time as I would like to check on the Healing Well site but I do read it a couple of times a week.

My flare sucks; I have good weeks and horrible weeks. Sometimes I think about checking into the hospital but I don't have the time to spend laid up in a hospital bed for 5-10 days and I definetely do not have the time to recover from surgery. I have been on Colocort for 3 months now and it has helped but I still have D 15-25 times a day but the blood has lessened since I started the Colocort. I'm totally exhausted and haven't had the energy or freedom to do anything fun this summer (thanks to this flare).

Thanks again!!!!

Hi Keith...hope you're able to get your flare more under control. I still think you should consider some probiotics and maybe fibre supplements to help with some of the diarrhea. Your poor butt!

Bob...hope you're doing well with your busy schedule. Please keep us informed of when the baby is born. You must be soooo excited! Lots has happened in the past year for you...hope you're feeling totally well once he/she arrives. Will you be taking some time off work then?

I tried some Fiber supplements on Friday night; I was in pain all weekend long.... it was brutal and I couldn't get off the toilet and when I did get off of the toilet I couldn't get out of bed. Fiber supplements didn't bother me when I was in Remission.
