OK, I am not the one with UC, my daughter is. But I was waiting for her doctor to call me back (daily followup to see how her flare is and how the meds are working). Of course, he had to call while I was in the bathroom. And since we all know how hard it is to speak with the doctor, there I sat doing my thing while talking to him about bratcat
doing her thing! And in the back of my mind I was thinking about all of you!
