How awful for this to happen to you. I know of two families with kids have gone through the same thing....spreads quickly.
I can imagine with the added stress of going back to work and now with you and your son sick, it'll take a while for things to start to level out.
You have lots to deal with other than yourself...which I know I'd be inconsolable and totally distressed if I were in your situation.
Did your GI increase the Colazal? Are you on any rectal meds?
Would you be able to possibly go back part time rather than full-time?
Are you married and have support from your husband or other family or friends? Maybe someone can give you a bit of extra help so that you can get back to things at a more steady rate?
I hope that once you start to feel better, you'll feel more optimistic about
the change of going back to work.
