Gail, thank you so much for thinking of me. It means more than you'll ever know. I read everyone's posts every day, but just have been too sick/not enough energy to post or reply. I am still very ill. I have been having to go to the ER 3 times a week for IV fluids all day. The fevers are finally gone. I had to have an abdominal cat-scan with oral/IV contrast Friday. I am waiting for the results today. If everythng looks ok/no infection, I can receive Remicade tomorrow.
I am extremely weak, terrible body aches, intermittent diarrhea, extreme fatigue, anxiety attacks, no appetite, nausea, etc.
I hope you have a most blessed day, and thank you so much for thinking of me. I'm terribly nervous that I'll never get better. I feel scared.....
