Crohn’s: I hit a wall at dark o’clock this morning the 22nd time I’d passed blood in 24 hours.  I can’t have the new med yet. Waiting… Knitting, meantime, is something to aspire to.

Mom’s catching the first flight. Yay Mom!

Best of luck with your recovery. It is scary, but you will get through it. Try some deep breathing and relaxation exercises. They will calm your mind, and hopefully your gut too.

You are in my thoughts and prayers. A Mom’s hugs are wonderful and very curative. Wish I could have some of my Mom’s hugs. *sigh* (Waving, “Hi Mom!”)

Bless you and keep fighting until they can get you the new med! Tell them “hurry UP already!”
