You Might Be A Crohnie...

If you can just LOOK at food and tell how long it'll take from the time you eat it until you have to go to the bathroom might be a Crohnie


Remicade: Day 666

Today I thought I would bring my laptop with me to my infusion.
I noticed that today is the 666th day of problems so far today.  The needle went in smooth (thanks to 15 minutes with the heating pad on my hand, plumping up the old veins)
I have my "infusion day" shirt on........

Had another lady in here see it and want I'm thinking maybe I should start taking orders and send proceeds to the Crohn's and Colitis Foundations.....hmmmmm

Time to rest now.....

Crohns Blogs

A big "Thank you" shout out to for voting this blog as one of the 12 Best Crohns Disease Blogs of The Year for 2014. 

"Vern is a self-described "Crohnie" whose blog, Leaving the Seat Down, is frequently updated and also frequently entertaining. If you’re Crohnie-curious, his "You Might Be A Crohnie" section is a must-read. Like much of the rest of the blog, it’s also very funny.
Vern's ability to continue rocking with whatever Crohn's rolls his way is truly inspirational. He started painting in 2010 as a form of art therapy, and you can enjoy many of his paintings on the site."

I am once again, humbled and honored to be selected amongst my fellow Crohns bloggers.
I'm glad to be able to help, as we all need it.

Thanks Healthline !!
