Signed in to my blog this morning to write about my Remicade infusion, day 1410 by the way, and noticed that my little blog has surpassed the 100,000 view mark. WOW!! It's a great feeling that it's reached so many out there, bringing our big world together. It's like I just won an Academy Award!
So, keeping to that theme...
WOW!! Okay. So here I am. I know everyone says they’ve dreamt about this moment since they were a kid or whatever, but I never did really.
Anyway, let me catch my breath for a second... whew. There are a lot of people I would like to thank that helped me on this journey, from the local Tim Hortons that supplied the coffee and donuts, to my incurable invisible disease that was my muse and the reason for all of this.
But honestly I'd like to thank everyone that came by my blog for a visit. It started out for me to vent and to share my experiences battling Crohn's...and add a little humor...maybe, just maybe mind you, help others who are going through the same battles. Even if it helps one person, then I'm happy.
My sister-in-law suggested I start writing in 2009 and here we are, 7 years later and over 100,000 views. I'd also like to thank Healthline.com that have recognised this blog since 2013 as one of the top Crohns Disease blogs.
To say the least, I'm extremely humbled.
Thanks to everyone who have come by for a visit and a read. And to those that have shared, commented and/or contributed to Leaving the Seat Down.
But most of all, I'd like to thank my friends and family who have encouraged me but also have endured my ups and downs over the 28 years of my battle with Crohn's, especially my wife.
I thank you all sincerely from the bottom of my heart.
