Well Go figure.

May 22, 2008

Well I’m back!  Luckily for me, I’m also feeling better.  Shortly after I wrote my last post, my husband took me to the emergency room at Highland Park Hospital (where my step-mom works) and I was admitted.

Unfortunately the treatment I received in the ER was horrible.  After telling me to “Eat more whole grain bread”, and over hearing (and finding out it was noted in my chart) “She must be anorexic” I fianlly called my stepmom and had her pull strings as the ER was trying to discharge me.

She called my now-gi doctor and he ordered a cat scan and I was admitted.  The inflammation in my colon was almost an inch thick.  I ended up staying in the hospital for 5 days, and I checked myself out.

I have Crohn’s Disease.  Gah!  Go figure, they aren’t even sure I have Celiac anymore, but I think so.  We’ll have to see.  Either way I have medication now, and for the first time since last October, I am in remission and feeling like a normal human being.  How great it is.

Anyways, I will update more often now, but I figured a quick post would do some good for some of the worriers out there.

Thanks for the support.
