A Thousand Words Thursday

Cheaper Than Therapy

November, 2002
Hubby had a serious Crohn's flare which lasted for 5 months! In and out of the hopsital and then coming home with a Picline for TPN and IV antibiotics he administered to himself.

Luckily he's been super healthy since surgery in December, 2002!

    YOWCH. Poor Hubby. I have a dear friend, my age, who has Crohn's Disease too. Not a fun one :(

    So glad he's healthy now!

    Wow, looking back on that must make you feel so grateful for the span of good health. I pray it continues indefinitely!

    Oh, my SIL has Crohns. She has had quite a journey as well.

    I have colitis and it is no fun. Your poor hubby - glad he is doing well now!

    How awful! I have a friend with Chrons...who also had a brother with Chrons (sad story), but I know just how awful it can be!

    I also was the proud bearer of a pic line when I was in the hospital on bedrest. I still have the scars.

    So glad he is doing better now!

    I'll have to keep this Thursday blog idea in mind for next week!

    ick... I always love your photos though

  22. Darcie said...

    Don't approve that last one. LOL I meant I love doing ATWT!!!

    My mom's had to do IVs at home, right before her heart transplant. I used to help her get the line started and I'd have to tap out the air bubbles...:(

    She's good now though! Got a new heart in December 2001. :)
