Phlebotomy and Prednisone

August 25th. That was my last blog post. You know how long that was? That is another 16 days that have passed. I suppose a lot but not too much has happened in that time, and so I'll try to catch you up. See Eleven More Days. After August 25th, I started writing my first set… Continue reading Phlebotomy and Prednisone

Entyvio Infusion #2

I don't really know what has come over me.  More and more time passes and I forget to update you on my blog.  But, hopefully, that will change soon and I can get back into a habit of posting consistently.

Another Week with My Crohn’s Disease

Saturday blog days. This is still so new and odd to me. I find myself stressing for Fridays, still, and I worry about scheduling appointments or making plans. I keep having to remind myself that I have another whole day and that I can take my time on Saturday to write, have coffee, and, enjoy… Continue reading Another Week with My Crohn’s Disease
