Med Free? . . .

It's been a couple of weeks since I saw my new GI and he was perplexed. He said to me, I do not think a person with Crohn's disease can have their colon completely healed after a year of treatment with Humira. I don't think you have Crohn's . . . . . WEll, WHAT … Continue reading Med Free? . . .

Life is precious. . .

Last week I went to my great aunt's funeral. She was terminally ill and bedridden for the last ten years of her life. After surviving a stroke, she could no longer speak and eventually lost her battle with cancer. It was hard for me to visit her because growing up she was such a boisterous woman and to see … Continue reading Life is precious. . .
