Updates on my exciting life

I spent a lot of quality time at my sisters last week because she spoils me, lets me watch whatever I want on TV, and because I simply love hanging out with her.  Oh, and because my brother and mom were deathly ill with flu-like symptoms and I wasn't trying to get that shit on top of the crap I already deal with.

But after a couple of days, I missed my boys (the cats, Winston and Franklin; and my dog, Rudy) so I went home.  Big mistake.

I was home less than 24 hours when my sister summoned me back to her apartment.  But it was too late.  The next day it hit me and I was suddenly very, very ill.  Well, at least more ill than usual.  That was on Sunday.  Today is Friday and I finally feel like I got over the bug or whatever it was that hit me.  This is the life when your immune system is compromised.  You catch EVERYTHING.  It was only a matter of time.

On other news, yesterday was an injection day and I must admit I was not looking forward to it.  That damn medicine burns like hell when it goes in.  I've researched and read online that using the syringe instead of the idiot-proof pen might alleviate some of the burning.  The syringe allows you to control how fast the medicine goes in so you can slow it down.  I think I might try that next time.

Crohn's-wise, nothing's really changed.  I have decent days followed by shitty days.  The other night, however, I did sleep about 7 hours straight without waking up and that made me oh so happy :)  

That's all for now.
