Where’d We Go?

The short answer is: the hospital. For ten days.

Yeah, you wouldn’t think the insurance companies would allow that, but, there I was, waiting for my diagnosis so I could get home.

Turns out that I (Mrs. O here) have Crohn’s disease on top of ulcerative colitis, which means, for the short term, at least, a very restricted diet: no fresh fruits or vegetables (unless they’re cooked beyond recognition), no dairy, no whole grains, no caffeine, no alcohol.

No fun.

So we’re eating protein and potatoes over here, in a fashion that does not lend itself to food blogging.

Once I start eating real food again, we’ll be back. In the meantime, though, I welcome any and all suggestions for eating with IBD!

    I have lots of friends with struggles with digestion, stuggles with IBD and Crohns too. The internet seems to be a magical source, I wish I could offer more constructive advice, but I can offer a big ol’ ‘Good luck! It won’t suck for ever, and Crohns sucks’.

    You know I’m on the edge of my seat waiting to see how you manage this transition as I’m in a similar way myself. Looking forward to journeying along with you and sharing. Get better and hang in there. 🙂
