Doing ok, at least today :)

I am doing semi okay with the Crohns lately.  I am still having good days and bad days but am overall feeling in better spirits. Food is still a constant battle for me. Most things still put me in pain and as a result, I eat very little.  but somehow, I've gained almost 60 pounds since my surgery which is baffling my doctors. We're going to test my thyroid to see if something is out of whack. I do wonder if it's simply all the carbs I am now forced to consume but, who knows.  Maybe all the illness, tpn, weight loss and now back to eating… maybe my body is just holding on to everything.  Who knows. Still trying to figure out what my next steps are but just putting, or trying to, it out of my mind for a while.

We have a big trip coming up next week and after all our family has been through in the last year, we need it. We are surprising our kids (well my son found out but I've confused him enough again that he is unsure) with a trip to Disney and we only have a week til we go! We're going with friends of ours and their kids and I could not be more excited about this. I am hoping the week will go well and I won't have any ostomy leaks, won't get sick from eating out constantly for a week, and no…or at least manageable pain. But I am determined not to let anything ruin this trip and am ready to make some awesome memories. Our kids are 2 and 5 so great ages for this!
