Far and Away

You haven't heard from me in awhile.

I know.

I suck.

But guess what that means?


Praise God!

The Cimzia is working.

To all you Crohnies out there.......maybe it will help you too.

I have just had my third treatment. Each treatment consists of two injections into my stomach.

Side effects:

I sleep like Rip Van Winkle for two solid days - no big deal.

Mild redness at the injection sites - so far, nothing to worry about. And my nurse had the bright idea to inject higher than the waistband of my sexy lowrise jeans, so the redness is less this week.

Itching. Nothing that Benadryl can't handle.

I am so excited and so hopeful about what this drug could mean for me, for all of you, for everyone......

I am back.

To my hippity, hoppity, mouthy, cocky, up and at 'em self.

And not a moment too soon.

Thank you Dr. Hank.

Thank you Cimzia.

Thank you God.

  1. I am so happy to hear that it is working. I am going to recommend it to a friend of mine who has crones as well. I hope it helps him like it helped you.
