THAT's Never Happened Before

Today I pooped my pants in Las Vegas.

And no, it wasn't at the CRAPS table.


  1. Oh dear. Haven't had that (dis)pleasure yet. I just had my butt scope this past Thurs. and the 30/30/30 is giving me a run for my money. Severe inflammation in my Ileum. Going on 40 mg of Prednisone for the next month. Can't wait to look like the stay-puff marshmallow girl. Remicade is next if this doesn't work. . . what's the skinny on Remicade? ~ When you have time, of course. I know you are off on a big adventure! :)

  2. To clarify, I always poop my pants. This is just the first time I did it in VEGAS!

    I would suggest you try the Remicade. It does work. I hate it, because I one of about 8 people who are allergic to it. So don't listen to my complaints. I am definitely a Crohn's anamoly. Or albatross, as my Dr. Hank so succintly puts it. But the drug is amazing.

    It came out about 9 years ago, and I have been on it for most of those 9 years.

    It is made up of mouse antibodies, and is a TNF blocker. It is infused over a period of time (2 hours for MOST people), and the short term side effects are minimal or non-existent.

    Long term could be lymphoma, TB, brain tumors.

    We roll the dice, my compadre, we roll the dice.

    What is it they are always telling us?

    Risk vs. benefit......
