I wasn’t sure, but I guess my Crohn’s medication that I started about a month ago, Pentasa, after that whole Sulfasalazine fiasco, must have been working.
How do I know …. Well, yesterday i got a phone call from one of my doctors offices telling me that my Thyroid biopsy at the hospital is scheduled for next Thursday and I had to go off the Pentasa right away since it contains ASA.
I’ve been off the Pentasa for more than 30 hours and my stomach/ abdomen is getting more painful as each hour goes by. So unless I’m starting to fight another bug or my Crohn’s is getting worse that must mean the medicine was working and my body is feeling it now that I’m not taking it.
I hope the pain doesn’t get much worse as I have to wait probably until next Friday before I can start taking it again. It’s going to be a LONG week.
Maybe I’ll spend sometime this week just sitting in my garden and looking at all the flowers that are beginning to bloom. That is if I can just sit and enjoy … it seems that every time I go in my backyard I never just sit, I have to pull weeds or prune a dead branch off a rose … I just can’t help myself.
Hmm maybe I’ll try to start now …. I’ll go outside and enjoy the daffodils while they’re still here …
Enjoy the weekend and try to get outside!
