    Hi guys! It's been a while since I have posted. Sorry that I have not kept in touch better.

    Think I may be having a little flare. The past week or so has been miserable. I've been sleeping tons and just generally not feeling well. I've also had a fever of 100 or so on a couple of occasions. My weight is down to 100 lbs. I have an appointment to see my GI next Tuesday and he will do blood work at that time. I'm so scared that I am not in remission anymore. Three months wasn't long enough. I'm doing what I can to take care of myself...hoping that I bounce back quickly.

    Hope everyone is doing well. I've missed you guys. Please let me know how you are all doing:)
