Back from the hospital today (9/11)…

I spent the weekend in the hospital with a “bowel obstruction”. the surgeon on call, after looking at the CT scan, decided to be conservative with his treatment and hope it was just severe inflammation and not scar tissue obstruction and gave me a NG (naso-gastric) tube and hope that nothing going through the bowels would calm them down. and it did. no surgery needed but i am back to 40mg daily of prednisone, and a soft diet.

this is the first time i have been in the hospital for Crohn’s since my initial surgery in 1995. i have never had such inflammation or gastric distress before and don’t want it again.
