We were getting really excited to start Ben's program last week. Then I had to rush him to the emergency room at 6 a.m. Now that he is off the Prednisone he is much more vulnerable for painful flair ups. I personally think we have gotten a little too comfortable with our eating and need to go back to a strict Ulcerative Colitis friendly diet. We don't know what the exact cause of the flair ups are. If we knew we wouldn't keep having this problem. The pain is so unbearable that he required pain medicine 4 times stronger than Morphine, which is called Dilauded.
Once things settle down I will continue to post. My daughter hasn't been sleeping well either for the past several weeks. At 3 a.m. she decides that she needs me! With no sleep and high stress, it's very hard to stay above water. My body has finally said ENOUGH! My lowered immune system from everything going on, finally gave in to a virus. With that being said, I do not workout when I am sick. Once I build my immune system back up I will be ready to go again. In the meantime I am forced to rest as much as my time allows. Which is very difficult for me. Ben is feeling much better now but still a little bit sore. Whenever his stomach is feeling fully recovered we will start his journey to health! I will keep everyone posted.
For those who are able to get a good night sleep, cherish it! I envy you. I never realized how much I liked sleep until I am this deprived. Anyone learn to live on very little sleep and still feel great? If so, please let me know who you are. I don't see myself getting good sleep for awhile!
