Mal had another snow day today, so he kindly drove me to the T this morning. (I’m a freak about driving in the snow and avoid […]

    Helloooooo! Happy Friday! Just wanted to pop in with a little recap of yesterday’s happenings and let you know that my knee is better! Woohoo!

    It was a gorgeous day in downtown Boston yesterday! It was a little chilly, but beautiful and sunny at the same time. My doctor’s appointment went well. It was short and sweet like I expected. My doctor wants to wean me off the Uceris over the next few weeks, which, truthfully, I am really worried […]

Then, I whipped up a French Toast Breakfast […]

    Yesterday afternoon, I headed into Boston for my appointment with my new gastroenterologist at MGH. I drove to the T, parked my car, and then took the train into the city. I don’t trust the MTBA to get me anywhere without an issue, so I always give myself plenty of extra time when I take […]
