    I had my first Remicade infusion on Monday afternoon and it wasn’t so bad. It was actually kind of enjoyable! Ok, so let’s rewind a little. I didn’t tell you guys the whole story the other day. It didn’t want to start the week off on such a negative note on CNC, and I was still waiting to […]

    So, this morning was a tad frustrating. After breakfast, I drove to an appointment with my GI doctor, but, unfortunately, I never actually saw him because of some health insurance mumbo-jumbo.
