Finally, a diagnosis!

After many tests and procedures, all of which were inconclusive, I received the call yesterday from my surgeon's office. I have microscopic colitis. They will treat with a one to two month regimen of Entocort. I will be very happy to be well...but hope the meds don't make me get "puffy." But, because I've been sick now for awhile, I've dropped ten pounds and the loose skin on my face flaps in the wind, so I suppose I could handle a little puffiness.
I'm tired of being tired and tired of being sick. If anyone has any diet suggestions (or otherwise), I would welcome them. I already know that I cannot eat greasy foods. I made two of my homemade deep dish pizzas with sausage and pepperoni on Christmas Eve and was too sick to take a bite. I also know that I can't eat spicy stuff. Tory from Dr. B's office also said to stay away from acidic foods- which I hadn't thought of.
Duggles returns from Mexico this evening and he is taking me out to eat, my choice. Four hundred restaurants in Bloomington and I don't know where I want to go! What a dilemma to be in! It is fifty-two degrees here this afternoon and all I want to do is wash my car - but the lines were endless at lunch time. Have a happy weekend!

House could have diagnosed it in an hour...

Of course you would have diagnosed with 5 other things first and almost died 3 times... but...

I do not know what to tell you to eat other than oatmeal or salads.

I can tell you that Liam is funny!!

Could you do something like The Olive Garden? You could be more picky there.
