Winning the Battles but Not the War

As I went to the hospital today to have yet another colonoscopy, I realized that it’s been 20 years.  Twenty years since I started my war with Crohn’s Disease.  And while I continue to be successful with our ongoing battles, the war rages on.  Each time I’m better for a while, sometime years.  But it always comes back.

I’ve had so many colonoscopies, I’ve lost count.  Well, I never actually started counting.  It’s not really the kind of thing that when you have the first one, you think to yourself, “Oh I’m going to keep track of these because they’re amazing and I hope I have loads!”

So, Happy Anniversary Crohn’s Disease!  I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our 20 years together.

    You have waged your war against this insidious disease with little complaint and a lot of courage. Not many of us could be equal to the challenge.
