Annette Update: Possible Crohn's Disease.

by Paul C / March 20, 2006 7:47 AM PST

That's an autoimmune disorder that causes inflammation and ulceration of the intestines (The "growth" turned out to be part of her intestine being where it ought not to have been). It's not "curable," but is controllable with anything from a change in diet to surgery.

She's going into the hospital in the morning for more tests. Mommy's with her. We'll know more in a day or so.

Well this is good news in a way ...

... but Crohn's is one of those "doesies" that the medical establishment doesn't seem to have much of a handle on judging from the varied treatments the few I've known with it have tried.

I occasionally listen to Dr. call-in shows on the radio (mostly when nothing else is in reception). It seems a lot of callers call in for this disease. It may well be worthwhile to at least seek out a specialist that works with a comprehensive approach of nutrition and "traditional" medical techniques as a matter of routine. We never really know about the callers, etc., but it seems that quite a few I've heard have had significant improvement with dietary/supplemental changes.

My best to Annette, and your family will remain in my prayers.

Evie Happy

I'd seen a lot of this in other places today, but not all of it together.

A verse that will help........
Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father Which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, there am I in the midst of them.
-Matthew 18:19-20 KJV-


I don't know if you saw this in the other thread but thought I would repost it here.
What the above verse tells me that when all of the SE Angels get to9gether in prayer we have a lot of strength:)

I know a young lady, now in her mid 20's, who was diagnosed with this when she was around 10 or 11. It was difficult for her at such a young age, but she is now doing fine, and is studying to be a nurse.

Annette has our prayers.

Was diagnosed 12 years ago... Has to watch his diet but otherwise is comfortable as a 65 year old can be.

Hang in there and prayers for you.

I was diagnosed as having it in 1981. I had a couple of operations, but it looks like they got it, it hasn't bothered me for years.

A son of a good friend was diagnosed 3 years ago.
by Angeline Booher / March 21, 2006 4:24 AM PST

.... when in his mid-thrities.

He reported that the worse part was not knowing what was wrong with him before the diagnosis was made.

He is doing just fine.

Prayers continue for Annette, you, your wife. No matter their age, they are always our kids!

Ex-brother-in-law has Crohn's
by Cindi Haynes / March 21, 2006 4:39 AM PST

He had some bad times here and there, but for the most part it's been manageable for him.

I think the not knowing is the worst part. Once you know, you can start doing something about it!

Prayers continue, Paul. My best to Annette.

I'm grateful your worst fears were unfounded.

While no illness is good, it sounds like there is room for optimism. Time is definitely on her side.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
