Hello from the Hospital

Hi all. Just wanted to let you all know that I am here in the hospital. The not so fun stomach thing I mentioned earlier has been diagnosed as Ulcerative Colitis (not a baby as some guessed!). I am in the hospital to receive some IV steroids to help my body settle down. I should be out by Sunday or Monday.

God was so good to allow my mom to fly up from Florida on Thursday night be with the boys. She’ll be here until Saturday to help around the house. And thanks to God for Ed’s job that allows him to be home during the day with boys and to provide us with wonderful health insurance.

Just thought I would give everyone the heads up. I’ll have my mom keep up with taking pictures of the boys for the blog.

XOXO,
Leah

Leah!! I'm so sorry you are hospital bound. I'm praying for you!! We just got back and it was great to read through your blog and catch up. I was just telling Josh, "You guys do such a good job of going on vacations - I love it."

Leah, PLEASE email or call me if you want to!! I was diagnosed with UC in high school and struggled with it for about 7 years...I love talking about it and sharing what I have learned from it. I know each case is different, but I would love to share with you if you need anything!!
Love,
