Thank You. That's All.

I am so overwhelmed with gratitude for the kind words, wishes, and support from you, my lovelies in the online community, regarding my son and his diagnosis of Crohn's Disease.

Your thoughts and prayers are so appreciated, you have kept me buoyant through these unsettled waters.

Mr C starts his treatment tomorrow with an 8 week liquid diet of Paediasure, in chocolate flavour of course, which is a complete balanced nutrition.  He has sampled one tonight, and it has the tick of approval!
 

I have found myself reaching out to people in similiar situations and I was lucky enough to connect with a young man from America.  What a positive and inspiring attitude he has, even with everything he has been through.

Fit, healthy, happy and positive!

He sent my son a personal message, with some words of support for Mr C, and for me!

Thank you Jake.

There really are some lovely people out there who are willing to help others. Glad the liquid diet has the tick of approval from Mr C. xToni

It's really nice to have someone who has gone through the same thing guide you through this. And glad that the Paediasure got the tick of approval. It's good when they do make it thankfully tasteful. Medicine has definitely come a LONG way! xx

Thanks lovelies, I had a talk to my sons class this morning, and explained why he has to go on a special diet....and why it is so important he doesn't eat any other foods, they were all so wide eyed and interested, and they are going to support him with all of this...wow kids can be so amazing xo

I'm so glad you are finding support in this Michelle.
You have never been faced with anything this big. It seems your mindset is "let's do it
" to ensure Mr C can be the healthiest he possibly can.
Kids can be amazing.

So pleased to read your positive perspective here Michelle. I have a friend who also has Crohn's. He is 32 & happily married, good job, lovely home. It's just an obstacle, not the be all & end all xo

I'm glad your son is okay with the taste of his meal replacements. It would be really difficult for him if it tasted awful. Maybe you could make morning smoothies for the kids, so they could all be having the same thing...then he wouldn't feel left out.

Awesome idea Lisa, the girls love what we call "blenders" so they could join him! xo

So very cool, Michelle...the world's a smaller but larger place...in more ways then one! Cheers! Is this for kids only>chocolate mmmm!

Its always so hard when you see your children sick or injured. You want to swap places with them to spare them. But one thing I learnt with kids is they are always far more resiliant than we give them credit for. He has a great support network around him and he will be just fine - I loved you going to the school and explaining to the kids - I could just imagine your son feeling very special and cared for.
Hope Mum is doing ok too! Hugs x

Glad you're all getting so much help and support and equally glad his replacement meals are tasty.
