    Begorra! I'll have to dig out something very green to wear tomorrow. Our Lions Club is sponsoring a contestant in a speech contest so we'll probably go listen to the speeches tomorrow evening.

        Oh gosh, guess I'd better follow suit and type in green - don't want to get pinched! Hee hee! I once thought it would be fun to speak with an Irish accent, so I actually went and looked up how to enunciate things, and all I managed was one really good sentence, lol!

        Happy St. Patrick's Day! Now off to find something green to wear....
        Hugs,

          Happy St Patrick's Day and HAPPY BIRTHDAY CINDY!!! We had about 6 inches of snow here last night so I'll be lucky if I make out of the house today, the boys are outside cleaning off the cars and trying to dig them out right now.

          I have been diagnoised for 6 1/2 years now. I have taken a long break from the ICN but really miss helping out my fellow IC patients and want to get back into posting.
          1st hydro 4/07 showed no visible signs of IC but tons of mast cells in all my biopsy samples which did prove IC.
          2nd hydro 4/13/09 showed dark purple glomerulations and I had a capacity of 450 cc's. This hydro proved that my IC had progressed.
          I have tried every oral medication as well as rescue instills and DMSO.

          I have been lucky enough to see Dr Hanno, the top IC specialist in PA who has told me due to the fact that I have not responded to any "standard" treatments that I have a severe, end stage case of IC with a horrible quality of life (didn't have to tell me that last part!)

              Yes! I am ready for spring too! Six inches of snow and it was 73 two days before it snowed and someone told me it's supposed to be in the 70's next week. I can't deal with this wacky weather! Spring hurry up already! I hate this snow when I can't go anywhere because our street is such a mess
