        Success!!!!!!! I had the butterfly on the main page of the ICN header done over my ribbon. I love it, the ribbon is totally covered up and you can't even tell the ribbon was ever there. I can't wait for it to totally heal up and the colors come out fully.

            That's really cool Leslie, I'm glad you got something that you like more. I have four of them now and love them all, I think that's really important since you are stuck with it forever, lol. I think I'm getting one more with Griffin's name and that will probably be it. I like to have most of them hidden with clothes for work.

            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!)

                Thanks ladies I am really psychic over this one. I love it already and it is still red and tender LOL I will show the butterfly below it is tiny but oviously bigger on my foot. This way it honors my IC and the place I love to learn about my IC and a tribute to the greatest lady Jill for giving us the ICN. Hard to believe there was a tattoo under that one isn' there. He did a good job

                            I am tattoo envious. If it weren't for that wretched Coumadin, RATS! The butterfly is soooo awesome.

                              Really nice- wish I can have one- but like Barb, I can't due to the coumadin. One day, I did tell my nurse that I was going to get one-- the looks that I got, so one day I did come in with one she just about flip-- till I told her it was temporary. (I was able to peel it off). She breathe a lot easier after that, then said she thought I would do something like that!
