    :woohoo: How wonderful for them both!
    Christine



    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!)

                Barb, you know how happy I am for you. You've both had to endure way too much to get to this point. What a wonderful new beginning. I know Lindsey is going to be thrilled that she gets to stay with mommy forever now. I owe you several return phone calls....I'll give you a night to get settled and try and call you tomorrow evening.

                I love ya girl, and I'm very proud of you for the way you've held up through all of this. You're one strong woman, and a great role model for your sweet little girl!

                Hugs, Sandy

My bowel ruptured, I almost died from peritonitis and spent several days in the ICU then more in a private room on the floor. If you have any questions about severe constipation from pain meds please don't hesitate to send me a message.

                      Well everyone, the wait is truly over. Lindsey is home, over on the couch. All in all she is doing well. She is afraid for me to be out of her sight, that I am going to be gone. I think a few days together and she'll be fine. The fact that she was yanked from me without seeing me the week prior when this whole thing first went down kinda scarred her a little. No worries, by Monday I think things will be just fine. thanks for everyone's love an prayers. It is hard to look at her and believe she is really here.

                      Love,
                      Barb:woohoo: :woohoo:
