On Tuesday I went to my doc's to get the results of that MRI I had, and I'm still digesting the news he gave me: I'm in complete remission.
There is no inflammation, no scar tissue, no blockage, and the ulcers are so microscope now the MRI can't see them. If my doctor didn't already know I have Crohn's he'd have said I'm completely healthy.
This is fantastic, and he pulled out last year's MRI to compare and show how rough things were then. This kind of a turn-around in only a year is so rare he said he's either never seen it before or so rarely that he can't remember.
I still need to watch my diet and stuff, I'm not cured as that's not possible, but being in remission like this is the best medical science can do for me right now.
The world tried to goof me by throwing in a little bit of bad luck. The pharmacist assistant that was getting my very embarrassing medication ready and had to explain it to me was my biggest crush in high school.
The world must not have gotten the memo that self conscious Tim has been taken over by chill, cool Tim. It was a little embarrassing but I'm not dying over it like I would have.
That's good @TimothyWedel . Embarrassing situations come up in life, and learning to roll with them is important. Most of the time they're not as embarrassing as we think, or even if they are, most people won't care for very long unless you yourself make a big deal about it.
