Prayers appreciated.

I very rarely ever discuss this topic.

Well, at least on my blog anyways.

Paul, as I think most people know, has Crohn's disease. He's been battling it for years now, and as long as we've been together, it's been a part of our lives. And for many years, it seemed Crohn's alone was our lives. But thankfully, for about 3 years now, he's been in remission.

He goes yearly for blood work, and just a general check-up to make sure everything is under control. His last visit, his numbers showed some "inflammation" so the doctor wants to do some scopes to check it out. Also, he's got some infected metal stitches, from his last major surgery, that have to come out. It's an outpatient procedure, but he still has to be put under.

Considering all the surgeries he's even gone through, this is cake, but still.

We will be heading up home soon, and I would appreciate prayers.

I will pray! Have I ever told you that Grayson has ulcerative colitis? He almost died (literally) when we'd only been married a year. Right now it's well-managed, but it's a scary disease. So similar to Crohn's. Will keep you all in our thoughts!
