    Okay, I like numbers better than those boxes of letters and numbers that are all fuzzy – I always have to enter those in more than once. The box that I put my answer in is covering up the bottom of the numbers.

    Hi Shalene, Great to hear from you. No, we didn’t win, but we are thrilled that we were nominated, in a way I guess it is good thing that we don’t have the readership of those bigger blogs b/c then that would mean that people way too many people have IBD and the related surgery! Just visited your site, looks like you are in the midst of the UC battle, we’ll add you to our blogroll and share your story. In case you didn’t know, http://www.healingwell.com has a wonderful forum/support board for UC. It is really active and really helpful.

    Thanks Megan! Is it possible for me to set up a link to this website on my blog? I’d like to introduce others to jpouch.net as well. :)
    Thank you for recommending the healingwell.com website. I will definitely look into it!

    Yeah, the numbers get a little cut off in Internet Explorer. I’ll work on it. Internet Explorer is probably the worst browser to use on any website. At least the spam is gone!
