Surgery was a success! AND I got an item checked off of my bucket list today: Getting a video of how long I could stay awake before anesthesia got me. My surgeon has my cell number so I got him to take a video and send it to me. He's a good sport! 😂😂😂

This is what the face of Crohns and life with an Ostomy looks like behind closed doors.... Tonight my children's shower toys were sacrificed to my agony and partial blockage. 
Today I ate for breakfast something simple as a fruit salad. I should know better really... it's not the first time a banana has hospitalized me from a blockage! 
I'm in agony. The waves, the cramps and the pressure melts away the tough mama and reveals the sooky vulnerable and weak Krystal. 
That's ok though. I make not apologies for allowing her to take over. She deserves her time in the light and strong me needs a rest. 
Tonight I need the heat of the water on my back. Tonight I need to cry. Tonight I need my hot water bottle and some sleep.

Flushing my PICC line 😂 I really do have the best support system. 💕
UPDATE: Feeling sore & tired & weak so I'm taking it easy. Surgeon said no lifting over 5 pounds and to rest as much as I can before my second surgery. I'm trucking along... 👌🏽

Today was an amazing day! 
I had my check up with my professor and the first time I've saw him since being discharged from hospital he went on long term sick and I was kind of left too it! To say he was shocked was an understatement. 
He expected to see a sorry state of affairs and was amazed to see the wee Pocket rocket was back! 
I was discharged unfit as nothing else could be done in hospital, I had no dietician and no follow ups just a contact for an Ibd nurse who thankfully was amazing! I was threw in at the deep end but I can't be cross as it's led me to where I am today! 
I researched diet and supplements and routines to help clear my blockage and educate me on my colitis. I learnt how to deal with a flare and triggers and a what to avoid. But most of all I returned to the gym without surgery  the opposite of what I was told! They didn't even know if I would return to work at one point!

Prof said I've literally dumbfounded him and made him so proud as I'm a different person to the one he left in hospital! he's proud of me and u know what I'm proud of myself! he even refers people to my page as I'm beating the odds! 
It's onwards and upwards for me and I now want to work with young sufferers who like me believed their lives would never be the same! 
I'm now discharged for a year unless I take a flare which is amazing news and healthier and happier than ever! I'm so lucky to have amazing people around me and who I don't know how I would have gotten through this without I love them dearly for putting up with me 💗and of course my coach who has to deal my colitis and makes his job that little bit harder! getting the physique you dream of isn't worth it if u don't have your health! #ibdawareness #crohnsandcolitis #ulcerativecolitis #ibd

No exercise stuff today...just an important message. Life is short...so choose wisely. I've made choices to simplify my life. I left New York City and moved to beautiful #slc I haven't woken up to an alarm clock in days. I take my dog for walks. I train. I advise. I coach. I've de-stressed in all areas of my life. And (not surprisingly) my #crohns is under complete control. Remission isn't just about prescription drugs. It's as much (if not more) about a prescription for a good life, as defined by YOU. Sometimes we need to ask ourselves exactly what we're so busy chasing. I can respect the hustle, but there are no free lunches. Be sure the reward is worth the cost because we all most certainly pay. #gymjones #gymcrohns

I was super tired after Remicade yesterday. I got home from the hospital around 3pm and slept for 2 hours, I went to bed early and even had an off class first period so I slept in and I was still tired today. 😴 My joints have been feeling pretty good considering how they usually are, it's just my back & neck that's sore most of the time so I should book a massage soon! My stomach has been feeling really well, I'm just waiting on my arthritis to actually be under control and find a set of medications that work for me. I'd like it to be soon because I'm tired of feeling the same way every day. My family said today how when they ask me how I'm feeling I always respond with

"isn't it sad when you get hurt so much, you can finally say 'i'm use to it'." 🖤 instead of ending on that note, this is another picture from the seal island bridge & it reminds me of how much fun i had! it got my adrenaline pumping!! so when you're feeling worn out, go out & do something you enjoy or if you can't do that then look back at pictures from something you did that made you laugh 😊 change the way you look at things every once in a while, i know it makes me feel like a whole new person ❤️ "when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change." 🌹#purple_journey #crohns #crohnsdisease #crohnsawareness #crohnsdiseaseawareness #ibd #invisibleillness #ibdawareness #invisibleillnessawareness #autoimmunedisease #autoimmune #chronicillnessawareness #chronicillness #chronicallyill #chronicpain #chronicallyfabulous #chronicallyillteenager #purpleribbon #purpleribbonawareness #rheumatoidarthritis #rheumiatoidarthritisawareness #remicade #methotrexate #crohnswarrior #crohnsfighter #tubie #ngtube #tubelife
Hi, my name is Shawn. I'm keto. And I eat carbs. 😱 Yep, I eat carbs all the time and I still get the benefits of being in ketosis. How many? No clue. When? When I feel like it. What? Whatever sounds good. Today it was about 3/4 of a box of these @simplemills crackers. I just tested my ketones out of curiosity and sure enough, still in a nice state of ketone production! Now, every single person is going to be different. There's a lot of factors that determine how your body responds to carbohydrates as far as blood sugar response and the resulting insulin release. It's up to you to determine your carb tolerance. The point I want to make here is that the keto diet doesn't necessarily mean zero carbs for the rest of your life. Because, at least for me, that would mean zero #foodfreedom and lots of sadness. Yet instead, for the first time since I learned how to diet probably in middle school, I am completely intuitive with my food choices, loving every meal I have, and not overthinking any of it. And now I'm realizing how much more fun life is when I'm not always thinking about food! #keto #lchf #ketodiet #fatadapted #carbs #paleo #ketopaleo

I got a special preview last night before I left Abrons. All of the elements that have been occupying @ivybaldwin for the past year or more came together for the first time: dancers, costumes, sculpture, lights, sound and most importantly THE SPACE (old buildings are always fun). It's exciting to share this first glimpse knowing how much will inevitably change over the next week. Opening night is next Thursday June 1st at the Abrons Arts Center, 466 Grand Street, NY, NY

Cabbage! So, this is another one of those items on the low consumption list for FODMAPS, under a quarter cup is in the green light zone which is a win for my plans of fish 'tacos', it's just not the same without cabbage & turns out I can have a little on each one🤗 Romaine leaves will be my taco shell!
I'm in love with the way this cabbage looks like old patina'd copper, how could i pass up buying such a gem?! Oh yeah, I didn't have too:) Hooray 😁

And to all my other friends, the lucky bastards who won't have a colonoscopy until you're 50+ ..I can assure you the prep is far worse than the actual procedure itself. It's nothing to fear.

Let’s address some of the top concerns for new ostomates! Leaks. Here are Laura’s three quick tips about leaks: “First and foremost, keep your ostomy pouches with you in case of a leak. Second, pay attention to your skin underneath you wafer – if it starts to itch, let’s go ahead and change that pouch. And third, change your pouch every three to five days. The longer you have your pouch on, the more likely it is to leak. If a leak does happen, quickly change your pouch. Maybe take a couple deep breaths. Allow yourself to be upset for a minute. Maybe meditate. Give yourself your favorite latte as a treat, and then, go about your day.” You can find a link to our video about Top Concerns for New Ostomates in our bio. Stay tuned for more concerns and more tips from Laura! #LauraCox #Ostomy #NoColonStillRollin #TreatYoSelf #NewOstomate #Video #Tips #IBD
