Wishes for your child

Ok so with St. Patricks day coming up, I thought I would use the luck of the Irish to make some wishes for the future for my daughter. I can think of hundreds but I will start small and go from there.
1. Just one day without tummy pain.
2. No more Hospital visits until the day she has a baby
3. ( This is for her Dad) No boys sniffing around until she is 20 ish
I will be adding lots more later but it ends with her winning the Nobel prize for discovering the cure to all GI problems.
What would your wishes be? The thought is if we get enough of them then some of them have got to come true.

1. Stay in remission forever. Failing that, a cure!

2. Happy and as healthy as can be.

3. Not to be defined by Crohn's.

4. To be functional and independent adults. A failing on my part if they aren't!

5. To be the best possible advocates they can possibly be for their own health.

Love this!
4 and 5, Dusty, are spot on.

I wish for Izz to be a confident, strong independent woman. I wish for her to share her story, proudly, so that others will hear and assist in supporting Crohns research and awareness. I wish for all of our children remission, and a cure.

I must confess...Izz was apprehensive about bloodwork today, as usual. She visited the loo in the lab, as usual. She complained that she wished she didn't need to get bloodwork anymore.

I found myself saying to her GI nurse..."It's as if she doesn't remember what life was like a year ago. She should be thankful".

But I was wrong.

She (none of our kids) shouldn't have to know the awfulness of IBD. I *do* wish for her to be thankful in life, in general. But I wish more fervently that no other children have to experience what we watch our children suffer through.
TY for setting me straight, poppets mom!

1. I wish for a cure for all diseases, especially seizures, IBD, and food intolerances for my dear daughter.
2. I wish for true friends and self-acceptance for Jaedyn and all my children, and for peace among all the preteen and teenagers in the schools.
3. I wish for a stable economy for my daughter to grow up and be able to work and thrive.
4. I wish for my daughter to be able to do well in school (overcome her learning barriers) and learn to like school so that she will want to go on to college and achieve her goals of becoming a wildlife specialist or anything else she puts her mind to.
5. I wish for my daughter compassion for others as they go through challenges in life.
