Ellen's journal: My Son's First Girlfriend!

My darling 16-year-old has his FIRST girlfriend and he is so happy it almost makes me weep! This boy has always had a lot of friends, but is terribly shy around girls. I always knew he wouldn't have a girlfriend until someone asked him out, and it finally happened.

He is gaga over her, and it seems she feels the same way. (They post on Facebook, so I get to snoop a bit.)

Anyway, the poor kid's been through a lot as he was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease at the beginning of 9th grade, and he was so very sick. I thought he would starve to death before we had a dx! (He was 5'9" then and went down to 89 pounds.) He's on an aggressive treatment now and is feeling mostly great. His weight is still an issue--he's over 5'10" now and only weighs about 125 (he should be closer to 150), but it's a great improvement over two years ago.

He's been such a trooper! This kid is my hero. And now he's smiling all the time, which he deserves.

How cute! I just love when shy guys finally find the right girl!

Sorry to hear about his dx, hopefully with the aggressive treatment he will continue to get better. Hugs and prayers to you and your son.
