Hi everyone, some good news. Yesterday (15 Jan) my sister had her emergency colostomy reversed.  All went well, if you don't know what I'm talikng about read' My sister, a new ostomate'.  Yes she was miserable for the six months she had it, her husband did all of her bag changes for her...remember, she woke up with this little surprise and could never come to terms with it.  Couldn't talk to her yesterday...out of it...but had a long chat with her husband.  The news was better than I had hoped.  Will be chatting with her today, and am interested to see what sort of readjustment she will need to be 'normal' again. Cheers!

Danielle, 

I am so happy for her! I know we talked about her Ostomy a long time ago! She is a very lucky lady to be able to have the reversal! Her Husband must be a Saint! My husband is wonderful but that is one thing he would probably draw a line on! He would hire someone but not do it himself! She is lucky! I know that relieves your mind as well! Hope you have been doing well! Miss our emails. Write when you have time so we can catch up!

Thank you, will post as things go long...swe don't live near each other, hope to see her in early spring.  Her husband, who is no fan of mine, has been wonderful keeping me posted on each and every detail.  We both have terrific husbands...but mine died. When I see these two like this, working so well together, it brings back memories...  All is well.

Hey Candy, it's Donna, but Danielle is a nice name too. I miss our little chats...you're still in my 'other' email address.  Will get in touch so we can catch up...a few problems of my own right now.

Hahaha,

 Donna, I know that! See what happens when you stay gone too long! I do have a friend Danielle here too! Lol guess it just types what it wants! Looking forward to hearing from you.
