Waiting for January....

Welcome to
Mon Aug 24, 2020 1:59 pm

My reversal is going to be sometime in January, my doctors told me...

i wanted to leap for joy, cuz my late husband had a permanent colostomy...

he went thru hell and put me thru it too...

but January is something to look forward too...planning out my hospital 

gear already...esp., after having no gear except what i was wearing to the ER and a few

items quickly jammed into my purse...brought my charger not my phone...wore

slippers cuz edema in my feet...even forgot my glucose meter & strips!

post-op in hospital & in nursing home i vegged out in front of the tv....kicking myself for 

not telling one of my sons to drop off my puzzle books and a few pens...


only had one visitor in both places, my son in person in hospital, & son for window visits 

at the home...thank you covid :(

Hi Sherr,

Sounds like you haven't been having much fun lately. But you have something to look forward to in January. That is exciting news for you; I hope everything goes perfectly. It will be hard for you not to wish the summer away! Good luck.

Yes! This covid thing has a lot to answer for.  Lots of luck for January  and stay positive.

bBst wishes
