It's been nearly 10 years since my emergency ostomy surgery. Had to have a second surgery to make everything permanent 8 months later. Then Prednisone destroyed my hip joints and I had a double hip replacement in February 2014. Just had my gall bladder removed a month ago (October 2022).

Somehow through it all I still have my job but everyday is a challenge to fight through the fatigue, pain, and psychological challenges.I enjoy traveling, camping, outdoors, watching soccer and auto racing, mountain biking, an Islay Scotch, a good cigar, not being religious, and interesting conversation. I would like to meet people from all over the world.
