I was happily divorced with sole custody of my son. Stopped smoking and very quickly developed Ulcerative Colitis. It became severe over time. All medications stopped working last year. Recently underwent a colostomy with ileostomy at Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC. Getting used to this new way of life. The inconveniences pale in comparison to the pain I experienced from the inflammation from the Ulcerative Colitis. Also, I met a lovely lady while on one of those on-line dating sites. We married a couple of years ago (with my son's approval, of course). Now looking forward to road trips, restaurants and bicycling again...
