About
Hello everyone. I am a retired printer (thanks to a H/A and then I got sick. Started with an abdominal aorta aneurysm, three months later had two abdominal surgeries and woke up a week later with an ileostomy, thought we were finished, but oh no, had another abdominal surgery to fix whatever, don't really remember what, not that it matters, I'm still here. I've also had a couple of spinal surgeries, don't want to go there again

What I'm interested in is folks who have gone through similar experiences and are willing to share same, with hopefully a little humor thrown in. Also if anyone has the misfortune of having spinal problems to complete your day, I'd be interested in hearing your experiences.
PS, Sometimes I have a tendency to swear, but I promise to keep it to a minimum, Gutenberg,yes, I was a printer for over 4 decades.
