I am welsh and proud. I have 3 amazing kids 23, 20 and 11 and 4 step kids 26, 25, 21 and 17. And 2 grandchildren 4 and 1. I’ve been Married for 16 years to an awesome man who is so amazingly supportive to me as I have been very, very unwell for the last 2 years with Crohn’s colitis. I’ve had 3 major surgeries in this time. The first for my loop ileostomy at Christmas 2018 following a 10week hospital stay to save my life. 2nd for complications but left unable to eat solid food for 9 months. And the 3rd, 12 weeks ago for more complications resulting in a total colectomy, a massive parastomal hernia repair and to recite my loop ileostomy to an end ileostomy on the other side of my abdomen. I can now eat Pretty much normally except for some restrictions. Just in case this wasn’t enough I also suffer with an additional 2 auto immune diseases. This didn’t kill me but made me stronger!! My Stoma, called “STAN” Wasn’t life limiting but life saving.
