Meet & talk to fellow OstoMates 20,231 members


10 years of U.C. and several operations led to the dreaded stoma and pouch. I had to give up skiing, softball and my bass boat however I still play golf and have begun ballroom dance lessons. I left a Chicago suburb at 8 and have been in CA ever since. I occasionally shoot trap and skeet and try to grow plants in the back yard although I am more of a black thumb than a green thumb. I have two adult daughters (both with jobs and there own condos. (yea!) I have a golden retrever at home that loves to bark at squirrels and dig but otherwise life is pretty quiet. Yow!! One daughter got married 5 months ago, next one getting maried in July,2011.

I enjoy someone with a good sense of humor, even offbeat as long as its funny. I am trying to keep the (stoma)situation from restricting my life. You have to Smile and keep moving forward.
