I have had a urostomy since I was 16 (over 43 years). This was the result of bladder extrosphy (my bladder was removed at age 1-1/2) and then losing my right kidney at the age of 7. In 2008 I was diagnosed as having stage 1 rectal cancer. After surgery, I woke up with a temporary ileostomy, which three months later was reversed. I am very thankful that it was reversed.

I have one grown son, who is married and has one daughter. I am self-employed, and I work in the oil and gas industry. I love to travel to just about anywhere. My favorite season is fall, however, I like to travel anytime of the year.

I love to travel, hike, swim, visit museums, photography, bike, read, computers, learning a new language--currently learning Spanish.
