I'm sorry but I left this off the story...
The next day she awoke & looked at herself in the mirror to discover she had no hair left on her head, not a single one. She thought, oh goodie, I don't have to fix my hair today! Then she went out & had the best day ever.
Sorry for the omission Doe. Keep that good attitude.
As it turns out my attitude will soon be tested as I go in on Sept. 30 for a peristomal hernia repair. During that surgery they are going to "try" to reconnect me. So I'll know when I wake up from the surgery if I've been reconnected or will have a permanent ileostomy. Even if the reconnection can't be done I have vowed to keep a good attitude about it. I am well blessed either way.
