Today 9 years ago I was in the operating room getting my new life saving friend. I was to sick to be scared and to week to care. Though as any new Ostomy there were tough times. But with sheer determination and a will to get my life back from having ulcerative colitis it has been a road to accomplishments. Mostly being able now to enjoy playing with my Grand children and watching them grow. Having my Wife not worrying so much about me not being well, though she still worries but it’s agiven.Haven’t looked back since.
You’re so right Angi and the Sun has been shining ever since
Hey Charleston Guy!
Glad to hear things are well with you! There will always be ups and downs but most of us are glad to ride that rollercoaster verses the alternative! Just keep laughing at the bad stuff!
Indeed Puppy as the saying goes laughter is the best Medicine. Life itself has ups and downs whether you have an Ostomy or not. It’s the Challenge of living.
Hi Robert, Thanks for sharing with us and you feel better and I would love that to, playing with my grandkids but I wouldn’t have any my daughter don’t want kids 😭 Any way enjoy 😊 and celebrate and Have a Happy Easter!! Victoria
Congratulations on your Stomaversary, Bobby! I think you've handled the whole thing with good humor and aplomb! Keep it up and keep smiling! Attitude is everything. Have a great Easter!
I want to thank all those who wished me the very best with my Stomaversary. It has been as we all know a road to accpetamce.Keeping a Positive Attitude and the will not to let it get the best of me , It's become a second nature to me. Through all the trials and tibulations in these past nine years I'm looking forward for another nine years and beyond.
Again Thanks to all,
May everyone keep a Positive Attitude and don't let your ostomy rule you, but you rule your ostomy.
And may everyone have a Happy and safe Easter.
My one year Stomaversary is the 25th! Seems like it has been years! Lol
