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.

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! 

Take Care!

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.

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.
