Hello auntjudy, It means so much to me to know that I am not the only one to experience this awful thing. Yes, it does sound like we had the same experience. Who would have thought? I hope you are doing well now and that there are no aftermaths to deal with.
I am waiting until Jan. to have the reversal, as I said before. I will keep you posted when the time comes.
Yes, Thanksgiving really made me more conscious of the blessings I have, and how lucky I was to get to the hospital in time for them to pull me through it. The ostomy was a lifesaver and I am now feeling that it such a part of me that if the doctors tell me they can't do it I will be ok with that too.
Good luck to all of you. I am enjoying reading and getting responses from this site, with the knowledge that are REAL PEOPLE out there with similar experiences. I am trying to learn how to use this site. It is a real good thing! God Bless.
