One year ago today my life changed DRAMATICALLY and DRASTICALLY. Today is the one year anniversary of the surgery that literally saved my life. I had been sick for a while and didn't know it. When I went in the hospital and found out I had a bowel obstruction and that I needed surgery, I didn't realize how bad it was. The surgeon told me he had to remove 8 inches of my colon because it was THAT bad.
It's been a struggle these last 12 months, I've had my "UP" days and my "DOWN" days, but I've gotten thru it. It took almost a year to get the abdominal wound healed completely and now that it is, I can work on getting my colostomy reversed.
I am still on my journey and have a little ways to go, but I know that with perseverence, I will make it!
