Welcome to the Ostomy team! It was a blow when I got such bad UC that they took out my whole colon. My story is on my spark page! I'm doing great with exercise now...did 2 spin classes back to back today. Had one lady at my Weight Watcher's meeting thought my grand baby was my baby. Yeah she needs glasses because 61 doesn't look like a baby age??? You are doing great. I have had a minor set back with new stress watching a baby for a year that is now 15 months old. I can't get everything done and meal planning is out the window? Reading stories like yours helps!
