Thanks Gail. I really appreciate your well wishes. You all here have helped me through the decision making process. What does my brother think? He thinks I'm finally thinking rationally. He had surgery (as you probably have read ad nauseam already) 5 1/2 years ago and was the same age then as I am now. Hopefully I'll do as well as he did. I'm glad surgery worked out well for you. I know you suffered through some tough times. Thanks again! SB

Hi Times were a little tough but am hoping things get better down the road lots of people have done good after resection. Got a laugh out of your Brother's response. Remember lots of soft toilet paper for the prep. I didn't have too bad a time with that. I can swallow almost anything now .Gotta love it. lol gail

Crohn'snme - surgery is scheduled for 10:30 am tomorrow.  Bring it on already, I say.  (in other words, just get it over with).

I'm glad you love skiing.  I started when I was ~12 and hope to get a senior discount one day (I think you have to be 75).  I was a ski instructor for many years, but in rinky dink little ski places in southeast Michigan.  I wish I had moved out west after college to be a real ski bum and taken more time off before I plunged into adulthood.  Oh well.  I now coach skiing for the special olympics (locally) and take a ski trip every year.  This year it was Telluride.  I'm going to think about skiing in the mountains when I nod out into lala land tomorrow.  I hope to make it to Sante Fe this summer.  My husband and I want to check it out as a place to retire one day.  It's close to skiing for me, and my husband can golf.
