Yup .. our first and it hasn't been easy. When she got pregnant we decided for the surgery so I could recover in time. Now, with my temp ileostomy, I'm off all my meds and feel like a new person. I can't wait to have this stoma closed and see how my pouch behaves
Twitter is easy. It's just the status updates in Facebook. That's it. So basically, if you follow me, you'll be able to see whatever I set as my status, a timeline of it so you can follow how I am feeling, what meds I take, how I am sleeping, even when I go to the bathroom !!!
if you need help let me know .. but signup for an account and follow me if you can ...
