The hubs and I are off to Arizona for Giants' Spring Training!!!! I'm so excited. A little scared, too, because it's mt first time flying, swimming, staying in a hotel, and traveling with the ileostomy. I think I packed like 30 bags, in three separate bags, including my carry on. I'm so scared my luggage will get lost. Eek!
So, don't have too much fun here without me!
If at first you do not succeed, then skydiving is surely not meant for you.

Have a great time Joanne! Hoping you, and the SF Giants pitchers, stay clear of any 4-baggers!

Ileostomy since August 2005.
As result of surgery (modified whipple) for necrotising pancreatitis. Removal of gallbladder, 2/3 of pancreas, resections of large and small intestines. Massive infection. 8 months in ICU at Westchester County M.C. (I think that's a record). Second surgery for resection due to fistulas in January 2007. Been slowly recovering since then. Possible reconnection candidate.

Hey Jo,
Don't worry about a thing. Have bags, will travel. Plus, it's a whole lot easier than traveling with UC. Hope you both have a blast!!
P.S. - I love your new signature about the skydiving! tongue
Dx'd Crohn's in '99 at 28. Proctocolectomy and ileostomy in '06.
Disease-free, medicine-free, and very thankful to be healthy again :)
