Eeek! My reversal/ takedown surgery is this coming Friday. I'm not nervous at all aboutt he surgery, it should be a piece of cake compared to my first two! I am nervous about the recovery a bit. I mean, how strange to poop from your bottom! LOL.
 
Anyhow, wish me luck on friday, I'll let you guys know how it goes.
If at first you do not succeed, then skydiving is surely not meant for you.

LOL, you guys make me laugh!

I just went shopping and stocked up on butt cream, soft tp, wipes, and fiber. LOL. The guy at the checkout must've wondered what I was preparing for!

Quite a grocery list - the checker probably wondered what kind of "party" you were planning to have?!!!

Seriously, good luck and keep your chin up!!! All will go just fine.

sfgiantsjo,

I do wish you the best of luck. I'm eager to hear how things go for you and if you can give me some advice for when mine happens. I'm hoping for October or November.

I'll include you in my prayers.

Thinking about you today, Jo. I cannot imagine how wonderful it would be to have a bm the "old fashioned way" again. While you are under repair, remember we care. :-)
