So 2 years ago today was when i had my surgery and got my life BACK!!! 
Actually probably about this time, my surgeon was probably pulling that nasty old colon out of me!

Count me at a quarter of a century with Peggy. End of June 1984. Pretty amazing, all in all. And sure beats dead, which was the alternative given to me!!!

Happy back at you (and all)!

Elli,
I do celebrate my new life every year during the WHOLE month of July!!! We are not extravagant folks but during that month, we do go out to eat more frequently and I order whatever I want. If I want to make a meal out of appetizers, I do! WHATEVER!!! It's just my way of celebrating life and being able to eat without pain. So adding a BD cake might be what I do this year!!! What a good idea....

Summer,

Now that you have "come out" with your friends about your stoma, why not throw it a BD party?!!!   I think that would be a great thing to do!!!!
