Drama Queen ( my stoma ) is 2 months old today. She likes to hold it in and then really go alot at one time so I call her the drama queen. She likes to be the center of attention sometimes. haha
I gave her a new bag on Sunday morning on mother's day and she was quiet for 24 hours. Which gave me a nice mother's day as we went out of town shopping and out to eat and I didn't have to worry about emptying my bag while we were gone.
Tomorrow is my 54th bday. I have had crohns for 36 years and had my first surgery 2 months ago. So I consider myself blessed to have made it all those years without the drama queen but am looking forward to many happy years with her.
I have started walking since my surgery and people who knew how sick I was before are amazed that I am able to do so much now.
Just wanted to share some good news with you all.
Any one else have some good news in there life to share??
Even a few hours without pain or getting some sleep can be good news to those of us with IBD, can't it??

Glad to hear you and the Drama Queen are quickly becoming BFF's. :-) Happy Birthday, too! Life without Crohn's is the best gift ever!
Dx'd Crohn's in '99 at 28. Proctocolectomy and ileostomy in '06.
Disease-free, medicine-free, and very thankful to be healthy again.

Mine is only a colostomy so I still have most of my colon. They only had to take out some of my sigmoid and my illeocecal valve and some of the cecum. so the crohn's is still there in my colon but they took out the worst part at least for now. But I am looking at the postives and trying to not think that there will probably be more surgeries down the line. Am taking Humira trying to heal these fistulas. But am just going to enjoy each day that I don't have to worry about where the next bathroom is located when I go out. I am sure a lot of people on here understand that feeling of JOY. :)
