Life is great! Motherhood is GREAT! Being able to help take care of my sister after a surgery she had has been wonderful. I adore the feeling of running full speed ahead without having to look back...which is what I always had to do while sick...that I couldn't even keep up with my fast pace life while sick. Well, now I'm striving to stay one step ahead, and succeeding for the post part.
We're going to Colorado in a few weeks to spend time in a cabin deep in the Rocky's in the Frying Pan River Valley. I'm taking my son on walks and hikes. I want to go white water rafting with my husband either this or next. None of this could I have done with the UC.
Oh, and I'm sure you men could care less, but one my most favorite part of being better?!
I CAN WEAR HEELS AGAIN!!!!!! No more prednisone...no more flats! I have so many new shoes it's borderline addiction. I have everthing from kitten heels to 4" heels. LOVE THEM!!!

I am so glad to hear the positive attitudes of you all. I am still new at the whole ileostomy thing, only had surgery in early march and due to see surgeon again this coming week for the final op to make this permanent, I have had heaps of issues since having the surgery with my joints swelling and severe iritis and really high liver readings again and my doc seems to think that once the diseased rectum is also removed my ailments should disappear. Well I do hope that will be the case cause it is very painful at the moment. But not as bad as the pain I used to have with the crohns. So all things aside I am really happy living with a bag, it has given me quality of life, I just need to learn a few tricks of the trade and Im so glad you are all there to talk to. Oh and Im in Australia so its winter here now so thats not helping my joints lol. Thanks guys take care
