A couple of days before
rhanksgiving, I lost my appetite and my colostom,y quit working and I became very dehydrated.  On Saturday I was under emergency conditions admitted to the hospital.  They found that I had a bad case of diverticulitis.  The alment that caused me to get the colosomy.    was in a great deal of pain and under continuoua antibacterialIVs,  After 6 days i was transferred to a Vocational Rhabilitstion center so weak I could not stand.  I had eater no food for over a week and mycolostomy had shut down for over a week.  In the rehab I wqas taking physical therapy and occupational therapy.  Every time I tried to eat my stomach bloated up[ tieh  so much gas I was actually most o the time.Finally after two weejks I got strong enugh to stand and walk a litte.  Finally on Dec 16 I was able to come home.  I now eat fsairly well and can walk a little, but I still have pain.  I have had trouble getting on ths site, but finally made it.  Missed all of you
