I know I had planned to come back regularly like some of the old-schoolers to check in with everyone and help lend support to some of the newbies, but life got way too out of hand for me to be able to keep up with online support groups. Apologies to everyone. As I was recreating part of my blog last night that disappeared while I was gone, I briefly saw a couple old posts here, and they brought back some pretty poignant memories. I forgot how close we all were back then. Anyway, I may be in a position soon where I can check in at least a bit here and there (fingers crossed). In the meantime, if anyone is just wondering how I've been faring, here is my latest blog post from last night after being MIA for 2.5 years:Fighting For It: Missing In Action
(P.S. - It doesn't have much of anything to do with ostomies, fair warning.)
