Really interesting... just a guess from the gown/hospital bed/etc but I think we had surgery at the same hospital :) She is beautiful without hair!
I wonder if she went for a j-pouch or permanent ileostomy? I didn't see it mentioned in the article.
Speaking of moonface photos, I was in the wedding party at a family wedding about
a month before I was hospitalized. I had gained so much weight in the previous month from being on prednisone that I had to secretly buy a new bridesmaid dress in a larger size, and I was on codeine the entire time. When people see photos from the wedding they always point to me and say "That's YOU???"
