Well the time has come.... tomorrow I'm off to the hospital after lunch and my surgery is on Tuesday. I haven't been in the mood for blogging or even reading your blogs this last week. Instead I've been perusing blogs and youtube videos relating to my surgery* and what happens afterwards, and getting inspiration from young slim pretty things with bags, who are happy to demonstrate publically how easy it is to change the bag and to wear all your favourite clothes, plus lots of tips and hints. I hadn't even realised that it's not just people with cancer who have colostomy and ileostomy bags, but many people who suffer from Inflammatory Bowel Disease too. The more I look into the subject, the more I know I'm not alone. It's still scary but when I see that twenty somethings can live with it and look cool and sexy it does help tremendously!
I'm sharing a picture that one of my photoshopping friends did for me a little while back which made me laugh. Just so you know it's not ME who forgot the apostrophe! ;-)
I shall catch up with you all during my convalescence as I won't be doing a lot else - the craftsters amongst you will be pleased to know that I have dug out my chunky cardigan that I started knitting a few years ago and haven't touched since! It'll be good to be able to do something constructive rather than just read and watch TV. I've no idea when I'll be able to sit comfortably again so blogging may well be on hold for a while - I may be able to write a few lines via my Kindle to update you but I won't be taking photos for a while or doing any proper blog posts from my desktop.
So for now I'm signing out and I'll see you on the other side. xx
