Thanks for joining us Donna! It sounds like you had quite a scare when you awoke in the hospital, but I hope that things have been improving since the permanent ileostomy ( I just had my first surgery, hopefully last in april).

Hi Donna!

Good to hear from you - I woke up knowing full well I'd have an IL, and it was a shock to me, so not knowing you're getting one must've been a helluva surprise! Anyway, take care, good to have you around, and hopefully speak to u soon.

Welcome Donna - Glad you could join us!

"The only thing worse than being diagnosed with Crohn's disease 25 years ago, was when my daughter got diagnosed with this dreaded disease 4 years ago and having to stand by and watch her suffer with the same things I've dealt with for most of my life and feeling so utterly helpless to do anything about it!"
