So after many months waiting and trying to get funding and paperwork ready for surgery…. it’s finally come together. I haven’t been writing much because things have basically been the same – cramps, blood, joint pain, etc. But as of today, May 5, 2010 I am now ready to schedule the J-Pouch surgery and colectomy and ileostomy and be able to document it and detail it for all of you. I’ll write more details when I know them!
