UC to J-Pouch Story

Welcome New NO COLON card holders!

Posted by Megan on July 23, 2008

Time to send two of you good healing vibes since your surgeries are this week:

1)   Lottie (http://lottie30.wordpress.com/) , a 30 something female in the UK going in on July 24th for her IPAA surgery.  Lottie’s been sick a long time with UC and is ready to get back to her two kids and her husband as healthy and not full of UC!

2) Carmen is headed in on July 25th as long as her doctor doesn’t have to serve Jury duty and her blood count is count enough.  Carmen needs to get back in full swing so she can keep belly dancing!   (http://carmenscolon.wordpress.com/)

If you need some good reading, I recommend the following Richard Cohen Book  Strong at the Broken Places .  Take care and heal well, keep us posted!  And if Lottie, Carmen or your families/friends need anything, we are here or of course, the awesome communities like jpouch.org and other support groups that we have links to in the right column.  None of you are alone is this incredible life transition, be sure to use your support systems, and be sure to give back with your experiences as you alread are – the best healing I found was giving back 🙂

“We really don’t want to stay with the nakedness of our present experience. It goes against the grain to stay present. There are the times when only gentleness and a snese of humour can give us the strength to settle down” – Pema Chodron
