Call for Stories, Blogs, Links, Photos

Posted by mark on June 9, 2008

In an attempt to make this blog as informative and helpful to a diverse group of j pouchers in all stages (temp ileo, perm ileo, no surgery yet, any stage welcome), we are asking that you send us your stories, links to your blogs, photos, links to photos, etc…We’d love to connect our network to others around so that when others visit our site they can have input from diverse people! 

We are especially hopeful that we can provide the female perspective on this blog – if you are a female, and have or will document your surgery journey with photos, please consider allowing us to link or share your journey on this site.  As you can tell right now we represent the male journey (which is excellent), however, we need the females represented as well! 

What we’ve learned by sharing this story of Mark and support for Mark is helping others is the best way to heal and cope.  If your story, blog, photos, etc.. can help another individual whether a stranger or a family/friend we encourage you to share. 

We want this to be a positive resource so that both you and your loved ones can vist and hear stories that fit your situations. Send us a comment or send an email to mdhilton@gmail.com

Veracruz, Mexico Photos!

Posted by mark on June 2, 2008

Here is Mark just grubbing on some good mexican food, and drinking a margarita.  It was really nice to be able to sit on this beach side restaurant and watch the ocean, the local families and just enjoy the day for a few hours before it was back to me since our trip to Veracruz was both business for me and a few days of relaxing.  While we were outside he never had to use the bathrooom or anything, and were were there for about 4 hours, 2 margaritas later 🙂  He did say though that this lunch and hooch was hard on him that night and he was gassy and in the bathroom a lot that night.

Unfortunately Mark has some sort of head and chest cold while we were there. He hasn’t had too many colds or such since his surgeries over a year ago, which is nice that he is usually really healthy.
