I went out for a walk this evening and wore my t-shirt from last year’s ostomy awareness walk. 

Happy Ostomy Awareness Day to everyone. 😀

Good for you Liza! Wasn't it just a year or so ago you did the 5 K  walk to raise funds for Crohns & Colitis? You had been thru such a bad time & came out the other side alive & reasonably well!! My thoughts & prayers are with you as your headed into another big surgery, but this time your informed & good & almost ready for what your facing! I look forward to updates when your up to it! 

Both you & Glenn... not gregoir... lol,  have been an appreciated &  good contribution here! Thank you for reminding us all how lucky we are to have a life saving stoma! I know I sure feel mine saved not just my life but my sanity too!

Thanks Linda. Yep, it was a year ago I did the two 5ks to raise money for Ostomy Awareness. One in Portland on Oct 5th and one in Boise Oct 12th.  😀

Happy (belated) Ostomy Awareness Day, everyone! I hope that you've all enjoyed a day doing something you love. 

Just your friendly neighborhood ostomate.
