4 years of gutlessness!

I just realized that this week is my 4 year anniversary of being gutless (of course, that gets a bit fuzzy with the sheer number of surgeries involved! The final ileostomy surgery was at the beginning of July).

Four years ago this past May I let a good friend convince me to go to the ER because I looked "really awful", and I didn't come out of the hospital for more than a few days till nearly September and numerous surgeries later. At 4 years, I think I'm doing pretty darned well. It's amazing to think of how relatively short a time it's been and how much has happened since then. Life continues onwards and upwards, even if there are a few stumbles along the way.

This is what I did last week to celebrate. Track racing! Sadly, I was looking away from the camera.
