I’ve been in contact with Ostomy Canada and they’ve asked me to submit an article by September which will be published in their next issue! How exciting is this as I’ve always said I want to be a part of awareness and change. As of 2016 an approximate number of 90,000 Canadians live productive lives with an ostomy, we just go about things a little differently at times. If you go to www.ostomycanada.ca you’ll see that it’s run by volunteers. If you feel you’d like to help a cause close to my heart (obviously) please take a look. Donations fund Ostomy Canada and no amount too small.
I can’t wait to see where I’ll be in another 4 months. I’m hoping my swelling will be less and my hernia gone, maybe even a trip to the desert 🌵 with some gal pals. Most likely one more surgery by years end to finish “fixing” where they removed the tumour and had to reconstruct. Once that’s done I’ll be able to sit better which is my biggest struggle. I really want to ride my bike Mango but it’s not very comfy to say the least. No biggie as she’s safe all locked up and maybe in 4 months we’ll ride again, just might be in the rain but I’ll be so happy I won’t care one bit!
