Getting there.

Well it's been over a week now since my operation and, touch wood, each day is a little better than the one day before. I'm not strong enough to get out in the garden yet but after 160 mls of rain (another 40 this) morning I'm chomping at the bit.
After living with and trying to understand my disease for the last 6 years I feel like a blank canvas that needs some masterful artistry performed on it. I have two or three paths I can go down from here but might just sit back and see which one pulls on me the most.

Operation Reversal.

Oh well, I knew it was going to happen sooner rather than later. It’s what the Doctor calls a reversal.
That’s where they reconnect my colostomy back up to the J-pouch they formed when I had my first surgery.

What does this mean? Well I won’t be riding or gardening for a few weeks while I recover, not that there's been much gardening being done anyhow, and I won’t be needing to wear a colostomy bag anymore, yeah.

So if all goes well it should be all plain sailing for me from hear on, the only unknown is how dependent I will be on knowing how far away and where the next toilet is.

Anyways on that positive thought,

until next time

Driest Ever February

Our wettest month, February, of the year has turned out to be the driest ever.

Might be looking for a name change to My Veggie Desert.

Planted - Nothing.
Harvested - Nothing.
