The final “Take Down”

It is set! The third and final surgical stage of my journey is scheduled for November 1st.  This surgery is refered to as the “take down” and for some reason, whenever I think about it I can’t help but hum Europe’s “The Final Countdown.” As with any Arrested Development fan, this song immediately causes me to picture the character Gob dancing around with a knife between his teeth and his shirt billowing in the wind. Thus, a smile comes across my face when I think about this surgery, and not just because it is my final step. It is crazy to think that in just over 7 weeks I will have a fully functioning J-pouch!! It seems like just weeks ago I was learning all about ostomies  and getting ready for surgery #1.  More to come, but for now enjoy this…
