Ok fellow ICer's My date for surgery with this new doc in NYC has been set for May 2nd at 5:00AM (it's scheduled for 8 hours minimum). I have a LOT of praying to do! I am so soooooooo scared! Now it's my turn to ask all of the questions instead of hunting down the answers. So Continent Urinary Pouchers.....I'm on my way. GET READY! :bow: :bow:
Thank you all for your continued love and warm support. I will need it in the weeks ahead and months to come.

As always, I am wishing for only the very best for you, and I do believe you have found it in this Dr and this hospital. I am very glad that you are now on your way to getting the help you have needed for so very long. You have been so very brave throughout everything, and you are my hero. I am so impressed with your tenacity of spirit and the way you have persevered overall. I will be here to support you every step of the way. Love, Amy

I am so happy and relieved! And now I can plan ahead for this. The waiting does stink, but it will allow you and your family to plan ahead too.
Did you get my e-mail?
Kara this is really great. I have to reiterate how relieved I feel now. We will all try to help you get through the waiting. And YOU! Lots of chicken soup and other hearty foods that will help you build up for the next month in preparation!

Best of luck, Kara. I hope all goes well for you and know that we are here for you. You deserve all that life has to offer, and I pray that this will allow you that :angel:

Hope you're able to make it to our meeting April 25th....the topic will be biofeedback, relaxation, and self-hypnosis to get us through the tough times. Lord knows we all need some of that, and it may get you through some of your anxious waiting period. Here's hoping for the best for you!

Congratulations Kara! I really think that afterwards once you are over the recovery phase of having the surgery you will be so much better off. I'll be happy to answer any questions. The UOAA also has a web site with a message board and one of the forums is just for continent ostomies. In fact they are having a Regional Conference on the weekend of April 21-23 and I think there will be alot about continent diversions. It is in Mount Laurel, NJ. If you can go it may be worthwhile as I am sure you will get lots of great info, as well as meeting others who have been through it. I am around if you need me. Its great to see you posting something positive! Judith

Lots and lots of healing prayers and energy your way, Kara! When you start feeling anxious or stressed-out, try to take some time to breathe slowly and deeply and repeat some positive affirmations to yourself like, "I am going to be healed" and "Positive healing energy is flowing through me." It may not seem like much, but the mind is a very powerful instrument that works subconsciously on our behalf.
Hugs and hugs! :grouphug: I'm praying that this is the answer to your prayers!
