go go and toughenough I am 49 and children are 23 and 20. We should be loving life and having a wonderful time w/husbands but we are faced yet with another challenge in life!
My husband has been fantastic throughout this whole process. I have made sure he has an outlet for himself. He loves to golf so he joined a league. I feel guilty at times that I am not who I was but if the shoe was reversed we would be there for him/them. When I was 1st dx w/UC I gave him an option that I would sign on the dotted line (divorce) because after reading all the text on the disease and procedures and meds. I knew this was going to be a rough road in life. He opted not to and has been my savior (angel). Not to say that it is still rough at times (as a couple) however, I try to make sure when I feel good (which I lie a lot) we have the best of times when we can.
We all know through the disease and operations that Life is too short and WE have to make the best of it, no matter what!
