Ode To a Stoma
You know you have a stoma when.... You change the bed thrice in a night. But, you are still here to sleep in your bed. You know you have a stoma when.... People are banging on the door of the train's loo you've been in for half an hour. But, you are on that train going somewhere special. You know you have a stoma when.... The dress you dreamed of wearing to your sons wedding doesn't quite hide the bulge. But, you are there to see your son marry his beautiful bride. You know you have a stoma when.... You have a RADAR key to open the door to every disabled loo in the country. But, you are here to travel the length and breadth of our beautiful Island. You know you have a stoma when the only other option is death. But, you revel in the new life you have, the grandson you might never have known and the new friends that come into the life you never properly appreciated.
