I've been so lucky that in the 6 years since surgery I've not had any issues. Well I ate some coconut macaroons yesterday and my poor intestines just couldn't take it. Luckily it's just a partial blockage and I get to go home soon. Another reminder that moderation is key when introducing foods to your system again! #ostomy #ostomyawareness #crohnsdisease #uc #ulserativecolitis #coconutmacaroons

The road to parenthood has not been an easy one for me or my husband. When I was about 15 I think I realized I might not have children in the traditional way. But I was ok with that. Adoption has been in my family for several generations. 4 of my siblings were adopted through foster care and my aunt was adopted at birth by my grand parents. Although I had accepted this fact when I had my ostomy surgery my surgeon gave me new hope that I would be able to cary a baby. My husband and I tried for several years but after 2 miscarriages it just seemed that that was not the way our family was meant to be formed. In the blink of an eye we were given the opportunity to adopt our daughter and it just seemed that it was meant to be. It's been a year and a half since we brought Daisy home and we have finally been given a court date and everything will be finalized next month. My husband and I are so blessed that we have a good relationship with Daisy's birth family and she will always know everything that has ever been done for her was done out of love. So excited for her to officially become an Epperson.  #ostomy #ostomyawareness #crohnsdisease #uc #ulserativecolitis #adoption #lovemakesafamily

In honor of #nationalsiblingsday I thought I would share this gem. I am the youngest of SEVEN children! These six have helped me cope with this illness and my ostomy in so many ways it's hard to keep track. Mostly their humor is what gets me through tough times. My favorite is how they say my bum is now "purely decoration". Wouldn't trade these 6 for the world! #ostomy #ostomite #crohns #chrohnsdisease #uc #ulserativecolitis

Little known fact about me... I actually was a hockey player from about the age of 9 to 13 at the time of my diagnoses. Because of struggling to get me into remission and gain weight I had to quit playing the game I love. Although I could've gone back to playing by my junior year I had lost to much training time and would've had a difficult time keeping up with my peers. While this disease can take so much it also gives back. I joined cheerleading my freshman year of high school and fell in love with the sport. By the time I was a junior I was captain of my high school squad. This disease has and always will bring some dark times but it brings some light as well. #hockey #crohnsdisease #cronhs #ostomy #ulserativecolitis

While I was rocking Daisy to sleep last night frozen was on the t.v. Now I have seen this move about 1,000 times but last night for some reason "let it go" held new meaning for me. I thought back to the first time I truly excepted my disease. (Probably about 2 years after diagnoses) and this song perfectly summed up how I felt in that moment. "I'll rise like the break of dawn let it go let it go that perfect girl is gone". Once I excepted who I was and what this disease was my life seemed a heck of a lot better. If you've been living under a rock for the past 4 years I recommended you listen to this song and see how it perfectly pertains to chronic illnesses. #ostomy #ostomyawareness #crohnsdisease #crohns #ulserativecolitis #chronicillness #frozen #ostomymommy
