Dear fellow Jpouch.net readers, hello and how are you? I know you don’t know my full story and I apologize. It’s mainly because I’m too lazy to type it all up that you haven’t seen a complete posting from me. If you’ve stuck around long enough, you’ve seen my hernia (which is still there), you know that I keep track of numbers, that I’m healthy again and like to ride bikes, and that I’m the guy behind the pouchoscopy entry on Wikipedia. But you don’t know that I spent most of 2008 in the hospital (or at least it felt like that) or the specific circumstances surrounding my bout with Ulcerative Colitis. I promise to write that all up for you soon. In the meantime, drumroll…

I’m a father!

So welcome to world baby Mills. His name is Colston Thomas Mills, born on 3/6/2010, he was 8 pounds 7 ounces (big!) and he’s perfect. Like Mark and Megan’s joke about the bowels, I have a bit of concern for the future of his colon. But, just in case you’re wondering, it’s working really well right now, and he has some fantastic pressure in both ends of his plumbing!

There was a time when I couldn’t lay on my left side because it aggravated my Colitis too much. 4, count them, FOUR years of my life I couldn’t sleep on my left side. Take that, Colitis! Here I am asleep with the little guy. Sleeping with him (on my left side!) is my new favorite activity.

I promise a full story of my Colitis, waiting too long to get it treated, surgery, and recovery. For now, though, please join me in welcoming our baby to the world.

You see, it gets better, I promise.

    I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering problems with your
    site. It appears as though some of the text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please
    comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This could be a problem with my internet browser
    because I’ve had this happen previously. Many thanks
