It sneaks up on everyone. I look in the mirror and see a white haired older man looking back at me. When I was young, I would have called that man old. I've had a heart by-pass and more recently a colectomy. They removed a fairly large part of my colon during that procedure. As a result of my colectomy, I had another surgery for an incisional hernia. That didn't work and now I have a grapefruit sticking out of my belly. I'll have another surgery to correct that.
