Took me a bit to name mine Stan! It's definetely a male. Prima donna, moody, pain in the backside...must be a male. Never mind it looks like a circumsised..ya know.

I figure Stan should vote personally. He talks enough! Anyway...get to know it's personality a bit. Then a name will come to you!

Mine, well, he has to have a certain temp of water. When he gets excercised he gets bigger. When he has cold water he gets shrinkage. Really. When I'm sick he gets pale. Really. He likes showers...gets all happy and bigger. I swear to Gawd he has a proper personality. He is Stan...hear him speak! I do slap him if he gets out of hand.

Only time will tell what your stoma personality will be! Then a name will come to you. But it may be something you cant type here..erm.

Was thinking LouiseAmes...which evolved into Lola. (Okay, "Losa" would be closer, but who doesn't want something named Lola, and anyway, "Losa" sounds like "loser" and that quality you and your stoma are not!)

Mine is Mr President... annoying, full of crap, and thankfully temporary. My back end is Mr Vice President... useless, meaningless, and hopefully in a couple of weeks, will rise to power.

Sounds like you and he/she are getting along pretty well, Amy. Can't believe it's been two weeks already. Wishing you continued good health with your new 'offspring'.
