Born Freeee...as freee as the grass.....

Ok, this may be humorous to some. But Stan would like some air. It's been very warm here in the UK. I've been working through it all. Sod it, Tues Weds it's to get cold again. (typical on MY weekend!)

Anyway, Stan needs some air. He's tired of his bag.

As an ileostomist (is that a word??) he goes when he darn well feels like it! And a right bugger he is!

Is there a cap for stan that will still give the poor lad some air???? Just for an hour or so???

Its embarrassing asking this I assure you.

Misty and Stan

Hey you, this all so new to me, BUT I'm sure my stoma nurse mentioned something of the sort to me, when I told her I wanted to continue playing badminton. Have you asked your nurse? I'm at the hosp again tomorrow, so will double check for you. (wish I had one of those today!!)

A bikini for a stoma!!! Yuppers, that would be fab. Ya know, I could make millions! Hahhhaaa!!!

Seriously though, in the heat of summer, what are our poor stomas to do?? Besides leak in public the *$&'s. But in private, if we make them happy, will they behave?

Misty, you're KILLING ME over here!!!

I think the best we could do with our ileos is a very, very small pouch. Then hold off on the coffee and sodas or that sucker will blow right off!

Please send a peeeeppeeee teeeee peeeeee please. You americans think of everything!

Stan had 5 minutes of air today. He was overjoyed. He actually behaved himself! Then Freya jumped on the bed to have a nose. (my Irish Terrier) Stan was so frightened I almost lost him! (they ARE just like peni's arent they?)

A cold nose can do that ...

Are you sure you don't have peepee-teepee's for the male baby population? From my understanding it was created to prevent the little suckers from spewing when they are set free.

Oh, the cold nose didnt impact Stan. She was just looking! She is always one to barge the door open when I empty. She's FASCINATED by this whole process. She sits there, cocks her head, looks at me...cocks her head to the other side, and proceeds to sneeze and back out of the room.

Only sneezes and backs out when Mexican food has been consumed previously I hasten to add! (dont blame her actually)

What's with the sneezing?? Darwin sneezed every evening on my leg when I prepare his food. He gets up on the counter, sniffs his dog food, goes back and blows snot all over my legs.

Otherwise, my dogs don't care at all about my bag or the contents. Ahh, the love....
