So I had put Ra-Ra into nursery today (which isn’t her usual day) went and sat at my parents, then made my Dad breakfast before heading down to the hospital.
Today I had an appointment with General Surgery (General Surgery *salute* to all you HIMYM fans out there) I thought I would be seeing my surgeon but nope I saw the Stoma nurse which was fine because that’s who I wanted to see anyway! I needed some more barrier rings and my peristomal skin is quite sore again. *Naked Stoma* straight off the bat in the post!
With my impending Dietetics appointment on Tuesday I decided to note down everything I ate and drank unhealthy or not so I could have a thorough appointment. Because lets face it I have no idea what the appointment is even for!
In less than 4 weeks my brother in law is going to marry the most important woman in his life, the nicest girl in the world. Last night was her Hen Do, for my readers across the pond it’s another word for batchelorette party. I can tell you now I was so nervous about going, being in a proper night out outfit, being around pretty and slim girls made me feel incredibly self conscious even though I knew everyone there. But it was my first night out since having my ileostomy surgery in April. Read more
I’ve been talking to someone via my Facebook page for the blog. I mentioned about doing a sort of positive thought board. So when they felt fed up they could look at it and see how far they have come. I do these quite frequently they vary between lists, pictures well anything visual! In a way my blog posts can be included too. Read more
So in aid of raising awareness and feeding people’s curiosity I asked a lot of people to ask me questions about living with a stoma and boy! I wasn’t disappointed! Thank you to everyone that pitched in, hopefully it helped!
So apparently when I’m looking in the mirror to put my bag on and not really paying attention I put my bag on with a major wonk! I did it last night and thought F*@# it but oh my God it drove me insane today. It made me feel EVEN fatter than I have in awhile, which is not a good thing for me to be feeling so I definitely need to start paying attention to my bag’s position when I apply it. Read more
So like I said we had our eldest nephew over for the weekend. 00Steve decided that we should go to the local Owl Sanctuary in Kirkleatham. I decided to make up a scavenger hunt for them to do in the woods, this was to keep them both occupied and made me feel like they were going to learn something new, well I hoped! Plus owls are kick ass! Read more
We had our eldest nephew round this weekend so my sister and her husband could go to a party for her birthday and enjoy it child free for a change. We went swimming today and I figured why not document it since its my first time swimming since having a stoma. Read more
