I Miss Medical Supplies

This is Gus on one of the wonderful chux(the blue pad) we used. Those things are great!

When I grow up, I want to be an Ostomy Nurse. Really, I do! When Gus was in the hospital, I got to know the in-house ostomy nurse. I learned a lot from her and enjoyed our talks. In all honesty, I miss all the “things” that come with taking care of someone who is medically fragile. I know that sounds crazy but you just get used to all the symbols, letters and supplies. I really think I could help people who have new stomas and are completely devastated.

I also have a heart for people who have problems with their bowels…this is hard to deal with and if Gus and lived he would certainly have had a lot of bowel issues that would have required supplies like tranquility diapers, chux for his bed, and special wipes. I’m glad there are medical supply companies that ship these items to you….going to Walmart to pick these things up would be near impossible!

The world definately needs more people who have a heart for those with bowel problems. Most run the other direction.

This is such a heartfelt blog! I agree with cat about the bowel problem thing; Thank the G.I. doctors for what they do! If you need any medical supplies like alcohol swabs and other things then I hope I have provided some assistance.
