After a run in with a fire ant hill, i have discovered something you guys might need to know.  Hydrocortisone cream will loosen your wafer from your skin.  So, be really careful about putting that near your wafer.

what happened was, Sunday night my son and i were digging up the potatos in our garden, well there is a fire ant hill near there, and i didnt' even think about it. Well i guess while we were sitting there the ants crawled up on us, and bit us. What i have learned is that ant bites don't hurt right away. Well the next day both of us woke up with bites everywhere! it was horrible, we are still itchy, lol. My son even has them in his bellybutton!
I had most of mine on my bottom, made me glad i didnt have to worry about wiping it, lol. But i had two or three right at the bandaid part of my wafer. And that was horrible!
I took a shower monday night and changed the bag and then put the cream on there, and by this morning, the bandaid part was coming loose all around!
I learned two things, number one to stay away from fire ant hills, and number two, not to put hydrocotisone on my wafer!

You always have a great story to tell! Keep 'em coming, only I hope they're not so painful!
