Hello All – I’m not a regular on this site, but I do log in every now and then to read the posts. I have found this forum to be such an amazing wealth of info/support/entertainment for ostomates – new/veteran/prospective. So, on that note, I just had to share this with you . . .
Last night I went to a birthday party where they served a delicious red velvet cake – yum! I had a piece(Ok, I had 2), drank a little wine, came home and didn’t think much of it . . . until this morning when my bag was full of BRIGHT RED liquid. My first thought was I was bleeding to death and for a split second I started to panic, until I remembered the cake - then I laughed out loud J Then I remembered the same thing happened a few years ago after I ate beet salad too. Guess red stuff just doesn’t digest well. Anyone else have stories that involve funky colors?
BTW – speaking of birthdays. Tomorrow (4/17) is the 3rd anniversary of my ileostomy surgery. Happy Birthday Lilly !! (the name I gave my stoma)
