Holly has been feeling so much better  than before the surgery.  She looks and acts like 'our' old Holly.  So nice to have her back.  Her 5 yr old daughter has been asking millions of questions.  Naturally!  She had seen the scar , and the bag.  So, the other day she kept asking to see under the bag.  Holly finally gave in to her wish.  She looked at it real closely, and said "Mommy that is your brain in your belly."  So the name for her stoma is now "Belly Brain".  The surgery has helped Jorden also.  She does not have to be so worried about her Mommy all of the time.  What a blessing!  Smiles and hugs, Jan

For when my grandson wanted to see mine so the next time I changed my pouch I used a clear one so when I went over to theor house I showed it to him, it was " Thats cools grandpa, it kinda looks like mommys lips"
I still am getting dirty looks from my daughter in law, years later.
