Thanks for the info. He's doing OK. I don't think he's really had time to think about
the ileostomy b/c his mouth hurts so much, but we went to the doctor yesterday and she said he was dehydrated and she was thinking about
admitting him to the hospital for IV fluids, so when we got home he took two Tylenol III and had some mac and cheese and we got him to drink a quart of Smart Water. He had a small piece of cake and his spirits seemed to be up. He's had to change his bag 4 times since the surgery and they've all been with a nurse's assistance. He gets real queezy and light headed. He says it's because it's sensitive and kind of gross, but the nurse assures me that it will get easier each time. Thanks for asking!
