You can gently remind bratcat that her surgeon will want her strong and healthy for her next surgery so she will need to get some nourishment. I know it can be surprising to see the ostomy output (and it will be very similar with a jpouch) but it doesn't mean that food is not digesting. She is abosrbing calories in her terminal ileum it's just that now without a colon there isn't anything to pull the water from the waste and form a solid movement. Believe it or not many foods that coloned people eat come out the same way they are just hidden within the solid mass. Get her to do some walking as to jump start her appetite and feed her foods that she really craves.
