Not a silly question, but here's a rather silly answer: I had a temporary colostomy 10 years ago and had little trouble sleeping on my stomach. Prior to my cancer/ostomy stage, I had two pregnancies and could sleep partially on my stomach, right up until delivery. Would you like to know how? LOL
My husband and I still have his post-college, first piece of furniture purchase - a waterbed. Yes, it was bought in 1981, we've changed the liner (read, mattress) a few times but we love this bed. I joke we will never, ever get rid of it! It's low to the ground, our Golden can jump right into it and she loves it too. It also has the clever headboard bookshelf, for our alarm clock, tissues, small lamps.
I'm not even sure if you can purchase brand new water beds anymore but we are never getting rid of it. My mom has a fit because here we are - a couple in their 50s - still sleeping in a waterbed. I guess to her she'd want me to have that feminine looking bed, with dust ruffle, 17 pillows, etc. LOL
