I don't have a fever...just coughing and runny nose. I'm not super duper sick--just mucusy enough to rile up my stomach. Gross.
I just looked at Zoe and she's totally red and regular looking, so that's good.
I'm still having twinges of pain around my stoma but not as much as before. They just feel like pinches and then sometimes an ache...maybe my muscles are just getting a little freaked out cuz of all the coughing. I will try the pillow idea! Can coughing injure my stoma since it's so new?
