Honestly, I think you NEED to tell your parents before she comes. I would hope they would say something to her. That is something I would absolutely not tolerate. She obviously has NO idea what you've been through and what this ostomy means for you. What an awful woman. If they don't say something to her, you need to. Maybe even do some reasearch supporting the fact that AN OSTOMY IS PERFECTLY HYGENIC, and give it to her. There is no reason she should make you feel like an outsider in your own home. God, I hope that woman has some karma coming her way.
