So i'm washing the car since it's such a nice day here.
Mail woman comes and gives me a package. It's my new supplies and i'm happy it's here because i've run out.
  Then i start thinking.....i can't believe i'm happy to see this delivery.

LOL Slice....Last week I was on my last bag/wafer and my wafer was starting to pull away from my stoma. I woke up at 2am in a bed loaded with ...well you know what ~~my bag had leaked. I did not know what to do. I removed the bag, took a shower, changed my sheets, and replaced the dirty bag on my stoma. I loaded myself with stomadhesive to try to seal up the leaks. Finally, at 3:15 I went back to bed. At 4:45 I awoke to that Oh so warm feeling ~~ I had leaked again! I did not know if I should laugh at myself or cry. So, I got everything cleaned up again and I decided to try to stay up-right until morning. I called my nurse and begged her to have someone deliver me something to get me through the day.

At 11am my doorbell rang and it was the UPS man with a box. (I had ordered supplies 3 days prior) I felt like it was Christmas! I was so excited to see him.

Then I had the same thought you did....Am I really happy to get these things? Yup, I am.

Ha. Out of all the things i could have delivered to my house. I.....get......bags. Thrilling. I know back when i first came home from the hospital the home nurses that came over left me with different wafers and bags to try. I did keep all of them, even though they aren't the ones i use now. At least i have back ups to use in case i run out.
So for Christmas Amey's list looks like this:
Wafers
Bags
Stomahesive
Leakless night

LOL - I completely agree. My UPS guy has made lots of trips to my house over the last few months and he probably wonders why I am always SO excited to see him . . . ONE, he's adorable and TWO, he brings me my supplies !! If he only knew what was in those boxes!

Did you ever see the Seinfeld episode where Jerry's girlfriend had a closet full of Today's sponges? That's how I am with ostomy supplies! My insurance pays for a three month box of supplies, which last me six months, but I keep re-ordering, so I'm all stocked up for what...an ostomy supply shortage?!?
If you all ever get low, just email me, and I'll mail you some! :-)
