We just got back from a weekend of camping... My very first as an ostomate!!! It was glorious!! I can absolutely say that this was the best camping trip I have ever been on! I felt fantastic the whole entire weekend and I have never been so happy to be pooping in a bag! Our outhouse for the weekend was less than desirable but having a bag made it so I didn't have to worry about figuring out how to make a clean place to sit in a hurry multiple times a day and night! I slept amazing as I only get up once to empty my bag at night unlike previous camping trips that had me RUNNING two or three times a night if not more.
The weekend was spent enjoying God's beautiful creation with 13 awesome teenagers! I feel so blessed that I was able to spend time with them this trip instead of worrying about my own needs. I did end up with one leak that I caught in time and was able to easily change. I definitely felt a little proud of myself for handling a bag change in the middle of the woods with ease when six months ago I was fumbling in the comfort of my own home!! God is so good and I still can't believe that He has blessed me so much in this way!!! #nocolonstillrollin #camping #withteens #2017 #firstcampingtrip #ostomate #outhousesaregross #waterfall #bagchange #elvinforest #ulcerativecolitis #devilshopyard #godscreation #singshispraise #togodbetheglory
