I did get out of the hospital today. A good friend picked my up at the hospital and drove me home. Dropped me off then drove back to STL. Now that is a true friend. He did not want Susie to make the long drive. I named my damn bag “the shart bucket”.

I am going to have a lot of fun with noise that thing makes. The only problem I am having now is the dog wants to lick the damn thing. Mine is high above my belt line and hangs out over my pants. Then my pull over shirt covers it. Works fine for dumping as I can just kneel by the john and dump. I can live with the shart bucket for 90 days.

    Hey Kerry
    My resected colon "Larry" says to tell that shart bucket "Hi"

    Sounds like you are doing well and I am so glad you are back!!!

    Take care and keep the dog off of "sharty".

    Hey Buddy..........
    If you can find an old halter top that one of your nurse friends may have left layin around (just kiddin) they serve as a good thing to put on while ya sleep and it keeps the bag in place. Its not to tight so that it can do its thing but not so loose to where it will let it slide around.......Glad your home, Buzz

    Glad you got home safe and sound (I wasn't meaning your sanity, just your body on the sound part), what a good friend you had to bring you home.
    Um, the name you gave your bag is, um, well, hmmm, well, uh, okay... "different" to say the least.
    Glad your home Kerry.

    The two of you just crack me up! I hated my bag, and i don't mean to scare you guys, but my 90 day ileostomy turned into 15 months! By that time, i had a good size stricture, and to this day have not been able to properly train my bowels (reversal was in May of 2009). I didn't name my bag. I hated it too much. Ileostomies are no fun.

    Good Luck Kerry
