Doing OK

I got really sick a while ago and it took a while to get better. It was just a cold that merged into a flu but it was my first with the ostomy. Not to get too graphic but the diarrhea was crazy. Just water filling my pouch every 20 minutes. And I kept drinking to stay hydrated. This was a mistake. It fueled the process. I had this happen twice before but it was flushing something I ate that was irritating the intestinal tract. This was different and that night after work, exhausted, I did some research. Turns out you need to sip fluid (Gatorade) and eat foods that will dry your output out. Once I figured this out I was on the road to recovery. Took two days before I could drink normally without triggering more watery output. All better now. Was a thirsty time, though.
