This morning as I awoke to the nurse to get my pain shot, I started looking at Twitter and found now a third company in the UK that makes a black opaque ostomy appliance. Aura®Plus. As I lay here cussing that the USA broke away from the UK close to 250 years ago, now thinking it's just another plot perpetrated by the man to keep the USA down by giving us terrible color options for our appliances, 3 different companies was all I could handle. I noticed another product, Aurum® Plus (same product, different name for different countries), that offers samples to customers in the USA! I signed up. The samples are offered through Welland Medical. I noticed the fine print: samples not available in all countries. After I signed up, I got the email: no distributors available in your country.
Shut down yet again, and the conspiracy continues. Is there some kind of pouch cover cabal that keeps these sleek-looking appliances out of North America?
I've been at the cottage so long I ran out of pouches and have been given the dreaded transparent pouches to get me through, just to add insult to injury.
Well, happy birthday to me! (It's tomorrow) At least today is my 10th day in advanced precautions, a fancy way to say quarantine since I was exposed to Covid. I should be able to leave my room and go to the cafeteria for a decent cup of caffeinated coffee and to the cafe for a delicious cookie called an elephant ear. Or if you are feeling French and fancy, a palmier, same cookie.
