The older kids went to a party so it was just Paul and I and the trisomy tribe at home. We almost forgot it was New Year's Eve and just had a quiet evening eating Paul's home made pizza, watching some of our UK DVDs from amazon - Rev and Downton Abby and were in bed before midnight!
We have used the ileostomy bags marked "in case of severe leakage" and Noah went 48hours without leaking! These are convex bags and can have a belt attached so I think we will see if we can get a bigger supply and a belt once the holidays are over.
We dared to take Noah out to the shops to buy a new pair of sandals and then got an ice-cream. I had enough supplies with us to be able to change his bag in a public toilet (how terrible that would be) and of course that meant everything was fine.
We may dare to take him to the cinema or McDonalds on Monday.
Today we are having a celebration birthday meal for Beth as she returns to Oz tomorrow and her birthday is Jan 4th so I'd better go to the supermarket and buy some food! Beth is kindly babysitting while Paul and I do this.
Joyful and Triumphant
