 I found another thing that I have added to the bag that goes to the hospital with me.  Something that really bugs me during an extended hospital visit is my hair. After a few days there is a hospital smell that it takes on and I can't get away from it. They have tried shampooing (shampoo is the fake stuff real poo can be found in my pouch) my hair. If they have shampoo it is junk and if they don't they have used liquid hand soap (oh horrors). I had my hair done yesterday and my stylist suggested dry shampoo. I had tried it years ago, but it made a bunch of flakey stuff when I brushed it out.  The current stuff you spray on your roots, let it sit for a moment then brush it out.  I tried it, it works, no flakes and no smell.  There is now a can in my bag.  Just a thought.

Not that I have long hair to try it on, but I've always been intrigued by "dry shampoo". It sounds like a good idea for your hospital survival kit :)

Just your friendly neighborhood ostomate.

After my long coma and even longer of 4 months-I asked them to shampoo my hair-so the aid did, left me in bed (as I could not be moved) just left me there with that horror of their shampoo dried in my hair--never mind that fact that my hair was all dried up and knoted- I didn't get a shampoo until I got to the nUrssing home.. I was a mess. Never again their shampoo-just conditioner for me.. just left me with wet head and ecky dried shampoo-Lost 12 inches of hair when I came home..  Conditioner is best!!! IF I HAVE TO..........

The problem with being 68 years old and 6 feet in height is that I look down on a whole lot of bald heads  🖖
