Maybe what it needs is a set of teeth! It's not your typical jack-o'-lantern.😂🎃

Yes she does! Yet, she is very sensitive to people who have special needs. When she found out I needed an ostomy, she began educating my granddaughter about them and showed her people wearing appliances. My daughter wanted her to see my new normal and to not be afraid of it.

Stella, what  great idea!! This is not just funny its pretty darn cute!!  I  immediately had a good chuckle & thought that my husband would have loved to have seen this & he likely would have put it on the front step too!! I can't help but wonder if anyone else would have displayed it?

Thank you , Linda. If you want to see more examples of ostomy pumpkins, there's a whole slew of them on the internet. Some are quite amazing.

@sjlovestosing...well...I did go have a lookieloo!! Very interesting & creative pumpkins for sure. Did you go further & read that they even have an Ostomy Calender? Its showing models,  they all have & are all wearing a pouch!!  I've known of Fireman callender's, but this is unique on it's own!! I was impressed!!

I'll definitely check out the calendar! It's good to know that people are not ashamed of their ostomies. 😊 

God bless,

Stella
