That sounds nice.
My WOC nurse only trained me on Convatec and my approach is to stick with what works. I do have a decent number of Coloplast Mios but I never felt comfortable trying them out. I did send them a comment that it would be nice if they had videos showing how to apply them. I do have an emergency kit with the Coloplast products in them as they are one piece and look simpler to use in a pinch. One of the samples kit I got had a nice little bag to hold two pouches, wafers, wipes, spray, scissors and a mirror (mirror and scissors were included). I have never had to use the emergency kit but it gives me some piece of mind having it around.
This is my week off as well and I'm enjoying the cold stuff, particularly water. Nowhere near 85 here and we might have to wait until July for temps like that.
