Virtual Holiday Party Update
At today's meeting, we talked about holiday traditions, favorite foods and the general well-being of all people present. Each person gave an update on how they are doing and what celebrations and traditions they value this time of year. A few take-aways:
Having an overstock of ostomy supplies was something that lots of people felt was important -- especially given some of the supply chain issues occurring recently. It was suggested that people place a 30 day supply order 3-4 days early each month as insurance companies will generally allow that little bit of "overlap." If you do this regularly, you can easily accumulate additional supplies over the course of a year.
