Poopie Wars!!

I know not everyone will appreciate this posting, but oh well!! This is our life, our struggle!

Frankie has been constipated for as long as I can remember. He would go every 4-5 days via suppository. We did Miralax for a while but it seemed like it made him go too much or not at all depending on the dosage. So we stuck with suppositories.

Anyways!! It seems for at least right now we have won the poopie war!!! He has gone on his own for the last week! He went the 4 days prior to surgery and the 3 days since. He even went twice yesterday! Its wonderful!! He is not screaming and crying, we don't even know he has gone until he leaks or we smell it. Its such a wonderful thing!! Of course we are using more wipes and diapers -- but we don't have that fussy baby all the time because he is FULL OF POOP, or the crying baby because he is in pain from trying to go.

Its funny when you think about the little things that get us excited :) Life goes by so slow, progress is soooo slow so without the little things we would be left waiting for a long time!

I am glad that the poop wars are over for now, but I have a feeling that it has to do with the amount of IV fluids that they gave the little guy during surgery. Will is always an awesome pooper after a hospital stay. :0)

I am glad that I found you guys!! Welcome to the RTS blog circle!!
