Musings from an Orthodox Jewish work at home mom of twins with Autism Spectrum Disorders.

On the way to probable cecostomy our latest protocol has Wilma leaking like a faucet. My 9 year old is back in pullups and I go into public bathroom stalls with her to see if she needs to be changed. I carry adult size pullups and wipes in my purse. I just wanted to share here and say….. argh! Thanks. That’s all.

Nervous and excited about the possibility of cecostomy.  On the one hand, she will likely ONLY poop in the evening– in a toilet— during the time we run the flush through the tubing.  On the other hand, it’s surgery— it’s more drastic, and it might be difficult to get used to the lifestyle changes needed (an hour a day of sitting on the toilet, dealing with the tube….. oy.

During this protocol (NIGHTLY ENEMAS— EVERY friggin night….), the GI specialist is out of town.  For a month.  Out of the country.  Yeah, fun times.
