Let’s Talk Poo 18 (Day 11, Infusion 9)

We are almost done!  Lee is very excited that after his donation tomorrow, he can splurge on Easter candy.  He’s done so well managing those cravings, which is a huge feat for him.  Anyone who knows him will tell you he eats an insane amount of candy on a daily basis.  Lee and I are both pretty surprised there were no withdrawals!

Ashley is also very excited to be finished with this process.  She has a life to get back to and school to finish up!  She’s also impressed me with her willingness and determination to make this work.

Today’s infusion, according to Ashley, was thinner than she’d like.  She holds the thicker infusions better.  She managed 7 h0urs today after a bowel movement this morning.  I encouraged Lee to make tomorrow’s last infusion as close to paint as he can manage even if it means a little less in quantity.  I’d like to see her get another one of those record retentions under her belt for this last one.
