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 […]

Let’s Talk Poo 17 (Day 10, Infusion 8)

A busy day yesterday threw me off of my game and I forgot to post.  Ashley infused 2 slightly thin paint consistency infusions today.  She was able to hold for 5.5 hours. We still haven’t seen any negative effects, which is great.  She is noticing that her bowel movements are smelling differently now.  More like […]

Let’s Talk Poo 16 (Day 9, Infusion 7)

Lee was back on track today.  We had a two bottle, paint consistency donation at about 11am.  It seems like Ashley has more difficulty retaining when she’s had a day off.  It’s not a very scientific observation, since it’s just been twice. She had a bowel movement prior to her infusion, as usual.  Today she […]

Let’s Talk Poo 14 (Day 7, Infusion 6)

More than half way through our 10 day process and I’m happy to report that it’s still been relatively uneventful.  Ashley held yesterday’s infusion a full 24 hours to the minute.  She continues to feel happy and motivated. Lee was able to produce enough donation today for the standard 2 infusions of paint consistency.  Ashley […]

Let’s Talk Poo 13 (Day 6, Infusion 5)

Today was a good day.  Ashley continued to enjoy her new found energy.  She cleaned the house again today and washed her car inside and out.  I’m always so surprised that she can move around that much while holding an infusion. She’s had some gas, but we are pretty sure it’s due to the fiber […]

Let’s Talk Poo 12 (Day 5)

Well, today was a bust. Lee couldn’t produce enough ‘material’ to create an infusion so we took the day off. Ashley was bummed because she is just wants to ‘get this over with’. Lee was disappointed because it means one more day until he can gorge himself on candy.

Let’s Talk Poo 11 (Day 4, Infusion 4)

Another successful and uneventful day, which is a good thing.  Ashley managed to have a regular bowel movement before her infusion today, which was good.  I should note that she had been having solid bowel movements prior to starting.  Her Sulfasalazine has been keeping her inflammation down.

Let’s Talk Poo 10 (Day 3, Infusion 3)

Day 3 and things continue to go well. Ashley held her infusion yesterday for a whopping 22 hours! She didn’t ever feel the need to evacuate and, in fact, had to try and force it this morning as Lee was preparing her next infusion. I’ve definitely noticed a shift in Ashley’s attitude. When we began […]

Let’s Talk Poo 9 (Day 2, Infusion 2)

WARNING: POTENTIALLY GRAPHIC DESCRIPTIONS AHEAD Day 2!  Ashley managed to hold her first infusion last night for 5 full hours with very little trouble.  This morning’s infusion donation came around 11:30am and was ready for Ashley by 12:00.  Today Lee had enough donation material for two bottles, as suggested.  He managed to get one cream […]
