Lilys Appointment

Posted in Uncategorized by Sarah Skeen on August 14, 2007

Well, we had another appointment with Lilys specialist yesterday. I was hoping for some real answers but as it turns out the doc thinks its a psychological problem. Lily is on an adult dose of stimulant laxative so it’s not a dosage problem. She just doesn’t want to go. We were given a couple of websites to check out. We were also told not to let her go more than 2-3 days without pooping. I had to give her an enema yesterday because it had been 4 days. The doc doesn’t want her rectum to get all stretched out from holding it again so that is why we will have to do the saline enemas every 2-3 days until she is going on her own again. It’s all so frustrating and I feel like I’m never going to get her potty trained. I hate seeing her so uncomfortable and I HATE giving her enemas. The crying and sad look on her face just makes me want to cry….which I have done the past couple of times. My poor little girl!

    you poor thing. What an awful situation. I will continue to keep you guys in my thoughts. Hang in there. Did the doctor give any indication how long this could last? It seems like this has been going on far too long. I know you have got to be feeling that way too. Poor Lily 😦
