We have accomplished our biggest Hirschsprung's Milestone!
I officially have a potty trained 4 year old little boy....I must confess I could not be any prouder!!!! Dylan has done really well with the laxative and fiber supplement, this is helping him go twice a day. He has done so well, and seems to be so proud of himself too. He likes his big boy underwear!!! Dylan has been potty training for 11 days, although we had that one episode of a blockage when we first started once we go that cleared, things became more regular thanks to the laxative and fiber supplement. He had a few accidents in the beginning but after the 3 or 4 day mark he did quite well. Our only problem is that Dylan seems to "hold" it...I find him crossing his legs and basically have to drag him to the toilet at times. But he is doing excellent and I honestly didn't expect things to go as good as they have. I am so very thankful!!!!!!!
He seems to be so proud of himself every time he gets on the toilet to go, when hes finished he has the biggest smile and of course he likes to see MOMMY be proud of him and tell him what a good job he's done ....I am truly blessed!!!! Hopefully this is the light at the end of the tunnel with our Hirschsprung's Disease journey, although I know things will creep up later, and he will probably still have minor issues with his intestines, but over all I think he has conquered his Hirschsprungs Disease battle and has showed it, HE IS THE BOSS....Prayers to all of you who are still struggling with HD and potty training. And to those who haven't started potty training, please use Dylan's story for inspiration and hope and know that nothing is impossible and things do get better. Dylan has had a rough 4 years, but to see him come this far and accomplish potty training has been so worth the wait. My heart is filled with compassion for all of you going down this same road...May God bless you and help you on your Hirschsprung Journey...
