The latest with Ian

Test results= normal healthy boy
X-ray showed lots and lots of backed up poo
Currently on day 2 of 3-day colon cleanout= miralax + me & ian each night in bathroom, suppositories producing massive poops in toilet
doctor said it's not an overnight fix, expect to be committed to a few months process, relapse rate is very high.
asked doctor about enemas(not our dr., he's on vacation this week), he said they would get the job done too, but are more "invasive", but he didn't say no either.  Invasive to my ears means cleaned out thoroughly= no backed up poo= good thing.
supposed to schedule appt. with our dr. next week, he will tell me his plan of keeping Ian on Miralax for months and i will tell him my plan.  We'll see where we end up.
Happy Thanksgiving.
