My daughter, Bratcat, had her staples removed on Friday. That has made a big difference. Even better news is that all the tests from the surgery came out great. No dysplasia and not Crohns. And on Saturday, she removed her wafer and showered au natural! And we were able to put a new appliance on. And it didn't take an hour!  So far, so good. Shhhh (don't want to jinx it).
Bratcat is having more good hours during the day than tough ones. Less tears. More smiles.
BTW, Bratcat does have her own screen name here. She rarely posts but does read the forums daily. I know sometime in the future she will be stopping in and saying hi.
