I am glad that your Thanksgiving went all right and that you spoke up to your Aunt. You should never have to listen to the way she was talking to you.

As for hospital suggestions. Make sure you have a barrier cream of some sort with you. They gave Dillon some at the hospital, but I don't know if all hospitals do. We were told something like Penaten works great. Otherwise your rear will get sore from all the wiping and acidy output. Dillon also used premoistened, flushable wipes that you can buy in the toilet paper section. He said they felt a lot better than toilet paper. You may need to have numerous underware with you. For the first few days Dillon had a little leakage (and it was very minor) but it necessitated changing his underware.

As before, you know the importance of getting up and walking and then walking some more. This will really help if you have gas pains. Dillon was never bothered by them very much. And don't be concerned by the amount and wateriness of your output the first couple of days. As soon as you start eating it will thicken up and slow down greatly.

We will be thinking of you next week.
