On Wednesday, July 15th, I went back to Cleveland to have my AUS activated.  Since January 2009, I have been using on an average of 3-4 diapers and 7-8 pads during a 24 hour period.  Since Wednesday, I have not used a thing!!!  I did sneeze one time and did get a little wet; however, it had been almost 4 hours since I had cycled the AUS.  I will play golf this weekend and do a little yard work.  After that, I should have a good idea what to expect as my normal active routine gets back into full swing.
