4 weeks since robotic prostatectomy surgery and this morning he was so happy his pad was dry all night.  He has been waking up at 3am to urinate and his pad has been wet, but it was dry!. When he woke up again at 6am to go,it was still dry.  He is very "relieved"  Still leaking a bit during the day though.......

So does he get to sleep in the same bed as you now that he's a good boy shocked

Just kidding... But yes it is a happy day when you hit milestones like this.

Getting through the night generally dry is a major milestone. Sounds like real good news.

As Dave said, that's the first step and hopfully the other steps will fall in place in due time. That's great!
