Congrats on your poo! (I never thought I would be writing that!) You know it's only a matter of time before someone from the forum decides to keep a picture of their poo in their wallet. I can picture it now..."This was poo years ago, here's poo during the terrible 2's, poo's graduation".  tongue

Bennie, what a great idea, then I can show my Gi what I am talking about.  I try to explain the poo, but he says if I am looking in the toilet that much I have too  much time on my hands......don't you all look in the toilet???  Am I crazy, I check for blood, mucous, consistancy, girth....maybe I do have too much time on my hands. :-)

Congratulations on your awesome poo!!  I am so happy for you.  Hope I can say the same tomorrow, because it isn't happening today. confused

I'm only going to post in here this last time because I'm really not wanting to jinx things... But I was pleasantly surprised this morning again.. oh, btw.. I took the Lialda and take one in the Am and one in the PM instead of 2 at once in the morning... maybe that's what is helping..

So glad I found this forum - laughing is good for one! LOL

Anyway, the probiotics are working in my favor but yes we do look in the toilet a lot!!  I am looking forward to the day when I can look first thing in the morning - first BM and NOT see blood!!  Elaine
