I went to bed at 7pm last night took an enema, then slept until 2am and took another one and woke up at 6:30 had a 3 bm's instead of 6 this am and none since then.  I don't want to jinx myself but I am hoping I will be ok.  I have a lot going on this week and am nervous about being sick while out. Have a work dinner wed nite, I may skip and then Friday wedding rehearsal dinner (can prob be in and out in 2 hours) and most likely skipping my father in-laws 60th on Sat night and will take immodium and go to the wedding on sunday and on Monday will lay on the couch all day.  I still hope this is not too much.
Please keep your fingers crossed for me!

Beth....sounds like the perfect plan. I'm happy to hear things are starting to improve for you.

The imodium will help during the times out...that's what it's for. It'll be a big, fast week....sometimes the anticipation of them can be more stressful than going through it.

XXXXXXXXXX! Kick back & relax at events whenever possible, meaning, 5 or 10 minutes of quiet time in a nearby lounge or such if you feel that things are becoming a bit too much. / Old Hat

Woo hoo on some relief!

I've never considered doing the two enemas in one night... Interesting idea!

Hang in there - and listen to your body - it will tell you when you've had enough.
