So Long, Miralax!

In January 2010, Kaitlyn decided that an admission to our local hospital's pediatric unit was something that she wanted to cross off her "To-Do List".
Remember this post?
We were discharged on a maintenance dose of Miralax and was informed that this could be a long-term addition due to her special needs and sensory processing issues.*
Um, also due to her stubborn behavior and desire to be in control.

But, I am happy to say that it has been 2 weeks now and we are Miralax free!
Don't get me wrong....I think it is the best thing since sliced bread and it really allowed me to not worry about her bowels and another hospital admission because of how it works.
But she is growing up.
She is understanding.
She has more of a knowledge base for these things.
And, quite truthfully, it is one less thing that I have to worry about

This is good.
