Oh yes I remember those first days home with Bill! Once we got the tears out of the way we settled in to a routine of our/his own combining things he learned in Rehab, adapting and discarding as necessary! Now 6 years later we are still going through that same process for a whole host of reasons .... for example - Bill has an ileostomy now because of gall bladder problems he developed last May - as a result completely different bowel routine of course ... we have learned to be flexible, adapt and be creative, it's ongoing!! I believe a person has to keep an open mind all the while remembering what works for some doesn't always work for others! I think the most helpful resource through all this has been sharing information right here with you folks !
