Summer Crumbs

A friend emailed saying she had been afraid to ask how Oliver was doing, figuring no news was a death knell, and I wrote back, reprising. Some of you know this and some of you don't.

Actually, little boy has regained the ability to control his bladder. He was sleeping on the "Depends sheets" we were buying at the drugstore and one day we saw him trying to urinate on one of them rather than sleeping on it, which he had learned to do. In less than a week, he was no longer leaking. We kept expressing for another couple weeks because I thought perhaps that was part of the retraining/healing/whatever actually happened. Then we quit that, and he's been fine ever since, even though boy does he piss a lot because he is on steroids.

There's a lesson here. Sometimes holding on and refusing to give up actually work.
