A:Crazy Blonde -Thanks for posting all this - there's some really good information and insight in your first post.Would you be willing to re-post in the Caregivers Forum? I see from other posts that you've already found it. You've probably also noticed that it gets a lot more traffic than this one. I think the members over there would get a lot out of reading your post.If it's easier for you, I'd be happy to copy and re-post there, but I wanted to give you the first shot.Will look forward to seeing you over there.Best,Alan

Everyday we just overcome and start on the next problem that will crop up don't we. I am care giver for my mother, age 80, stage 6. Has been quite the process. and the "pooping" is one of the more challenging area's for us. For light note on that issue. I was wiping my mother and had glove on and went from behind and she just leaned back so I am stuck with hand in pot and she is not, will not lean back forward so here we are with me trying to talk her into leaning forward.....took me several minutes but finally.....I am very careful about that now. lol The side of my wrist is still sore. Thank you for sharing with us and come often as it helps I believe. Love to see you in chatroom in evenings. 6-11 PM usually someone there.Take care and God Bless,Sheryl
