Do I smell poop?

This is a question that(if your a parent)you will ask multiple times a day.  I never knew that my husband and I could talk about poop for over an hour (consistency, color, etc..).  It's just comes with the territory of having a kid.  If you've read my blog in the past, you may have seen the one about Miss E's bowel issues.  I've prayed so hard about this because it has caused her so much pain and discomfort.  I had talked to the specialist about what comes next and what I was told was not good.  It involved some very super invasive measures and anesthesia that Brandon and I were just not comfortable with.  I did not want to see my baby have to go through that.  We decided that we were going to pray on it and give it a little longer before we called back to make the dreaded appointment.

Well God was definitely listening to our prayers and He has answered them in a big way!  The first time was a couple weeks ago.  We were sitting in the living room playing and I caught a whiff of something.  I chalked it up to gas from one of the dogs or Miss E.  I kept smelling it and a few minutes later I checked her diaper and sure enough, there was poop!  She had pooped for the first time in her life without me knowing because there was no strain.  I was so happy that I called Brandon while I was changing her.  It's been pretty consistent the past 2 weeks, we've had maybe 1 or 2 bad episodes. 

This is something most parents take for granted, the fact that their kids poop without them knowing and they may catch a smell and happen to look.  That's never been the case in our household, this has been 14 months in the waiting.  I'm hoping that I'm not jinxing it, I wanted to tell the whole world the first time it happened, but we held our tongues to make sure.  I'm confident that God is watching out for Miss E and that He won't let her have to go through with what would of had to be done.  Here's to hoping that we never have to make that dreaded appointment!!
