My son was recently diagnosed at age 6 with spina bifida occulta, tethered spinal cord, and a lipoma. He had his "detethering, and debulking of the lipoma" on April 29, 2007. WE spent 21 days in the hospital. He has never been "potty trained" bladder wise, however ha did have complete bowel function up until about 7 months ago, when he started pooping on his pull-up. He has also been struggling with major constipation for a few years now. I would like to hear from anyone whose child had the surgery to "untether" the spinal cord, and if their child ever regained any bowel or bladder function. also, if "biofeedback" has worked for anyone. I am so worried that my son will forever be in pull-ups, and he is going into 1st grade next year, I worry what his classmates will say, or treat him. please let me know of any "treatments" or "success" stories. thanks, Carrie

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
