Who says Spina Bifida isn't fun

Jake has been having tons of fun peeing into the bedpan (see post on Bloorview). The bedpan is sort of like a measuring cup for the toilet. We have to mark down how much he pees everytime he sits on the toilet. Well, he's turned it into a game. He wants to break his record of 250ml! I only have to ask him once to go sit on the toilet -- normally I have to nag and nag and nag some more. Sometimes he even asks if its time to go to the bathroom (because of spina bifida he doesnt know when he has to go). Too bad we couldnt have tried this years ago -- I would have been so less stressed -- and saved a fortune since I wouldnt have to have gone through so much red wine to destress (joke)
