Today is day 18 that Cass is on Izumio hydrogen water... and on her road to recovery. Things are looking up. So far, there has been no leakages. At home, she is 100% bare at the bottom, all the time that she is awake. She still needs to put on a diaper when she sleeps. She tells me that she has to go bare at the bottom to have a better feel and control.
From soaking a 42cm long pad with wings up to the panty after only just 20 minutes, Cass can now hold her urine for over an hour! I am so proud of achievement. She is setting the target for herself. Everyday, she diligently sets the alarm to an hour. The moment the alarm rings, she goes to the toilet to pee, willingly. Previously when she was on diapers, she would be lazy to pee in the toilet, knowing that she has the diaper to hold her pee. When she's in a foul mood, she would get really bolshie, to the extent that I had to use corporal punishment on her. Just to get her to pee. I was really depressed and so was she. These days, I am less stressed up as Cass holds the fort. She times herself, goes to the toilet to pee herself, washes up and then sets the alarm again - all on her own.
Just a week ago, her 'test' was to hold on to half an hour. This week, she is holding on to over an hour and not a drop of pee leaked out!
I have set a Target Chart for Cass, as follows:
Hurdle 1 - hold on to pee, to an hour. She passed this with flying colors as she can exceed an hour. Kudos to my baby girl!
Hurdle 2 - hold on to pee and start doing strenuous activities like running and jumping without leaking. We are still working on this. When her bladder has just been emptied, she can do all these but when her bladder is full, she will leak a drop or two upon jumping. It's ok. Baby steps...
Hurdle 3 - go out without wearing diaper. This is a challenge. This would also mean that we can only go to places with clean toilets and with toilets easily accessible. I am still planning on how to go about doing this.
Hurdle 4 - this is the real challenge! Going to bed without wearing a diaper. I guess I will save this for the long school holidays, where I do not have to wake up at 4:45am to prepare the girls for school. We will also have to let her sleep on a mattress on the floor with lots of water-proofing. I may have to sleep next to her to wake her up to pee.
For now, I will not try to be too ambitious. After all, it is only 2 weeks that Cass started consuming Izumio hydrogen water for her incontinence. I am confident that over time, her muscles and nerves will get stronger, as with her cognitive ability. I am already very thankful to Izumio and also to God that finally, the muscles and nerves 'woke up from a coma' and start to work again. Now, it is rehab time.
If you know of someone who has been battling with incontinence, urine dribbling, diabetes, eczema, eye disorder, cancer, high blood pressure or any other kind of disorder, you may want to recommend Izumio hydrogen water and Super Lutein to them.
