Finding A Remedy Beyond Oatmeal

I forgot to write about the re-occurrence of Mom's belly pain. If you'll recall, the last time this happened, after a lot of trial and error we found the solution was a couple of doses of Ex-Lax for constipation.

Well it's back. Many months ago, I told the story about how mother dear would be constipated (she is always dehydrated and refuses to drink enough liquid) and that a breakfast of oatmeal did the trick.

Now she doesn't like oatmeal and will not eat it regardless of how much coaxing. So I've resorted to mixing a bit of Miralax (like Metamucil) into her orange juice every morning to keep her stool soft and bowel movements regular.
