    @PeterPanAndWendy...Not sure if crating would be helpful as he'll probably have
    the accidents in there, where he's also, not supposed to...and feel bad! Maybe
    pee pads in a gated off area for the 4 weeks and much more frequent bathroom
    breaks, he just can't help going and going and going


    Steroids are what I have to take in a very bad flare of my Lupus.

    They are horrible!

    I stay in the bathroom and I'm a BITCH x 1000...you really can't help it!

    My sympathies are with all of you and hoping the time flies by

    @Texas Carol we've never used pee pads before, we didn't want to encourage pottying in the house.

    We take him out every two hours during the day and I get up with him once in the middle of the night. But we left for a couple of hours, so he did what he had too...

    Most of the accidents were happening at night... So now my alarm is set. He tries so hard, most of the accidents were right in front of the back door... So my fault! We have hard woods down stairs, so it's not that big of a deal. Except when you step in the puddle that he leaves behind... Lol

    I tell the kids the some thing, it's not him, it's the meds. So when he potties on the floor, it's our fault, we let him down.

    So I think we'll just keep the bedroom doors shut when we leave, so no more carpet clean ups

    I hate crating him, but I also hate having my bedroom smell of pee...

    Its such a good thing I only need to go to the office two days a week and the kids are home for the summer.

    @PeterPanAndWendy...I've never used pee pads before either, same reason.

    I only meant to suggest (by putting him in crate) that he might start associating
    being in it w/peeing/pooping and avoiding it altogether for other purposes (after
    meds are done).

    I overslept a couple of days ago due to sleep meds and poor Mr Brutie had finally
    had to do # 2 right in front of bathroom door. I stepped in it when I finally got up
    to go, myself...
    Poor baby was abjectedly hanging his head low.

    well maybe just get some pad till he is done with his meds. i have them for sarah as she stays in all the time while we are gone. might be better than stepping in it somewhere at least you can control where he goes. then when hes done with the meds you can get him back on a more normal schedule. as she said a gated off area and some pads. if not then you seem to have things under control for the summer. i hated sarah on her steroids before i joined this forum and got informed about bullies.
