Yesterday was a fine example of how you never know what will happen next.
I had plans for yesterday was amazed afterwards that I managed to do the session with the phsyio with an overfull bladder that could not be emptied.
Not long after the phsyio left, minutes in fact I got boiling hot instantly and nothing helped, not opening the windows and replacing the duvet with a blanket nothing helped.
This is when Richie discovered that there was nothing much in the catheter bag and nothing was flowing in either.
Once we found this was the cause I phoned the doctor and got the telephone number of the doctor who was standing in for her during her holiday.
Phoned them and organized a visit for an hour later then took the pill to relax the bladder and waited in great discomfort until the good doctor arrived.
Thankfully he was very good and regularly changed catheters so I did not have to suffer too much fumbling around before all was done and I could pee comfortably again.
It was a tremendous relief to be able to use my energy for the pleasanter things instead of trying to maintain my composure whilst being in huge discomfort.
Not my favourite way to start the weekend but happily it was all over in just over an hour after which I took the time to recover before letting Richie haul me out of the bed and into the bathroom for a shower.
Put a whole different complexion on the day luckily we took quick action and all was resolved quickly as possible.
Before the dogs came up on the bed for a cuddle today I had done the arm exercises and Richie did my leg massage and had given me the baclofen and THC and food supplement drink.
As soon as the dogs wanted to get down Richie put them back on t he floor where they scampered around very pleased with themselves, the wee sweethearts.
Well hope everyone is having a good day today.
