Today started well, woke almost gently think that is because I am getting used to feeling everything tighten up and become painful as soon as I wake up.
Richie did my leg exercises after I had done my arm exercises, then he set me up with the table and my laptop and he had a quick shower.
I settled down to reading my mail, listening to the radio and thinking about various things I needed to organise.
Did not get as far as writing today’s post, as suddenly I felt that the catheter had moved slightly, so I called Richie.
He popped it back in and hoisted me out of bed and took me through to the shower in the shower chair.
Had an excellent shower and Richie dressed me and sprayed me with Jean Paul Gaultier perfume and put earrings in and a couple of pretty bracelets on my wrist and a sparkly brooch and I was ready.
My session with Mathilde went well, although I noticed that my right arm was much more difficult to lift up to my head.
Richie and I had some lunch after my physiotherapy session and we were all set to go out and enjoy the sunshine when I felt the catheter start to move again.
Decided right away that this was happening to often now and for no good reason, had to accept that this is the moment when I needed to get the supra pubic catheter put in.
Before we went to the bathroom I called our doctor and asked her assistant to get Dagma to call me back after her last appointment.
Dagma called just after Richie had popped the catheter back in and had got me back into the wheelchair.
Asked Dagma to organise an out patients appointment for me as quickly as possible to get the new catheter which I now urgently need.
Cried a lot also while talking to our doctor as I am pretty scared about any surgical intervention.
But it is now obvious that I need to get the supra pubic catheter done so I do not need to worry about my catheter popping out.
Feel worried about the procedure and at the same time relieved that it will happen soon, would rather enjoy life without having to worry about things such as catheters.
