After a dreary start to the day the sun is breaking through which makes everything look better, despite it not looking nice it’s a warm day.
Today was the catheter change day, again it was easier, which is good, I hardly felt anything; Richie is getting very good at replacing the catheter every 6 weeks.
He puts a dab of KY jelly around the opening so he can slide the catheter out without causing me any discomfort, which works well.
He removes the liquid in the bubble; he always empties it twice as there is always abit of the saline solution left in the bubble after the first emptying.
This can cause pain when pulled out, today I hardly noticed anything, at the moment Richie removed my catheter I breathed out.
It seemed to work well, and now it’s been done I am very pleased that I do not have to think about it until the next time in 6 weeks time.
I shall put the next date in my calendar then I do not have to even think about it for one moment, on the day I will get a reminder.
When I have posted this I will do my leg exercises on the Motomed, 40 minutes and after that I want to relax and enjoy the late afternoon sun.
This time I did not worry about it at all, which was brilliant, I am very pleased how well I am doing not spending any time on worrying.
