It has been quite a day, typically what we didn't need to happen occurred when Richie took me to the bathroom for a catheter change and a shower.
The catheter came out all right but would not go back in and no matter what Richie did, he had no success.
After an hour and a half I called the doctor to ask for their assistance, once I explained, I was told someone would be there right away.
Hans, Dagma’s colleague came to see if he could help us, he too did not seem to be able to achieve the desired result.
He ended up making a telephone call to the urology department of one of the hospitals for their advice; they gave him a few tips.
Which he tried without success, then Hans went to the chemists to get a couple of catheters with a smaller diameter.
While he was gone Richie kept trying and in the end he got one of the catheters we used to use inserted without a problem.
So then he tried again with the supra pubic catheter, this time Richie inserted it at an angle and it slipped in no problem.
At that very moment the doctor returned with the other catheters, he was very pleased when he heard Richard had been successful.
Right now we both are trying to recover from spending just about four hours all told in the bathroom this afternoon.
Once I finish this I shall find an interesting piece of artwork the post this and spend the rest of the evening relaxing.
