Neither Richie now I were looking forward to the catheter change, especially Richie was not looking forward to having to do it once again.
I did not realise that he was having such dilemma about it otherwise I would not have asked him so very late on Saturday whether it could be done on Sunday.
Later on I realised that gone one o'clock Sunday morning was not such a good moment for that question.
I did not ask him again until Monday afternoon when I enquired whether I should ask is that our general practitioner or the district nurse to do the catheter change.
Richie said that when I asked him too late on Saturday night it had not been a good moment to him as he was panicking about doing the next one.
We agreed that Wednesday would be a good day to change the catheter, and today that is just want Richie did.
Last night a sleeping tablet allowed me to sleep without any worry about the change of catheter, this worked very well and I had a good nights sleep.
Half an hour before Richie before Richie inserted the new catheter I took a valium tablet which relaxed me for the procedure.
The whole catheter change went quickly and well, before I knew it was done; afterwards Richie and I were both extremely relieved.
