    Just when you think it's under control!

    Let's see now... We are about 13 months out from injury.

    Don woke up on his pad in bed soaked with pee.... cleaned that up... cathed. He went to work. Came home with 5 (count them) jeep wheels and tires in his van and tried to unload them (they are heavy suckers) and peed while straining to lift them! He cleaned that up... Got into bed... cathed. Then tonite... after cathing again... an invol happens and we are talking BIG invol... the good news... he was naked and on a pad (thank God!)... He did a BP in bed and now is asleep.... YIKES!!! I used to get so crazy about this and now... it's scary... but it got handled and I'm not nutty.... BUT I just had to come here and vent...

    Thanks to all of your for being here!!! Just when we think that our lives are somewhat normal... a day like this happens!! I just know that tomorrow will be better!

    First rule of thumb - there are no normal days!

    We've just learned to roll with the punches and take things one day at a time!

      good on you, sieg

      in this life, attitude is everything, esp. when you are awash in catheters . . . and still cleaning up after leaks.

              technically they can't.. all we can do is share shit and piss stories..

                I just say....What the f**k and try to move on to something else. Is there anything good on TV??

                If I sit and dwell on things I go crazy. Better put it behind as fast as possible and move on.

                  I agree paramoto...

                  I guess all that leaking signaled a major UTI.... ran a sample down this AM and Don started Bactrim until the culture comes back.... he's feeling pretty punky but went to work today, came home and is watching TV and surfing...

                  Thanks guys...
