    replied to Bard 802001 drain bags
    Medline bags do tend to develop leaks in the plastic. I do like the t-tap drains and learned how to open and close them with tenodesis. I have some t-tap drains saved from old bags that I have been sticking on the drain of some of the Bard bags. Three weeks is the most I have used a bedside drain bag...

    We are continuing to work on trunk stability. I have found all sorts of new ways to flop over while trying to set up in bed. Like everyone else dome days are better than others.

    sucralose free, high protein sources

    I am looking for high protein sources that don't have sucralose in them. Sucralose should be called super shit. Many products that used to have aspertame in them now have supershit in them. That includes protein powder, protein bars, protein shakes and many other things.

    Bard 802001 drain bags

    The drain clamp on the Bardia 802001 drain bags has been changed from the more secure plastic thumb clamps to he horrid metal clamps. Those god awful metal drain clamps are one of the two most absolute worst ways to drain a bag I have seen in 40 years. The idiotic things pop open spontaneously. If not...

    One of the ongoing experiences has been working with therapy again to regain strength for transfers and what trunk stability I can manage. I can remember the days when transfers were so much easier. I guess being older now makes a difference as well. Maintaining strength is and ongoing project for many...

    I have been running Kaspersky antivirus for several years now with no problems. I also run malwarebytes. A virus and malware are not the same thing.

    replied to tape keeps coming off
    in Care
    I have been using mepilex dressings on a fairly large open spot for a year now. What was originally a 3x3 open spot is about the size of a nickel now. They are water proof and I have even been able to shower with them on. I was told in the beginning just to dry it off when finished showering and that...

    I have been out for tons of appointments from September to May including the every 3 week trip for chemo. I am pretty lucky at chemo being a vet and receiving treatment at the VA. They do all the blood work when I get there and then I usually have lunch then or after the blood work comes back and we...

    With the decrease in my hand function I finally got tired of dropping everything, including silverware. I went digging into a stash of stuff from years ago in the beginning of my journey and got out the old utensil holders and an assortment of gadgets I had not thought about in years. There was a bag...

    A second saga for a new challenge

    Last September I was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic cancer and after some mishaps and a lot of thought began chemo early in November. Every 3 weeks since the start of chemo I still get the line stuck into my port and what was originally 3 different meds and is now down to one dripped in. One of those...

    replied to Best reacher/grabber?
    Over 40 years I have seen and tried to use a variety of reachers and have had some break. I carry a telestik reacher with me for small light objects and small things a magnet will pick up. For general purposes I use ArcMate reachers. They can be purchased from the company website, Amazon and ebay -...
