Well, quality of life just went way the hell up.  Willa Catheter is no more.  And I love you guys so much that as a token of my respect and affection, I am not posting relevant photos.

My dear boy, we expect nothing less than full disclosure from you. However, if they are not posted behind a (pardon the expression) cut, you may expect a mass defriending with extreme prejudice.

I think the catheter is the closest friend you'll ever have that you *never* want to see again...

Along with the catheder you seem to have lost the ability to use HTML in your livejournal. This and the next post come through with written-out tags.

That's a *very* curious side-effect you're suffering from.

OH yeah. I could not BELIEVE the, er, indignity/pain/suffering of the whole catheter process. Hooray for being untethered!

Yeah, but think of the Caption Contest material. Glad you're no longer on tap, Jay.

You actually took photos?

Pardon me while I boggle. Yes, even at you.

Last year I had one in for 6 weeks. The first attempt to ween me off failed so I had to go back on it for a couple more days. I don't think that folks that have never experienced it can understand it...especially when it snags on something. YOUCH!
