April 10, 2009 Back to Reality - Phase 2

Although the circumstances for our mini-vacation were not the greatest we sure have had a wonderful week together. We have spent a lot of quality time; walking, talking, holding hands, being intimate. Something that we seem to take for granted in our busy hustle bustle lives. Another lesson learned, make time for those most important to you. But as our time of recovery ends, we must get back to reality, so.....

We are headed to Celebration this morning for a cystogram (a leak check of the reconstructed bladder and urethra) and hopeful removal of the catheter. I cannot lie, I am feeling a bit of anxiety this morning based on my historical physical reactions with bladder spasms. Kim also wanted to remind me that with the removal of the catheter comes a whole new set of issues, at this stage mainly continence and then of course erectile function. So we will manage one goal at a time, one day at a time, one prayer at a time.

  1. One prayer at a time from each of us is a whole lot - one day at a time. My family is with you.
