TAnn Update 4/25

Thank you Don for keeping everyone updated. I went last Thursday to get my abdomen drained for the 5th time (I've had to go once a week since coming home from the hospital). Decided to have the catheter put in since the fluid returns so quickly. They were getting about 1.5 liters of fluid out every draining, I just can't go to the hospital every week and have this done, so I agreed on the cateter.

My husband drained me for the first time at home last night. It went ok, I don't have to drain everyday, just when I start to feel uncomfortable. We drained off about 1 liter after only 4 days.

I never thought that I would ever agree to have another catheter, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

I go to the doc next week to set up a game plan. Not giving up yet, but the fight is getting much tougher.
