      This time next week, I’ll have a suprapubic catheter, and be able to hydrate as much as I dang well please.

      I’m a little nervous. I haven’t had a procedure since my G-tube placement, which was during my freshman year of high school. But it’s an easy surgery, and I’m not going completely under, so I’m trying not to freak out. Thankfully, I don’t have to wait very long. A little over a week!

      At this point, I’m more concerned about the coronavirus and the possibility of picking something up. It’s an outpatient procedure, so I won’t be staying the night, and so far there are no confirmed cases in Minnesota. I just need to survive one more week, and then I can go into full hibernation mode.

      Anything I need to know going into the procedure? Your experiences have been so helpful and have really soothed my anxieties, so I appreciate it!

      Yay!!!!! You will need to purchase your own supplies and try to determine what kind of setup you’ll use on your chair (if you’re using a bag). I’ll send you my supply list!

      Wow Brianna! I can’t believe how quickly that process went! I don’t have an SPC to give advice, but it looks like Rachel has you covered. Good luck with everything and please keep us posted. I actually just got home from having a procedure done without anesthesia, and I know it was the safest option but— ugh. It freaks me out at times, too.
