Thank you for all your kind words. I feel a total fraud now though.
Mum was so scared about this mornings events and asked me what can we do.
I said to her to try and drink more to flush it out, she drunk 1·5 lts of water in one go, and kept walking up and down the hall.
The tube was blocked with 'debris' kept flushing and walking on and off all day, phoned the nurse who said it couldn't be the cancer flaring up so quickly, she thinks mum must have pulled the catheter out a bit in the night and thats what caused the bleeding, and we were doing the right thing. Anyway, eventually the bits came through the tube and by tonight its as clear as crystal!
I have fixed it tonight so she cant pull it in her sleep
The nurse has stuck a post it note on the doctors computer screen for him to ring me.
I felt so sorry for her though, she was so scared and trying to walk was making her absolutely breathless, but she was determined to do it, and she did!
What a day its been, never mind, it all seems ok for another day, I just hope I can cope when the time comes. I am sure I will.
Thank you all so much for your support, life is a bit of a yo yo now. Xx
