I went to the dentist this morning, which proved to be a prelude to an embarrassing episode. As I was leaving, I noticed a couple of small pools of liquid on the floor.Oh dear.
A quick inspection revealed that the tap on my leg bag was open. Whether this was due to me not closing it properly, or whether I caught it at some point, I don’t know. Fortunately it didn’t leak on me, just the floor.
This left me embarrassed, and the dentist with the impression that he must have frightened me.
Ah well, I suppose it had to happen some time. If you store urine in a bag attached to your leg you must expect accidents. After my time in Male Urology I know that worse things happen…
The good news is that my teeth passed muster, though the gums need attention. As a result I’ve been trawling the internet to check on ways to enhance my gum health.
It seems it’s all down to eating the right things, and not eating the wrong things. In other words, it’s just like other sorts of health. As you would expect, some foods appear on both lists.
I may start writing lists for the blog. How about a list comprising chips, chocolate, cheese and cake?
One week it could be Four Foods to Avoid, the week after Four Favourite Foods and the week after that Food Alphabet – Letter C. That’s before the sound of barrel scraping and the inevitable What I’m Having for Tea Tonight.
Finally, some good news. I’ve just had a letter from the hospital. They want me to present myself with an overnight bag in two week’s time. I’m not getting too excited after what happened last time, but it does seem that there might be reason for hope.
Fingers crossed. I like the alliterative food posts idea
What a day in the dentist’s office! Poor Quercus! I hope the bag will be gone soon!
Me too! 🙂
I am so pleased! But not as pleased as you must be 😀
It would be difficult to be as pleased as I am! 🙂
It is all very hard to bear so I admire your resolute cheerfulness in dealing with it.
I thought i’d try being cheerful and it seems to have become a habit. Not sure how to break the habit…

Fingers crossed. Stay positive.
Oh, dear! Soon you will be rid of that dratted bag, but not soon enough, I imagine.
It feels better now I have a date for the second visit. Could have been 6-8 weeks but it’s turned out to be 5, which is a bonus. 🙂
Once I’m free of tubing I may try a little dance. That’s how pleased I am. 🙂
By all means dance!
