My food log is kind of nuts lately. I lost 5lbs in the past week so I could stand to gain a little weight, so eating full fat cream cheese is okay right now.
Hoping that 48 hours of professional care and catheterization will let Carter recover his ability to empty his bladder. The theory is that it got too full and then his muscles were unable to squeeze it to empty it because they were too stretched out. The idea is that by keeping him empty for a couple days, some muscle tone will recover and he will be able to empty it again. The only reason he was able to pee laying down is because his bladder was so full that it reflexively empties some to avoid overflowing, not because he was actively trying to pee while laying down. Laying down everything is downhill from the bladder whereas standing up it has to go uphill a little first.
