    And for all that's holy, please don't try and cath anyone at home!!! Practice on a bottle.

    Honestly, we were told about someone in the intake before mine, that managed to get the foley in but chicken out when it came time to remove it. Emerg. wasn't impressed when they showed up.

    The males in my family all crossed their legs when I pulled mine out of the bag, even the dog whimpered. They are so easy to torture.

    That's too funny!! Guys are sensitive when it comes to that part of their body!! Maybe the kits should have certain warnings, like 'do not try this at home'! I can't imagine someone volunteering to have a cath inserted...!?

    Anyway...thanks for the laugh!
