    LTF, do you reuse catheters? Every time I have a hard time cathing and blood it has been solved, or at least helped a great deal, by a new catheter. The catheters over the last year are not lasting as long as my previous experience. Or I am not lasting as long.

    You might read the gac3rd post on page 4 of "Hand sanitizers - self cath" and see if the breathing suggestions make a difference. It is noticeable for me.

    Do not ever force it.
    T4 complete, 150 ft fall, 1966. Completely fused hips, partially fused knees and spine, heterotopic ossification. Unsuccessful DREZ surgery about 1990. Successful bladder augmentation using small intestine about 1992. Normal SCI IC UTI problems culminating in a hospital stay in 2001. No antibiotics or doctor visits for UTI since 2001: d-mannose. Your mileage may vary.

    Why a ventilator?

    I assume the sepsis has affected his breathing. My best friend has dealt with sepsis multiple times due to her picc line. She's pulled through every time but its very scary.
