They Didn't Ask Me

Level Playing Field

I've been in hospitals since mid November.

Every time I've had to pee, it's been lying flat on the bed with a hand urinal.

Every time I've had to poop, it's been on a bedpan.

Typically I pee some 300-500 mL, though my record was 900 mL.

Never overflowed or had a spill.

Until tonight.

The new bed is not level. Lie it "flat" and it feels like my head is pointing downhill. Turns out I'm right once again.

500 mL spilled. Or rather 500 mL was left in the hand urinal.

So what, you say? That's what those soaker pads are for, right?

Except you have to roll twice to simultaneously get the old out and the new in.

On a bed that is too narrow.
