And the right size and type, too...Um..I think it can be used as a snorkel in case the car submerges in an accident or flood.

It's too late for that once you've started the race.

It was no catheter. It was one of those hospital patient operated pain med delivery tubes.

Except in this case with each push of the dispensing button adrenaline was injected into the guy's p-nis and therefore bloodstream.

That would make anyone run.

Wow, what an inspiring story! As a senior, I know it can be hard to find all the medical products I need. Luckily, I have been able to purchase my catheter supplies over the internet at http://www.180medical.com . For anyone in the same situation as me, I would check out their website.
