A new world for us - WDW with urinary catheterization

Some of you may have noticed I have not been posting much in the last 6 weeks or so. I've been reading, but not time to post much.

The reason is that my youngest DD had elective surgery on February 6 to create a Mitroffanoff. This procedure uses the appendix to make a passage thru the abdomen into the bladder.
She didn't have her surgery at Children's, but they have a nice explanation.

She was in the hospital for a week, with one of us with her 24 hours a day (since she can't talk, we wanted to make sure one of us was there to communicate.
She had a catheter in the Mittofanoff and one in the urethra for 1 m
onth.
Everything was removed yesterday and we are slowly becoming proficient at our new way of life, which right now includes a catheter every 3-4 hours.

So, give me your best hints for touring.
- I know we can go to First Aid, but were else do you cath?
- what do you do for a 'work surface if you use the Companion or regular restrooms?
- how do you manage supplies?

Thanks in advance
