I'd never thought I would tell Ian the following:
"Now Ian, Either you have to go back into the bath tub and poop, or I will shove this up your butt." I say as I'm holding a suppository in a rubber gloved hand.
He elected to climb back into the bath tub. It is really weird knowing that the nerve control he has down there makes it very challenging to produce a bowel movement. But one thing we learned long ago is that baths seem to make it easier.
Someday, when this is all taken care of we are going to celebrate with a new bath tub (and a good drain cleaning).
