Losing bowel control...please give me Suggestions?
by Paddling Slowly
(Up that Creek)
My very proud, bitter and angry 92 year old father is basically blind, cannot hear and now is losing control of his bowels.
He is outrageously stubborn, will not wear his glasses or even discuss a hearing aid, and now I notice that he is hiding multiple pairs of underwear in the cushions of the couch! (Long story....when I go to his house to do laundry, it is like a demented and gross Easter Egg Hunt...yikes!)
I did go into the room and removed them, washed them and put them in his drawer, hoping it would open up conversation...but no dice.
If I suggest the adult diaper Depends, I know he will go bat-poo crazy...no pun intended.
He has now found a new hiding place, which I have not been able to find. I am about to ask him where his underwear are...please pray for me as I am going to unleash a SNIT from him like no other. I am sure he is going commando at the present time.
Should I silently throw away all underwear and replace with disposable ones? Thoughts? Will I be the first daughter murdered in cold blood for having the audacity to suggest an easy alternative?
