Well, here it is. Sunday. About twice a month my SIL sees fit to come and visit her mother for an average of about an hour and a half. NORMALLY she shows up long after the “poop-time-frame”. Today, however, she miscalculated and appeared before H was off the bedpan. So, by default, (and CAUSE I SAY SO), the bedpan duty and diapering and dressing of H falls to her.
I was sitting in here doing bloggy stuff and I realized that she was running the water in the tub in the guest bath.
Well, this is odd.
Normally, you just go in and dump the, ahem, contents of the bedpan into the potty and run water in it from the sink and dump again and wipe out whatever… stuck, with a bit of toilet paper. You also dump the plastic, Folger’s coffee can full of urine from the catheter bag into the potty, fill with water and repeat. All of this while wearing latex gloves and then following up behind yourself spraying the facet handles and bedpan handles and coffee can handles with spray bleach. Not to mention the interior of the receptacles.
Well, cuorisity got the better of me when I heard her spraying something over and over and the bathtub running.
Crap, the only thing in there that sprays right now is the spray bleach and last time she used it she ruined the bathmats… somehow, both of them.
So I go in there and she has the toilet brush in one hand and the urine bucket in the other and she is “cleaning” the thing out and dumping the contents into the bathtub.
“Millie! You don’t do that in the bathtub!”
“Oh, I didn’t dump the pee in there!” As she sticks the toilet brush under the tap.
I just left. It really doesn’t matter at this point what I say, cause it all has to be cleaned anyway. People really do bathe in that tub.
Does anyone want to come and visit me? 😉
