I wish there was something for women that easy! Mother now scoots forward on the toilet and everything goes down the front- on the clothes the floor etc. (yes raised seat and arms on it.) I sit her on it far back but she still scoots- I've thought about velcro but figured it would be hard unsticking her :-o

Well this certainly started the day out with a smile or two! :lol:

Gerry- so correct...either you hold the urinal or clean up after the LO uses the urinal upside down. Have not painted the bottom yet but plan to do so.

Sharon- when I was in the medical supply store a week or so ago (bought another urinal to keep in a bag in the trunk of the care for when we are out) I saw a urinal like this for women. It was shaped a little differently. You might want to give it a try. VELCRO.. :lol: now that would really work well! But yes, it would be hard unsticking the LOs. :lol: That would make quite the news story: LO stuck with velcro to the potty.

MM- yes, thank goodness for the camaraderie...who else can we discuss these pee/poo issues with? You are so right, we have to be very careful what is on the floor so the LOs do not fall.

Irene- "on to something" ...a real pun there. :lol:

Wishing a "dry" day to all.

Maybe it is time to try the urinal again. I have one - better than holding on to the penis anyway. It is a chore to help him down onto the toilet and pull him up again. Hope it works...change is very hard for him.

Yes, it certainly eliminates the chore of getting them up and down. I would much rather be the holder of the urinal then the scrubber of the floors :) Oh how I am tired of scrubbing floors!
Hope it works for you.

Hey, I used the urinal last night and it was so much easier and I didn't get so woke up and could get back to sleep easier. He wakes up at least 2 times some times 4 or 5 to use the bathroom. I've used the urinal all day too and I think it's safer. Jeanie

Glad it worked for you. Works most of the time for us...unless he turns it upside down or something :lol:

mm,

Sorry to hear the wee issues are taking a different turn. I have had a poo issue a few times and believe me, I don't know how others deal with it...but it was the most unpleasant thing I have ever encountered. I think that would be the time I would move the LO to a home where they could better care for him.

Our dog Molly (a miniature Schnauzer) is such a joy for us. Pets can be trying sometimes but the blessings out weigh the difficulties. When Wayne falls Molly just sits beside him till i can get help to get him up.

My husband gets me up in the night and still has a "full" Depends when he gets up in the morning. He also needs to go during the day and often has gone in the diaper as well. Maybe he is just on the edge of not being aware of the urge to urinate. ?????

jweeks- that is possible. I just brought that up to a Dr. this past week: how can he go so much, especially at night and not know when he is done. He replied: the muscles become weakened and he may not feel himself going.
mm- I too hope the end comes before the poo issues increase. I cannot and do not want to describe the immense job it was to clean up and far beyond my realm. I could not do that on a daily basis...while I know others have. I admire them, they are stronger than I am.

The puppy is nothing but sheer joy! What a darling little munchkin. :)

How do others out there handle the bathroom situation when you are out and about? Do you take him into the "ladies"? That's what I have been doing. Today we went out to lunch after church and he had to "go" at the restaurant. I took him into the "ladies" and was trying to get him onto the toilet when he started peeing. Oh, It was terrible....he peed on my foot (in sandles) and on his nice Sunday pants. I finally got him to sit down on the toilet but it was a panticy situation. I left his shirt out so it would cover up most of the pee stain - No one knows what we go through! J

Yep...we have had the same situation...but excluded my foot, thank goodness. Went to see the Lion King...before the play started he had to go...I didn't have the urinal with me (forgot it) so he went in the mens room...didn't get the pants down in time and went all over himself. Well...at the price of those tickets...I took my jacket and covered the front of him, we went in, enjoyed the play...a bit uncomfortable. After it was over he had to go again..did the same thing. Walked right behind me so nobody would see. I carry a large trash bag in the trunk to put over the seat...and a change of clothes in a travel bag too. We all do the best we can but accidents do happen. He had a poo mess one time too...when we were in a casino. That was the worst!

Just when you think it cannot get any worse, it does.

A few weeks back when I posted on my spouse's hypersexuality, I couldn't explain that he gets amorous a few hours after a bathroom debacle where there is crap all over him, all over the potty, all over the floor with a trail from the dressing area. And his nose is running.

He expresses his hurt and feelings of rejection because I never have any interest in having sex with him! There is nothing to say in reply except that I have lost my sex drive and it has nothing to do with him and I'm sorry he feels rejected and that I do love him with all my heart.

On top of his physical condition, my physical condition is in a downward spiral: ruptured lumbar discs, torn rotator cuff, arthritic fingers that need joint replacements. And no way I can get any help for the long haul that rehab would require. My LOL is oblivious to my physical debility or that he isn't the virile attractive man he used to be, nor does he know that I'm losing my mind over our disastrous financial situation (what retirement funds we had were mostly in bank stocks and a few real estate ventures and we all know how the market wiped those out).

Well, now, I'll think I'll go have some cheese with that whine.

Just for Today,
Joy

I hate walking into my bathroom anymore, never know if the grout will be white or yellow, lately is always yellow. Tonight I checked to see if he settled for the night, go into the bathroom see pee on the floor, his depends thrown on the floor and him in bed naked. :x Of course I roust him up, trying to remain calm and get him to put on new depends. God, I hate my life anymore. Its so hard not having a sensible conversation with him, just asking him the same questions, are you hungrey, thirsty, do you want to watch TV? I hate what it is turning me into. I am thankful for today, while he was at Day Care, a dear friend of mine came over to spend the day with me. She felt I needed some girl time. :lol: We had lunch, went for a walk and just talked, it was the nicest 6 hours I had in a long time. It felt so good to have a conversation with someone and share your thoughts and the nice part about it was that everytime she used the bathroom I didn't have to worry about pee on the floor, I thought I died and went to heaven. Like I said I hate what I'm turning into. :cry:
