Butt Wiper And A Daughter’s Love For Her Father!
I was at a garage sale and I was purchasing some used clothing, some shirts and a hat that was from the lady’s father who was having the garage sale. She told me he had passed away and I said “I’m sorry to hear that” and then after talking for a bit about her father, I always mention every chance I get about the butt wiper. She said “can I see it” so I went and got the pictures of the butt wiper I had on me. She said “Oh my god, if my father was alive I would buy that butt wiper for him, you would not believe the problems I had.
The worst thing my father said he had to do in his lifetime that he was ashamed of was to ask me to help him clean his bottom. That I would do with no problem cus I love my father and he needed help. He really could have used this butt wiper. One time he was trying to wipe himself and he fell in the bathroom I went in there to try and help him get up. I said “Dad I’m going to have to call the paramedics because I don’t think I can get you up by myself. We have tried twice now he looked up at me and said “If you do I’m leaving and going into a nursing home and I’m cutting you out of my will, nobody is going to see me in this mess”. She said “within 3 hours with the strength he gathered up and to be as determined as he was, we got up got him in the tub got him cleaned off”. I helped him until the day he died, he didn’t try to do it himself. If I would have had this butt wiper my dad could have kept his pride and done it himself.
I also asked if she would let me post this story on my website. She said “yes as long as you don’t use my name please” I agreed. Although I’m happy she let me tell her story I wish people would feel more open talking about problems with wiping, it’s something we all do everyday. There shouldn’t be such a big taboo about wiping problems and the need for butt wipers. by: Paul Ramirez
