Primo: I had to wipe his butt today.
Primo: He needed to use the bathroom. I thought he was able to go on his own - he went there with the walker and I helped him sit. I thought I was done.
Primo: And then I heard him say, "I'm not going to be able to wipe myself, you know."
Me: Wait! He knew before he went in?
Me: And he asked you to help him get there anyhow?
Primo: Yes! Usually the CNA helps, I guess. I told him this was the first time I had ever had to do that and he said he did it for my mom. I said I expect to do it for a spouse but not for a parent.
Me: What is wrong with him?
Primo: He apparently thought it should not be a big deal and I shouldn't be bothered. He just didn't feel like calling for the nurse. He says they take too long. Later, I overheard him telling the nurse that I should be nominated for CNA of the week. The nurse was shocked and told him that he should have called for help - that he should not have asked me to do that.
