Bathroom issues -- apologies for subject matter
We have ongoing issues with SS9's bathroom habits. Nothing extremely serious or disturbing, but gross and annoying as heck.
For a while, he was having off-and-on accidents. It seemed to be caused by him not wanting to get up and stop his game or video or whatever to actually go in the bathroom. So, he'd have an accident and then just sit there and ignore it. DH (who has a very sensitive nose) would smell it and SS would always deny, then DH would make him go shower and change. Once, we had to deep-clean the couch because the odor had soaked in after one incident. He tried talking to him about it, asking him at regular intervals if he needed to go, etc. Still happened. That seems to have lessened, thank goodness, as it's been a few months since the last time it happened.
Lately, apparently SS's aim is off. DH has found evidence that SS has been going #1 with the seat down (lid up) or that he's missing entirely. SS, again, denies it's him (no one else it could be). Last night, DH found it and made SS clean it up and, once again, gave him the basic hygiene lesson/lecture.
We've also learned that sometimes SS goes #2 in the shower. Again: Evidence. Gag. DH has talked to him, asked him questions: Can he not feel it coming out? Does he just not want the hassle of getting out to handle it? Why is he not going before he gets in? Nothing.
SS seems completely unbothered by it all. BM says she hasn't noticed any problems or seen anything like it when he's with her. She has her faults, but I do believe she's being honest.
We're aware there could be medical reasons, so DH is going to ask the doctor at SS's upcoming check-up.
In the meantime, yuck!
