My integrity as a wife was put to the test last week. My 26 year old husband was finding blood in his stool, so he went to his doctor, who in turn sent him to a specialist. They set him up to have a colonoscopy last Tuesday, and the prep called for him to drink a half gallon jug of this disgusting tasting drink to make him crap all day. It also called for a 1 1/2qt cleansing enema the night before the test, and a fleet enema the morning of the test. The Go-Lytely drink made him sick, but he got it all down like a champ. What I found later Monday evening, was that he was worried to death about the enemas. He didn't know how to do it right, and was threatening to put the colonoscopy off altogether. I said "oh no, you aren't backing out". I got him by the hand and led him to the bedroom, then helped him get undressed. He started back peddling by saying "I can do the enema by myself". I said "maybe so, but I'm gonna do it for you to make sure it's right". He started pouting like "c'mon Megan, that's embarrassing"...and I'm like "I've seen your naked butt ten thousand times, get over it hon". He was beside himself until I got the tube up his rear, then he was fine. Guess he realized it wasn't so bad, but that was the first time I've ever stuck anything up my husband's butt. It was sort of embarrassing for me too, but then I thought "oh well, it's married life". He took the enema just fine, and the Fleet went even easier Tuesday morning. Luckily the test showed a bleeding ulcer and not something worse. But I strongly recommend to any wives here....If your husband has to have an embarrassing medical test done that's important to his health...HELP HIM WITH IT. If he's got to have an enema, step in and offer to give it to him yourself. It's really not all that much trouble giving a guy an enema. It will encourage men to have important tests performed if their wives proactively participate in the process and lessen their husband's anxiety and embarrassment. My husband is so glad now that I stepped in and helped him with the more troubling parts of his ordeal.

When my husband and I recited our wedding vows in 1984, we both were in our 20s. We included the traditional "sickness and in health" line, but the "sickness" part didn't sink in until a few months later I was critically injured in an accident. After being in the hospital a month, my husband and a visiting nurse were my main caretakers at home through the rest of my recovery.

I share this because we never know when our lives can suddenly take a tumble, and we find ourselves dependent on our spouse, significant other, etc., for our care. Those of us who are committed to our relationships "in sickness and in health" can find ourselves in embarrassing, sometimes gross, sometimes funny situations. I emphasize funny because I try to keep a sense of humor when, for example, my husband thinks he's getting a pill to stop the vomiting and I come home from the pharmacy with suppositories. Or when he's been down sick in bed for three days without a BM and says he doesn't need an enema. (I usually win the argument.)

That's what caring for one another "in sickness..." is about. Thank you, Megan, for your post.
