It is always nice to meet another boomer. Some more details about my experiences -- My mother did the same thing with the open top B.F. Goodrich red rubber bag. An Ivory soap bar was put in the bag. Then the warm water filled the bag and mixed the soap and made the water filmy. I got about a quart or so, and it always took two trips to the toilet to expel all of it. It was done first thing each day. That made temperature taking and suppository administration easier. It did feel good to be cleaned out.
I had a gag reflex that made it hard to take a pill. That is why I got aspirin in suppository form. They were big pellets with the brand name Supprettes. Some other meds looked more like gel capsules and were given rectally. The Tigan ones were brown and long, thin suppositories. I wore red flannel pajamas with a drop seat that closed with eight buttons. My mother used that trap door every time it was a temperature taking or suppository occasion. I was on my tummy for the rectal thermometer and on my left side with my knees pulled up for each suppository.
The cough syrup was cherry flavored and it got me snockered as well as stopping the cough. Great stuff.
You did not mention getting nose drops but I did. I had to lie on my back on the bed with my head hanging down over the edge. I loved the results, but dreaded the experience of having a half dozen drops put in each nostril. Did you ever get nose drops, and how was it done?
Fortunately, I never got the Vicks Vapo Rub or Fletchers Castoria that other kids had. My mother knew they were both pretty worthless.
Looking back on it all, the tender, loving care was great, I craved the attention, and now I have a fetish for all of it.
