My mother and aunt were great believers that enemas could get you through an illness quicker and so do I. The first day the symptoms appeared it was a high soapy followed by a saline rinse then a quart of warm saline daily till the symptoms passed than for one day more.
When the flue hit the family there could be as many as 6 enema bags and colon tubes hanging in the bathroom drying. Yes my mom and dads would be there too. All the bags and tubes were marked with our initials in India ink so you would always know who had been on the receiving end. When we all had the bug two of we girls would get our enemas in the morning before school and the other two after getting home from school. Mom would take hers during the day and if she didn’t had dad give it to her late in the evening and dad would get his late in the evening from her. Although one time I came home from school early and saw mom giving him one in their bedroom.
Over the years I have on occasion been as very sick and although at those times and conditions I didn't really want an enema although I knew that I needed it and Marvin, bless him, and would help without expecting any "reward" for it. The first would be a large high soapy, as much as I could stand, given in the position most comfortable for me followed a little later by a high saline. After that it would be a daily and sometimes twice a day quart of saline given with a fully inserted 18-inch colon tube while laying on my back with my legs pulled back and my hips elevated on pillows. He would slip the tube in so smoothly and gently as he gave the enema oh so slowly and coach my breathing so I wouldn't experience severe cramping as he stroked the back and inside of my legs, and I'd feel oh so loved and cared for. He never expected sex during those times and would only give TLC. When I felt better usually evidenced by me becoming aroused enough from the enema to become "wet," then I was usually ready for some added play via masturbation or oral loving to orgasm as I continued to hold the enema letting it work. My desire for intercourse would usually be a day or so later.
