What makes you the happiest these days?

(Also, I hope for the family's sake your Grandpa has an Advanced Directive/Living Will so that his end-of-life wishes are known and documented. I used to work on a Cardiac unit, and there's nothing sadder than a family fighting over whether or not Grandpa wanted all these life-prolonging interventions, especially when so many of them are painful/unpleasant.)

I'm an L&D/Postpartum nurse, and you can tell her that the foreskin actually has a protective effect against poop "getting in there" because it is actually attached to the glans. It really only needs external care/wiping down.

It's when people start messing with it by retracting the foreskin prematurely that babies get microtears that are susceptible to infection.
