sunnyserpent, aber schau mal hier, aus einem Journal of Nursing 1920 (die Zeitperiode würde für meinen Kontext auch passen):
CAS’E I.-A. P-, aet. 8, healthy. He
ahlways I ‘ wet his bed,” and is a nuisance now
he goes, to school as he constantly has to ask to
” leave the room.” Seems bright and intelligent.
Not circumcised, but no phimosis.
Urine : No hyperacidity or bacilluria. No
other apparent cause. Has had prolonged
course of meldicinal treatment, whicht was
ineffective. Was treated by above method,
and showed marked impruvernent after three
applications and quite cured .after eight. Now,
four months after, he has been abbe to hold his
water ,for a normal period, and hasl no trouble
Or consider this:
At one end, an old lag is sheltering in sand dunes. He is still built like a bull at 80, and though his eyes are failing he says he can't hold his water, he can certainly hold his drink. Despite the empty whisky bottle he offers to share, he is stone-cold sober. "Don't think I'm finished yet!" he roars in a lilting, almost Irish accent. "Here you're still a youngster at 90!" He tugs his shock of white hair. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/729992/Scot...
Seems to work, no?
