I had a really awful night the first night and my DH stayed up laid by the door praying for me. He kept asking me if there was anything he could do, and when I did finally ask for some Gatorade - at 4am - he gladly went out and got it. He never left my side (figuratively).
I feel so lucky to have a man who cares for me so much, even when I'm disgusting!
Yes. Last week I had a problem with my back (sciatic nerve) and I was in so much pain when I had to move I was actually in tears. As long as I sat as still as possible with the moist heating pad I was fine. My husband called in sick to work to stay home and take care of our two kids. He usually won't even call in sick if he's sick. My husband has also cleaned up puke and other nasty substances as a result of me or one of the kids being sick. I have a WONDERFUL husband too. Isn't great.
