Lucky One!

Ok, I've just gotta ... well, gloat, I guess!

Okay, so things haven't been great health-wise. I got a bite or cut or something on the back of my leg, and it swelled up and blistered like nothing I've ever seen before. This was... two and a half weeks ago, and today's the first day I've felt comfortable not wearing a bandage. It's getting better, but it was pretty nasty.

Well, over the weekend, the Hunk wasn't feeling great - he just couldn't stop coughing. So he took Monday off and tried to find a doctor. Nobody could see him before Thursday, but he was feeling better, so he went back to work yesterday. Mistake. He was hacking up his lungs on the way home, and went to the "urgent care center," which as far as I can figure, is like a pre-ER.

Anyway, to make a long story short (too late), he's got pneumonia. Not terribly - they didn't admit him or anything - but he's on an anti-inflammatory, an antibiotic, and a cough suppressant. Poor baby.

Well as it turns out, TWO of the medications have sleeplessness as side effects, so he was up almost all night. Poor baby.

So at 5:30 AM, he made pancakes for me.


I lectured him a little about being careful, but he said he was going slow and taking it easy, but he'd read all the way through Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and his eyes just didn't want to read anymore, so he wanted something else to do.

So he made pancakes for me.

I have the most wonderful husband in the world.

I hope he gets to feeling better because nothing is worse than a man who is sick! I hope your bite is better too! Stay healthy!

Yeah, I have never had a sick man cook for ME! What a doll! You two get better!

He is STILL SICK. Today he cooked steak for me. Glee! (I made the mashed potatoes and the green beans.)

He's planning to go back to work tomorrow. But I'm thinking that if he's not sounding better tonight, Imonna fuss at him if he does!
