My husband doesn’t get sick very often, but when he does, I know just the thing. Some comfort food, something warm to drink, and sleep.
I’m a firm believer in babying sick people. Generally, it’s kick them off to bed, wait on them hand and foot, make them sleep until they get well. You’d think I’d have at least one member of the family down sick at any given time, based on that, but fortunately, we’re a fairly healthy bunch.
I used to have a neighbor who couldn’t be in the same room with her kids when they were sick. She told me that sick people made her angry and she couldn’t stand to be around them because she constantly wanted to yell at them to get up and quit being sick. I just can’t get there. People don’t get sick on purpose – well, okay, maybe some really crazy people – but in general kids don’t do that because they like to run around and play too much to be okay with being sick. How could you yell at your kids for being sick?
Anyway, Darc is down. He’s been coughing all day and I know the poor guy’s going to have a heck of a rib ache tomorrow. I’m not even confident he’s going to feel well enough to go in to work tomorrow either. If you’re the praying kind, he could sure use some right about now. Thanks!
And how are you feeling?
