Wasn't quite sure where to post this - Health would have been good, but that was women's health. LOL...so here it is! My DH and I have been married for 1.5 year(s), and he's got the flu for the the first time since we've been married. He's had it before, but since I'm now his wife, I want to care for him, and do whatever I can to make him feel at ease. The last time I had the flu was in 1999/2000, and I was in college, away from my family, and it was horrible! Does anyone have any helpful suggestions? He stayed home from work today, and he doesn't do that unless he really doesn't feel well. We were both up most of the night - him because he was uncomfortable, and me because I couldn't sleep knowing that he felt so badly. He got up around 8am, and let me stay in bed to try to sleep a bit. I slept until about 11am, and feel much more rested. On one hand I felt bad that I wasn't up and awake when he was at 8am, but on the other hand, I know that without the extra few hours of sleep I had, I might not have been at my best to take care of him. I'd appreciate any advise from those who are wiser than I, and have been through this. Thanks so very much!!! <!-- / message --><!-- sig -->
