Oh how I love this man!

I'm sick. Strep throat. which just hit and I mean WHAM-O...no warning. Sunday afternoon/evening. I'd been great that morning.
Couldn't be worse timing...okay maybe it could...but it's horrid timing for me still!

I don't get sick too often, thankfully, but when I do, it always serves as a reminder to me of the gift I have in my husband.
This is pretty horrid timing for him too. He's swamped with work and needs this to be a very productive week. Yet he's had to cook, clean, nurse, get Rx's, take me to the Dr, buy me some yummy soup, etc etc etc...
And he will absolutely NOT let me worry about any of that and the time it's taken from him.
He tells me he WANTS to do those things. The times I've voiced concern, he has looked me right in the eye and basically told me those thoughts are not allowed.

As much as I HATE being sick this week (HATE it)
I love this man of mine and am so very thankful for him!!

Other things I'm thankful for this week:
Parents who took the kids yesterday so they weren't exposed to all germs at the urgent care, and so hubby could get some work done.

The Dr I saw (my regular Dr had no openings) who took one look in my grotesque throat, and said there was no point in putting me through a strep test...there was no question! She was so kind! Me and my insanely strong gag reflex appreciated that SO much!

Tylenol PM! I'm one to let a fever do it's job and I rarely take anything for fever until it means a lack of sleep...and my 102+ fever meant lack of sleep so I broke down and finally took some....and I'm thankful for it!

The antibiotics should kick in and help you feel better soon. Praying that is the case. God bless you and yours.

I am so sorry you're sick. Thank goodness you have a husband who truly knows the meaning of 'in sickness and in health'. 'Course, I knew he was a good man the first time I laid eyes on him. Keep up the chicken soup, it's home made penicillin ;-) Those Catholic prayers are going up, even now.
