I Is For Insane

Ice.
Blech!
I don't even want to discuss ice unless it sits in a glass covered in booze.
No, today I feel like I'm gonna go insane!
Not my image but so how I feel.
Yeah, the flu has descended upon my house and the hubby has reverted to baby form.
I am exhausted.
It's worse than a screaming baby at 4am.
He had me up all night. I'm on top of him to stay warm, hydrated and resting. Most of which is easy since he loves being in bed. It's the hydrating he is giving me an issue with.
Just a little while ago I told him if he doesn't start drinking water at least, I will call his mom down here to make him drink.
Being the mama's boy he is, he drank a Chamomile tea.
Why is it our spouses revert to child form when ill, and when we are sick no one passes a glance? I will definitely be sick all weekend, since he coughs in my face while sleeping, and who will cater to me? Not a bloody soul because women are troopers!

Has the flu invaded your space this season? Any tips for dealing with sucky hubbys?

  3. Knock on wood, but we have not a cold in years much less the flu. In fact, I am not sure that I have ever had the flu. So many people come down with one or both every season. I hope our track record continues to be strong.

    You are so right, men are big babies. I've concluded this is just the way God created them. Thankfully, DH is very good to take care of me when I am under the weather. Last spring when I was so sick, he took excellent care of me. I didn't have to lift a finger. He had an enormous amount on his plate, but never complained. He proved to be a real trooper. :)

  4. I can give you several tips!
    Best tip of all: give him Melatonin ... he'll sleep and so will YOU! First of all confirm if he has a cold or a flu. Colds take time to go through our systems and we really just take care of the symptoms. You are right about hydration ... it's key whether it's hot or cold liquids.

  6. Ha! You got it right with the hubby-reverting-to-baby thing!! It's funny how they do that -- and complain at every tiny thing... things we women wouldn't even blink at! We got flu shots but I had to literally tell the pharmacist that he was going to get a flu shot because he "hadn't decided if he wanted one." Now he tells everyone "oh well I got a flu shot so I'm covered!" Good grief.
    Hope your hubby feels better soon, and that you don't come down with it! ((hugs))

  8. I was in the emergency room with the flu the Sunday before Christmas. Influenza A! Had a temp of 103. My sister said I was delirious. Never been so sick. Don't even remember that day. My son was wonderful, taking care of the dog and parrot. I kept everyone away from my bedroom and after 6 days, was able to get out of bed.
    I don't know what it is about men and illness. I think they revert back to childhood and want some mothering. My ex would expect me to take care of him when I was just as sick. Hoping he has a quick recovery and that you don't catch it Freda. Be well:)

  9. Hi Freda, is it flu or Man flu your DH has?! Sounds like he may need something stronger than a camomile tea lol Maybe both of you need one of those strong ones with ice clinking around at bottom, strictly for medicinal purposes of course!
    Hope all's well soon!

  12. Illness is an icky thing to have to deal with...

    And I know how insane it can make you!

    I am sending some virtual homemade chicken soup and hot tea your way, so when you inevitably catch your hubby's illness you have it on hand... (((winkwink)))

    Hang in there!

    Thanks for linking to the letter "I".

    A+

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
