DH is doing rather well considering. However...he is under the false impression, that our home has room service. You see, the hospital did have room service...which he rather enjoyed. You know...tell ME to call and order breakfast, lunch, dinner, and various snacks. For some reason he thinks it works the same way here. Except for I have to also cook and prepare what his majesty wants.
I am not used to all of that. I have a very difficult time with my hands. They have lupus blisters and skin tears, from bumping them, which makes it difficult for me to grasp or open anything. But we are managing. I just need to remind occasionally, that I am his wife...not room service.

Aw Marilyn, you're going through a patch... Remember to take care of yourself! If you don't where would everyone else be? Sounds like you'll be ready for a little break next week huh?

Tell him if he expects room service that he better be prepared to tip well or else you might spit in his food. ;)

I have a cast iron skillet you can use.


It ought to knock him out long enough for you to take a nap.

Sending you hugs and prayers for patience! C

Hang in there. It might be tough today and tougher tomorrow, but eventually it will be better. (or at least that is what I keep trying to convince myself!)

Hang in there Marilyn. I think most men think there is room service and maid service at home. I often remind mine he marroied me for a wife not maid service. Sometimes he even remembers that.

You need to put a bill when you deliver his next order and make sure you add a 50% tip!

If he can get up to go to the bathroom he can make it to the kitchen and open the refrigerator door.

He doesn't have to go to the bathroom...it is currently attached to him.

I suggest you do the same thing they do at the hospital... give him a menu of the available food items that he can choose from for tomorrows meals... all microwavable.

LOL.

Oh, I thought he was normal and had two ends . . . but if you aren't feeding him maybe he's not using that one either . . .

I know the feeling of being the home care nurse, cook, and maid! It's my life.
I hope your DH gets better soon! It's wearing on the body day after day!
Hugs to you!

The other end is currently not working either from all the pain meds. Giving prune juice and colace to rectify that. Joy oh joy.
