"In Sickness & In Health"

Hubby and I have been married for 11 years. Most of those years have been "in health." Well...this past week...it was time to put the "in sickness" vow to work. Hubby was SO sick...strep throat IS much worse in adults! His fever was up to 103; he couldn't eat or hardly drink or swallow; and he was throwing up. But, do you know how I knew he was REALLY sick? He was in the bed with the covers over his head with NO FOOTBALL, NO ESPN, NO SPORTS.

Our boy was so worried about his Daddy that he wanted to give his Daddy one of his stuffed animals to help look after him. I told our boy that he couldn't put his toys in there with his Daddy because they could get "cooties" on them. So...here's our boy's solution: wrap mini-Pluto in paper towels, secure with tape, and then place him on a blanket-topped pillow. Next, set Pluto beside Daddy on a chair to "watch after him." Sweet boy!
Needless to say...we are all thankful that Hubby is better now!
