I'm worried *update*

So I've been sick and in bed for 2 weeks. And my husband is stressing a lot.
He's trying to work from 4 am to 4 pm, keep the house clean, keep our 2 year old happy and take care of me. He "hired" his oldest to help and she's been nothing bit more stress for him. I'm worried about him he's stressed about money because I haven't been able to work being so sick. And idk what I can do to help him.

He's going fishing Saturday with a friend luckily but do you ladies know how to destress overworked husband's?

*update*
He seems to be enjoying the Fishing time. He's text me how he caught a huge cat fish and sending pics of the few bass fish he's caught. Mind we have gone fishing all year and haven't caught a thing till today so hell be all excited and cockey and happy lol thank you ladies for the suggestions of rest time for him
I am feeling better still sickly but well enough to handle DD and maybe go to church tomorrow

What's wrong with you that you have been sick for 2 weeks?!?! O.o

An yes, the fishing trip is a good time off for him so long as you have someone who can help you while he is gone.

Well it was a viral infection but the Dr suspected meningitis so I got a spinal tap and I guess they sent me home to early from the tao that i got infected and dehydrated and wasn't eating so I got more sick, its been a real pain in the butt I can't be in an upright position without getting sick.
I hope he can relax. Idk if anyone can come help me but I'm feeling a little better. It'll only be a few hours

IF you had an infection in your spine from a spinal tap, they would have kept you in the hospital under observation and you would have had IV antibiotics to kill of the infection.  I am betting you had the combo of the side effects of having the tap done along with the symptoms of the virus.  :( That sucks. 

But after a spinal tap you need to rest and take it easy anyway. My son had a bunch of them while going through chemo. 

Well.. I hope you feel better!! Make sure you take in plenty of water, Vit C, and don't overdo it!
