Yeah, my DH is the biggest baby... he called in sick because he was "stuffy" and whined about it for 2 straight days... this was after me and our 4 yr old DD had TERRIBLE colds (coughing, sneezing, sore throats, ect)... lol... guys are silly...

I know, I had a double ear infection and a sinus infection a couple of weeks ago and was violently ill due to how severe the infection was. I did not whine once, LOL.  He came in the door whining......I feel misearable.  LOL.  I know he feels bad, I don't doubt it. It takes a lot for him to leave work but still the whining has got to go. LOL

I guess I've got it made! My husband rarely gets sick. When he does he just sleeps. :)

Mine doesn't get sick often thank goodness. Right now he is sleeping, thank goodness.  Hopefully he will sleep off the whine and sickness and not pass it to the rest of us. We have a habit if one of us adults is sick to sleep in the living room and shut the door and not get each other sick.  It helps.  I need to lysol the door knobs and such just in case though. Don't need any of the rest of us sick.

Mine hardly gets sick also.. but when he does I dread it. LOL. Definitely the biggest baby ever ;) It's almost as if it's the end of the world when he doesn't feel good. It does seem to always hit him hard, though. It's just the constant groaning that bothers me lol. Nevertheless, we keep him in the bedroom with the door closed and check on him every couple of hours.. as well as lysoling in between. :-)

Well my tv is in our bedroom and he prefers the couch when congested. He says it keeps him up higher.  So I don't argue. We can shut the door to the living room and he is "shut off" from the rest of us..LOL that sounds worse than it is.

Eh.. he's not too big of a baby.  He toughs it out a lot.  I can't really say he complains too much.  I'm the same way.  Although we were both VERY sick a couple of days ago and we both took turns sleeping and being violently ill (luckily different days so we took turns with the kids) but we both just slept and didn't really complain.

I am the biggest baby, but in my defense, when I get sick, I usually end up hospitalized. 

When he gets sick, he whines but nothing too obnoxious.

See that's the thing he can be really sick and be tough but other times not so much. When he had thyroid cancer and surgery and treatment he was one tough cookie.  But a bad cold or flu he whines.  LOL. I can't complain too much but whining grates my nerves.  Granted I have a headache today, so I am sure that factors in. LOL
