My big strong manly man has got... A MAN COLD!
Please send good thoughts to help is get through this trying time.
Currently I have him knocked out on Nyquil.

Update: it's the flu. So he'll be home sick for a few days. He's already trying to get me to call out of work tonight. I might do it just to keep him from infecting the kids.

At first, I read 'manly hands', I thought your hands weren't feeling well, I was like "Whaaat?" : )

Hope he feels better soon.

I find it almost funny. The man is a carpenter and will injure himself, and just wrap duct tape around it and keep working.
But a fever and body aches- he's ready to go to the hospital.

Sure. Have him drink plenty of water too. Goodnight, hang in there.

Oh no! Men who get sick are the worst. They turn into toddlers. Keep that NyQuil handy and I will send some healing thoughts your way.

And if that doesn't work, a carton of Rocky road will help you!!!

I can handle it if I get it. But he's banned from going within a 10 foot radius of our kids.

Keep the NyQuil in one hand and a cast iron skillet in the other hand. If the NyQuil quits working, one good hard crack with the skillet will knock him out. Just don't hit him too hard. No need to have to clean up the blood, skull, and brain matter.
