What is his reaction when you tell your man you are sick? What does he do to show he cares?

 He'll usually ask if I need anything, and then tell me to go lay down like he's my mom lol.

he does everything so I can rest.  it's a two way street, he doesn't take care of me when I'm sick, I'm sure as hell not taking care of him when he is.

He knows if I'm sick regardless of if I tell him.  He worries about me, stays home, and babies me.  I got lucky.

If I say I don't feel well/think I have a fever, he'll kiss my forehead to see if it's hot then tell me to lie down and rest. Then brings me whatever I ask for lol. (he typically does that anyway) Last year he walked 2 miles to the store (our car insurance lapsed and we were a week away from being able to get it started up again) to get me nyquil because I couldn't sleep.

 Yes. He takes care of me. He does my "chores" when he's home and makes me lay in bed and drink lots of fluids. I hardly ever get sick tho. Last time I got bronchitus... he was ready to put an IV in me lol  He doesn't like to see me sick. I got the bed to myself for almost a week. Then when I finally dropped my fever down he came in and washed everything for me. My hubby's usually pretty sweet to me when I'm sick.

He takes care of me like a baby I love it!

He will cook dinner, bring me what I need, tell me I NEED to lie down. Things like that.

 when he isnt busy working, if i am sick and need rest, he will take care of the kids so i can get rest. he will make sure to have the baby in the other room so she at least isnt around me and my germs at night/as we sleep.

depends on how sick i feel. lol. it's important that he goes to work, so the only time i tell him that i don't feel good is when i REALLY don't feel good (and CAN'T get out of bed to take care of the kids). luckily, it's only happened twice, but he made me sleep, took ds out to play (or took care of him, since he was really sick one of the times), and brought me soup when i told him i was hungry and would bring me water when i was thirsty.

 he will ask if I need 7up or crackers && if I say yes he'll go get both he will also buy more then 1 7up. Then he'll tell me to lay down if he's not working he'll watch Eric && lock me in our room (we have a lock so Eric wont go in there during the day). Or if he's working && I'm REALLY sick he'll take Eric to his moms so I can rest.
