It depends what sort of ill he is.
Not babied but who doesn't like to be looked after ? (If I'm home I'll make sure he's okay, get him some food and something to drink)

depends but when he is sick I bring him ginger ale, have him take a hot shower while I put clean sheets on the bed and crack the windows to let the germs out. I put his towel in the dryer so its warm and fluff when he gets out.  Sometimes I make him chicken noddle soup sometimes I open a can.

Surround yourself with people that add to your life not subtract from it.

I am thinking flu or a cold.  I do the same,  give him something to drink and make sure he has something to eat that he likes.

These are good ideas! Thanks.  I need to get the window open now and the bed changed. I like the idea about the warm towel, too.

Resting is good.  I made chicken soup yesterday for my husband.
