Next time give your s/o a swift kick in the butt from me...he should have been a little more compassionate and sacrificed a little to help you out while you were sick.

 Oh I know how that goes.  The only time I can get sick is on the weekend, and that is only if I don't have to watch kids(I do daycare) because if I am sick when I have kids, dh won't change them and will stuff them full of junk food or not feed them at all.  And then I am lucky if dh will actually feed the babies real food.  Its really a guy thing to think that we can handle everything on our own even when we are deathly ill, but as soon as they get sick they are allowed to be huge babies.  My dh is a huge baby when anything is wrong with him.
