My Wife, the Nurse

I hate being sick...I feel so useless and ugly, and I cannot do the things I normally enjoy and cherish...especially on the weekend. This weekend I have been plagued by the flu. Aches, fever, fluid in lungs, etc. But God gave me a beautiful wife who possesses double the commiseration I lack, and has waited on me, more or less, hand and foot, making this experience far less uncomfortable than it could have been.

While I think it is more natural for a woman to be endowed with the gift of empathy, I believe Sandra is far more endowed than the rest. Thank you San!

Being sick sucks less when you have a sidekick to help fight the fight. Hope you feel better soon.

Sickness sucks.

So......do you return the favor when she's sick? Women are naturally more empathetic than men, but that's no excuse for us.
