So I know a lot of people on here have great, supportive systems for before, during and after surgery. I guess my question is this... my husband has only been taking care of me 24/7 for a week now and already he deserves a medal of honor. He gets me ice, stocks me up on food and drinks, reading material (even the trashy magazines
and never complains. Last night if I so much as rolled over (a feat at this point mind u), he was out of bed, repositioning pillows, refreshing ice packs, recording my meds on my med list, getting me saltines so I could take my pain meds, etc... He literally has a halo on his head. He is tireless and this is my 34th surgery and he's always been attentive, but this is above and beyond even his normal. I REALLY want to do something for him when this is all over I guess. At this point, I have a cleaning service coming to clean the house a couple of times to help him that way. He does all the cooking and enjoys it. I arranged for someone to stay with me last night and today so he could go play softball and attend a good friends wedding, but I've got to do more! He is an angel. My teenage children were great for a few days and now they're over it and irritated if I so much as look at them. Typical kids I guess. Anyway, anyone have any creative (remember my limitations!) that I can do for my husband to show him my appreciation?
