Bragging time

Hi friends.  I want to brag about my husband today.  He is the best caregiver.  He was so sweet this week-end while I continue to struggle with these headaches.  He took our son to the ER early Friday morning.  This happens alot.  Our son doesn't handle life very well and becomes ill trying to deal with it..  So we get these  middle of the night phone calls and my Hubby gets up,  dresses and takes him to the ER.  He got about 4 hours of sleep that night.  The next night, Friday night, our little granddaughters came to spend the night.   While I laid on the couch,  Hubby sat in the kitchen with the girls while they ate their Happy Meals that he left early from work to get for them and to come help me.  The girls carried the whole toy room upstairs into the living room and played like they were in heaven.  The next day he continued to care for their every needs and mine as well.  On Sunday I had a face painting job.  It was an hour away outside at a pool for Grandparents Day.  He not only took me but saw to it that I was drinking fluids, even helped do some balloons when the other clown and I got busy.  I didn't have to be in make-up, thank heavens.  Then he took me out to eat.  I have had so many illnesses and surgeries and I am telling you he is the best.  When my son had his second back fusion it was Hubby that stayed at the hospital with him.  He was the only one that could have handled that.   When we were 19 and 20 we had to take our parents with us to get our marriage license.  We will have been married 40 years next month. 
Okay, update on the headaches.  I went to Urgent Care on Friday.....our new doctor hasn't been added to our insurance company.  He gave me three prescriptions.  I was starting to get a scratchy throat.  That has gone into a cough but nothing significant.  The headaches are still present.  The doctor said the next step was the ER and tests.  Last year I had an MRI and an EEG that were normal.  So, I am hoping that it soon goes away. 
I have lots of things to share that have been going on but will save that for another day.  Thanks for all your sweet comments.   ((((HUGS))))

Do you know about how most all of us are very low in vitamin D? The studies have been done worldwide and the latest is that we should be taking 5000 IU's of D3 a day. The lack of this is being attributed to most all major illnesses to include MS, cancer of all kinds, heart problems...basically everything. If you don't know about this please go online and check it out. Perhaps this can help some of your problems...I sure hope you feel better soon. xxxx

Debby....I have a hubby like yours, and he, too, has been there for me through multiple surgeries and chronic back problems. I do not think I could make it without him. There is nothing like a caring and compassionate husband. Thanks for visiting my little blog, and I am glad you got a kick out of the quilting Diva.

Hugs and get to feeling better soon...

Why your husband sounds just like you Debby! No wonder you too have been married so long. It's so nice to hear that. :)

I'm so sorry to learn of your headaches. It must be unsettling to not know the cause of them. I'll be praying for you!
