I know that there are some of you women out there that think MEN are the biggest babies when it comes to them being sick! I know I do!! When they are sick or hurt, the world must come to a stop and all attention must be put on them. In some cases, a trip to the emergency room is all that’s needed to make them feel better. When the shoe is on the other foot, you are still expected to do your daily chores and go to work, in my case, drive 500 miles a day! It’s hard trying to drive when you aren’t feeling well.
Picture this, my EX-husband called me at 7:30 this morning to tell me he needed to go to the ER because of excruciating back pain. Mind you he has 2 grown children living with him and I live across town. So being the person I am, I get up out my comfortable bed and rush to his house, wait until he gets dressed in clothes I picked out for him and he should have had on already, then guide him out to the car. All the while, those two knuckleheads in the house are snoring louder than the lawn mowers in the neighborhood. The doctors and nurses check him out, shot him up and sent him home with two prescriptions. We stopped by Hardees so that he could get something to eat, then back home. Those two knuckleheads, well, they were still snoring. I am sitting downstairs in the den while he’s sleeping off the high from the shots and the food he gobbled.
I’m not complaining, it’s just that he’s in a lot of pain and I’m tired. Hopefully, he will be good for the next couple of hours so that I can go back to sleep. I know some of you are wondering why I went through all of this for my EX-husband. Well, it’s because we have that kind of relationship now. I can depend on him and he on me and not just because of the kids, they are too grown for that! He’s a good guy and let’s face it, I’m just that kind of person that can’t hold a grudge. But, it’s all good! 🙂
