After taking care of my husband following scheduled wrist surgery, I found myself on the other side of care giving.
His surgery was on his right hand, so that left him a bit incapacitated for the first week. Although he never really
complained. Thanked me for everything I would do for him. Just when he started to feel
better, I came down with bronchitis, hard! Poor guy made my tea like medicine with his left hand! Pured water
for me to take my meds, and took the dogs out! So the patient became the nurse, and the nurse, the patient.
I make a much better care giver than patient!
