Men can be SO stubborn!!!!!
If he is anything like my hubby, and it sounds like he is, My hubby thinks that if you show pain, then your weak. He doesn't go to the doctor until he is in so much pain that he's in tears by then.
Just keep being the wonderful lady that you are, Marge. He'll be up and around again soon, but, while someone else is taking care of him for now, rest and do something for yourself!! Hugs to you!!

Marge, I agree with everyone's advice - this is a great opportunity to take care of yourself! Rest, put your feet up, read or watch a movie or do something YOU like to do. Everything else can wait!! Big hugs to you and DH.

Marge,

Keep your chin up. I tried to call you yesterday, but lost my cell phone out in the woods and had to hunt for it. Luckily, I just left it on the truckbox of my truck and it fell between the box and the bed.

Take care and I will be thinking of you.

Hugs, SC

They're all correct, Marge, take some good care of yourself while he's being cared for in the hospital. You've had your share of lumps, girl, get some rest!

Yep! He was the youngest of 8 so he wouldn't let them think he was a baby and then part of his training was with the Marine Corps..( 8 out of 21 years) need I say more?

Marge!!!!! It's going to get better from here!!! I hope he starts eating now. I can't believe he broke his hip! Maybe the doctors will get him on the right road to recovery while he's in the hospital. Give him my best!!!

My husband is an only child, who feels he has to prove that he wasn't a spoiled wimp. This is ridiculous -- his mother had TB, and he quite often did everything for him and his dad. I'm tall and large and strong (we're actually about the same size), but when he flopped over this summer, and last summer had gout, I couldn't handle it alone. Don't hesitate to ask friends who are willing to help. I can do a lot myself, but when it comes to lifting and carrying things like air conditioning units, or my husband (around 190 lbs) ... well ... Suffice it to say, if you get sick or seriously hurt your back or knees, you are no good to anyone. so take care of yourself. If you aren't willing to do it for you, do it to keep both of you alive.

I hate it that it always seems that disasters hit you all at the same time. You never have a family member's illness, you have that, and a weather disaster, and a major house mishap ... blablabla. If only the disasters would hit one at a time!
