He's home!

I'm so pleased to say that my husband is now home from hospital 😊. He's still quite poorly but he's starting to be grumpy sometimes which is definitely a good sign lol. He's very determined and wants to do more than I feel he should be doing - it's so difficult because I don't want to keep reminding him of how ill he is but neither do I want him to do too much. I'm trying not to fuss but it doesn't come easy. Anyway, again thank,you all for your support - it was so good to know you were there for me - and for my husband 😍. Jan xx

  • That constant dilemma - needing to do more to improve, but not so much that it sets you back. Good luck, Jan and hoping your husband continues to get better.

  • Hello Jan

    How lovely to have him home....and grumpy is a good sign he is on the mend !!

    Can't wait to get my husband home from hospital....grumpy or not, don't we miss them.

    I like you have had masses of support from the Guys and Gals on this site....Three Cheers for them all....Their kindness has been brilliant.

    You must remember to take care of yourself, it's very easy to overdo it when you are nursing a loved one...

    Sending love and best wishes to you both.

  • Glad your hubby is home. I had a spell in hospital in March an when I came out my wife mollycoddled me. Most of the time I listen., this Wednesday I didn't and overdid it at pulmonary rehab session. Hope your hubby listens as you have his best interests at heart.

  • That's good news Janann. Maybe agree to let him do things but to ask you if he needs help? I agree fussing might make him annoyed but it's very hard not to isn't it? x

  • So happy he is home Jan. 'grumpy' probably show's he wants to do more and is fed up with his patient status. But when he tries he finds he needs to gain more strength , hence cycle of grumpiness. On the rare occasions my husband is ill, I Enjoy the opportunity to mother him but he all too soon.gets his macho man back. Take care x

  • Good news Jan. So glad you have your dh home. Don't forget to look after you too.

    love cx

  • Hi, Jan, so glad to hear you have your Hubby home, may he continue to improve. I know hoe difficult it is to try not too fuss too much, but he'll know it's for his own good. Make sure you take care of yourself too.

    Take care,
