I wanted to give My Wonderful Man an award for being the most caring, loving, patient person on God's earth.
For the last eight weeks he has waited on me hand and foot. Since he retired he has taken over the cleaning, gardening and ironing, but in the past eight weeks he has done all the shopping, cooking and washing as well.
If it hadn't been for MWM I would have been reduced to a wash down everyday and wearing a nightdress for the last eight weeks. He has helped me onto the bathboard, passed me everything I have needed to wash my hair and have a shower, all the while standing guard in case there was anything else I needed. He has dried my legs and feet when I could bend my leg to reach my feet, and slathered me with body lotion so my skin didn't dry out. I think he liked doing that bit best!! He got my clothes ready for me and even dressed me to a certain extent. He struggled for six weeks to get the pressure stocking on my good leg every day, always making sure that the spare one was clean for when it needed changing.
Now I can get in and out of the bath myself, stand up to have a shower, dry myself and slather myself with body lotion he is redundant in as far as looking after my personal needs, but he is still cooking my meals and doing everything else. I have managed to make him a cup of tea once or twice!
Never once has he complained or pulled a face, even though there must have been times when he felt like strangling me I'm sure. I'm not an easy patient, I don't like being reliant on others, but he has put up with my frustrations with a smile.
I love you darling and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. If anyone deserves a medal it is you, so here it is.The brand new "MOST CARING AWARD" medal, specially commissioned for you, by me, from Josh at The Gabbatha Journey.
