Why my husband rocks

I need to brag on Fred for a moment. If you read my other blog, you know that both of us came down with food poisoning on Monday night. I caught the brunt of it, since I ate most of the food, and became very, very sick. I actually was in bed for about 33 hours, only leaving to go to the bathroom and... well, you know.

But Fred was sick too, and through the whole thing he; worked from home, took care of me, wrangled Elise, and did an amazing job managing her diabetes. Just check out these numbers:

7:29 am - 104
10:35 am - 65 (okay, so that one was a little low)
12:04 pm - 76*
2:40 pm - 76*
4:46 pm - 137
6:34 pm - 90
8:17 pm - 136

*Those numbers are lower than we like to see, but they came at a time when her BG typically starts going down and he was just a bit late getting Elise her lunch and snack.

My husband is THE superstar of superstars, and I am so thankful to be married to such an amazing guy. I was so sick that there was no way I would have been able to take care of Elise, and it is so nice to know I have such great back-up.

MWAH! Love you, Freddie!


  1. Very impressive! Hopefully you are feeling better!


  2. Wonderful dad!!! Joanne, hope you feel better soon!
    You always amaze me :)

  3. That's awesome! That is pure love and dedication right there.

  4. Dear Lord Woman - I sure hope you guys are feeling better.

    FRED ROCKS! I feel the same about my husband Dave...we are in this as a team. He always has my back.


  5. Hope you're feeling better, nothing worse than a pregnant sick momma! Glad Fred was home and able to help you out!

  6. I love husbands who ROCK like that! Mine took care of both kids while I had the SAME type of sickness 2 weeks ago. NOT fun, but at least there was someone who could take care of you. :)

    (my word verification is salsa, now I want chips and salsa, thanks blogger!)

  7. Oh wow kuddos to fred and hope you are doing better and feeling much better . food poisoning is horrible .

  8. Hello super dad! I'm so glad Fred had your back!

    Glad you are starting to feel better. I've had food poisoning before, I begged my husband to shoot me. It's rough. :(
