My husband is a dh

One of the things I was most worried about was having the help I needed after the surgery. I am happy to announce that after 16 years of marriage I do not know my husband. He switched from being the needy, lazy person into a dear husband. He has catered to me from the time I went into the hospital and says he will continue until I recover. He has done everything. I don't have to lift a finger. I am really suprised and happy at his turn around.

Good for you, I hope he is always there for you. My DH, still after all this time, watches everytime I pick up something and comes running to help.. He gets worried when my belly still swells and asks me howcome I didn't tell him to do it.. Been married almost 12 years, what a luck lady we both are.. happy healing.

Samila, I am glad to see that your dh is being supportive and helpful. My dh was and is still the same way, and we have been married almost 26 years. This surgery is hard enough without having relationship issues. I hope you continue to have a great recovery, best wishes and 's, Carol

I too want to say my dh is a peach he did everything for me during my recovery from feeding me,bathing me to assisting me on the toilet when things were very rough. He took 6 weeks off from his work just to be with me. Now that im a little stronger he allows me to do light things like washing dishes and cooking... But things like laundry, sweeping yard ,cleaning etc.. he is the man. I thank God for him.. this week we will be celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary.

My husband is a dh

So today I was standing at the top the stairs listening to my DH, my MIL and my 16yr old DD arguing about who got to do the laundry. Of course my DD won out and the laundry didn't quite get finished (her boyfriend picked her up to go fishing), but she did take me for a walk. My DH vacuumed and loaded and ran the dishwasher. My MIL is getting agitated that they won't let her do anything. (We're all a little afraid of how she might throw everything together in the wash--she never was much of a housekeeper lol).

I'm thinking that one of the best things to come out of this surgery is the realization that I have such a great family.

It's good to hear that there are hubbies out there who are truly loving, caring, and compassionate. So far, I think I have you all beat - as I have been married 31 years and my DH has been absolutely wonderful through this entire ordeal. I am totally pampered to the point where he said..."Don't bother going back to work, stay home"
Wow...that's sooooooooo nice, but I enjoy my occupation (personal fitness trainer) - but I am only going back part time and can't workout for awhile yet.
I just finished reading a thread where someone's husband was not as caring.......I just we are blessed.

I figured my husband would be good to me for maybe 2 weeks.......well, its been almost 7 weeks and he still is angel husband. Once in a while he gets a little cranky, but all in all I feel blessed. Now that I am feeling better we share doing stuff like i'l cook and he will clean up. This is coming from a man who did not know how to turn the dishwasher on,do laundry or make a bed. Hope this lasts forever!!

My DH of 28 years has been fantastic. Here it is, 9 months later, and he is still just as wonderful as right after post op...Of course now I'm "back to normal for the most part, but sometimes the stamina is just not there, and he jumps right in. Last night I just gave out, so the kitchen didn't get cleaned up, and this a.m. he got up and (with my help too) got the sink emptied and the dishwasher running. What a dear...he's a keeper!
