I came home from sea last week with a cold and fever and spent the last few days sleeping, sweating, and coughing. But after sweating through several t-shirts I finally feel much better. I'm still coughing a bit and will be landlocked now for next week. Several of the crew took ill from the last voyage and spent the weekend in the same condition as I.
My man was so sweet with me while I was sick. He changed my tshirts when I sweated through them, held me in his arms and wiped me with a cold cloth, fed me ice cubes, and rubbed my hair to help me rest and fall asleep when I was having trouble resting. I tried to get him to stay away so I wouldn't get him sick but he wouldn't listen and took good care of me. He even stayed at my place and slept on the couch so he could be near me in the night if I needed anything. He is the best.
