My Husband Rocks, Extended

Yep, I know I posted yesterday about my totally rocking husband, but something happened last night that made me want to add to it.

I was FINE all day, so I have no idea where this came from, but I was hit from the migraine from HELL just around bed time. Not only did my Imitrex not make it go away, but it felt like it was making it WORSE! Any time I moved, the pain seemed to flare out angrily in all directions. It felt like a steam roller was rolling over my head. Unlike my usual migraines, this one was not just localized behind one of my eyes, but the pain went down into my shoulders and back, up the back of my head, and around the front.

I have never had one that kept me awake, but this was the one. After I lay Jude back down from his one night nuring session, the pain was becoming excruciating. I must have had labored breathing because Jeff woke up and asked me if I had a headache. After I explained, he got up and said to switch sides of the bed. Then he came back in and put a heating pad across my shoulders and an ice pack over my eyes. An odd combination, I know, but for some reason, I was finally able to sleep after this.

Oh, Jude rocks, too because he did not do his sometimes stunt of whining several times in the night because he couldn't find his paci. He slept solid until his 1:30 nursing, and then again until his 5:30 nursing. Then he slept solid until 7:30 which is half an hour after he usually wakes up for the day. At this point Jeff took him out and I was able to sleep until 8:30! That in itself is a miracle!

Once again, I felt totally taken care of. My guys rock!

What a compassionate husband! One of my sons has migraines and he feels awfully hugged when I put this microwave warmed rice-filled neck warmer around his head! Hope you're feeling better!

I'm glad that you were able to get some sleep!
