OT - Big Man Baby DH
So a week ago DH had surgery to have a bone spur removed, not a big deal and he has a little knee scooter to get around on for the next six weeks.
Well my DH is a HUGE man baby and if you aren't paying attention that he is suffering then he will make sure you see his is suffering.
It started last Saturday with him telling me he almost fell in the shower...I asked him how? He said it's so hard for him to maneuver into the shower seat he insisted he needed. I told him "well you have the shower seat set up really high and rather than sit on the side of the tub and then scoot across into the shower seat you have to stand up and try to step over the side of the tub to reach the seat, that's on you, you set it up that way." Utter silence from DH.
Sunday we went to my parents’ house for breakfast and DH was trying to get the scooter down a step. Rather than go out the front door with no step. SIL and I were standing waiting for him to make it over the step...a normal person would have balanced on their good foot using the wall as support and set the scooter over the step and then just put their knee down and been on there way.... not DH. He insisted on trying to ride the scooter down the step and ended up falling into my dad’s truck. Of course he's all upset and whining about his foot, which was completely fine in the boot and he never even put it down, but you know gotta get the sympathy. Even SIL was all why didn't you just do it the way I described above and DH got all pissed and was all "I didn't think that way!"
Take us Christmas Eve and Christmas. I have been doing everything for the festivities because DH is you know incapacitated. So I'm tired and just sick of his overall man baby ways. I was opening my new mixer at the counter and DH was sitting on the fireplace getting a fire going. I was busy setting stuff up when I looked over and DH was gone...okay I figured he went to the bathroom. Go about my business to look over and DH is on the floor with the damn knee scooter on its side. I rush over and DH is just laying that and I'm all "What happened?" DH just lays there and starts crying, “I fell over and landed on my foot and now I can’ get up?” So I check his foot it’s not bleeding and I help him get up onto the couch. I get him an ice pack and he finally admits he was not paying attention and trying to do something and didn’t look and fell when he missed the scooter. I made him put his damn boot back on and told him he was done, if he falls one more time I’m taking the damn thing away and he will need to use his crutches from now on. After that DH wouldn’t speak to me the rest of the day and he slept on the couch out of spite.
Sorry this is so damn long I am just frustrated and annoyed because anytime my DH has surgery he turns into this huge baby who needs tons of attention and coddling and I’m over it and over him being stupid and not even trying to think and acting like he had surgery on his whole damn body and not just his one foot!
