Doc C has had a nasty cold this weekend, and he's been super-paranoid about passing it on to Eva; so he slept on the sofa for a couple of nights and he's still too worried about germs to pick her up. Naturally Eva decided that this was the perfect time to be a weeny bit needy, so I've been catering to her every whim and trying to persuade the Doc to let me occaisionally make him a cup of tea.
The saying that doctors make terrible patients is very true, in the case of my Doc (Phd) it's because he tries really hard to be no trouble at all. It makes it very difficult to look after him, because he will insist he doesn't need to be - even when he can barely open a can of chicken soup for himself.
Happy New Year and let's hope that 2013 brings a wave of incredible good health to us all!
