If DH is sick he has an afternoon nap, sleeps all night, gets his dinner made for him and I look after the kids. He tries to help when I'm sick but it's not the same.

I wish I could rest when sick. I can't. I have a 17 month old and a 4 yr old and DH works for himself.
I couldn't care less about housework but ds1 is only in daycare 2 days a week and ds2 is home every day, they don't let me rest.

I sure do. I'm not going to be sick for a couple of weeks when I can rest and get over the worst of in three days.

I rest in such of I don't do housework. You should see my house right now as I don't have the energy to tidy/clean it thanks to morning sickness.
If I am really struggling DH will get takeaway, safer than him cooking.
I still however at least have to help with bath routine and I put both boys to bed. If it's a weekend DH will do a lot of the child caring so I can sit down but Monday - Friday I'm on my own with a 2 1/2 yr old and 8 month old and they never seem to get the message that mummy feels like rat Sh!t

Hubby can only take 1 day off when I am discharged after my surgery, so I will need to battle on with the kids. As I said, Lucy is only just 2, so lifting her will be difficult and likely very painful. Not looking forward to it!

Oh no! Why only 1 day?? That's pretty hard on you. Can you get someone to help for a couple of days? Even hire a temp nanny? If you lived near me I would bring you some meals and clean your house!

Nope 4 kids and a husband that works crazy hrs I don't have the time.
Mind you I do cook simpler meals and only clean the bare essentials.
