My husband was recently in the hospital for spinal surgery and whenever this happens (unfortunately he has had previous surgeries) I am reminded of the importance of self-care. While trying to be the best possible “nurse”, I can easily wind up forgoing exercise and letting my refrigerator wind up empty. And that my friends, is a mistake! You can only be a helpful caregiver if you first take care of yourself. It’s like being on an airplane, when you should put your oxygen mask on before your child. Luckily this hospital stay was short so I really didn’t need to adhere to my own advice, even though I did manage a VERY long walk one day, and a trip to the supermarket another. But in case it happens again in the future, hopefully FAR, FAR away future, or to someone you love, let’s all remember that we matter too!
