You make soup
When your partner is sick, you become a full-time chef (more than you perhaps already were). You’re making him fresh soup with chicken stock and vegetables. You know that chicken soup has many benefits for a sick person, like anti-inflammatory properties that increase white blood cells, and the ability to help clear congestion. You’re making him nourishing, comforting, hydrating meals. You’re also getting him nice bland foods like white rice, or potatoes, because you know his tummy can’t handle too much right now. You are very much catering the menu in the house to your partner’s illness. If he has a fever, you grab some popsicles to comfort him and cool him down (along with fever reducer, of course).
