My alka-seltzer and musinex cocktail comma

I have been sick in bed all day with the bug that my husband gave me, I'm sure, since he was in bed last week about this same time. I have a sore throat, sniffles, fever, ache all over bug. As I drifted in and out of my Alka-Seltzer cold plus and musinex cocktail comma, I would hear the voices of my sweet granddaughter and my thoughtful husband. Yes, he kept her today, even thou I was sick, he managed to keep her occupied all day. She would come in now and then, give me something, say a few words and leave. He would bring me medicine, Kleenex, drinks, food, and of coarse my lap top. I did get on here a couple of times but they were short visits and small comments  because sleep at the time was over powering me.
After our granddaughter went home, I was feeling better but not stronger. The hubby would have to cook dinner as well before his day was over. He had me look in my NutriMirror menu and recipe log and bring up one of our favorite soups...Pasta E Fagioli Soup ... As I called the recipe out to him , he added all the  ingredients in his big soup pot he had dug out of out kitchen cupboard.... That will be a job for me to straighten back when I'm feeling better.
One by one, he added each idem and even thou I couldn't smell the true aroma pleasure that was filling the house, I knew it would be good  because it was made from loving hands.  I was just about to doze again when he said dinner was ready. This is how it turned out! Loving good!!!
