Consider how tired and beat up you felt, then contemplate that this is every minute of every day in a man-flu sufferers life. It’s traumatic stuff.
Service – Your man is going to be totally unable to do even the simplest of tasks himself, so you should keep yourself close at hand at all times. Under no circumstances should you imply he is being ridiculous (please see previous two points). If emergency strikes and you must move further than spitting distance of your loved one, you must be sure to provide a bell so he may make you aware if he requires absolutely anything at all.
