My boss let it be known to me today that he doesn't even know if his wife got staples or stitches when she had her c-section. He still has her sleeping in the bedroom with the baby while he sleeps in the master BR. His wife has some "issue" regarding health that caused her to go back to the dr shortly after being discharged from the hospital when the baby was born. He says she is trying to keep up with the baby's feeding needs as she breastfeeds so there's not much he can do to help. He doesn't think she's been back to the dr yet to have any staples removed or stitches checked, etc. He says he "doesn't do well with blood" so that's why he has to "stay away from all that" and that's why he doesn't know. I asked him how he held up when her water brokoe at home and he said "the power was off so I didn't see any of it". To me, I don't think this man is normal at all. But I was wondering if others here find this acceptable. I do recall my mother telling me she had a friend in the 1960's who's husband made her sleep in a separate br or on the floor when she was menustrating. That's bad enough- but that was in the 60's and back in a very rural area. I was a single mom but I would have expected my husband to be involved in all aspects of having a baby and care about my health and medication status, had I been married. Maybe that is why I'm not married. LOL! I'm not going to get obsesssed with this because I have too many other things to worry about and this issue isn't mine, but I am curious if I'm expecting too much out of people or if others here think this seems out of the norm.
