Nursing is a tough job. My first wife and mother of my kids is a nurse but she is cold to the bone. Her personality didn't let death become an issue but created problems elsewhere. I would not want her taking care of me.
My current wife on the other hand, I'm blessed to have. She would make an awesome care giver if she didn't have such a weak stomach.
I've been building this rambler for 8 years now, spend a ton of time in the garage,and she has not said a negative thing about it..Ever.
If your lucky enough to have a great partner you are truly blessed.
