LOUISE Thompson has gushed over fiancé Ryan Libbey as he does the “lion’s share of the work” after she almost died giving birth to their son.
She spent a month in hospital recovering as Ryan took charge as the main caretaker.
Sharing some heartwarming pics of Ryan and Leo cuddling, Louise opened up on all that her fiancé had done.
“✍🏼2021 has been the hardest year of my life by miles. And I really mean that. MILES,” she started her long tribute to her beau.
“But there is someone in my life who will have found it equally as hard. This guy ☝🏼
“He has had to witness things that no partner should ever have to. He has called ambulances. He has been inside (and outside) operating theatres for hours.
“He has had to bring up our son as a single parent for the first month+ of his life.”
Louise added: “He has slept on the hard floor of the hospital for a week. (I didn’t realise that he would sneak off to the chapel in the middle of the night to pray)… and that’s before things even got bad.
“Then he had to come home and organise the entire house whilst looking after a newborn because it was still pretty much a building site.
“He has coordinated my whole family so that they could come and visit me and minimise the stress.”
Louise then explained: “He has had to look after me and the baby for the first few weeks of me arriving home because I haven’t been able to look after myself.
“- He has showered me
– Injected me
– Changed sanitary towels
– Washed my hair
– Cooked for me
– Cleaned the house
– Done every food shop
– Had MANY sleepless nights looking after the baby (sometimes colicky)
– Driven me to the ambulatory care department for daily drips
– Not to mention the fact he kindly brought the baby to the hospital to visit me everyday when I was an impatient so we could bond (even though I was too out of it/hyper vigilant to be able to).”
“He never complains,” Louise added.
“And he’s still doing the LION’S share of the work between the two of us. Ryan I commend you. I don’t know many men who would be able to handle this situation with such grace and fortitude.
“You are my rock 🪨 and I’m so sorry for what you’ve been through.
“2022 better be our year!! I will do my best to be strong for u two ❤️.”
