What am I ?

Hi,

My husband asked me what I was today. Since his stroke I spend a lot of time trying to determine which word he's looking for compared to the one that comes out of his mouth. I had him rephrase his question 3 times and it always came out the same so I finally asked him what HE thought I was. He said he didn't know but Bill (his friend) told him I was shaping up into a pretty good caregiver and what was that? I got out the big dictionary and had him look it up. Guess what ? It's not in any of the three dictionaries we have in the house ! Caretaker's in there but not caregiver. By this time Dick had gone on to other things but I was a little miffed at not even being in the dictionary. Now I'm feeling better about it though because I decided the reason they didn't list caregiver is because the definition would fill up SO many pages they'd have to print a special addition just for that one word.
