Is this a (really) weird thing to think..?

So a few months ago I had a really bad flu. Had to have 2 weeks (completely) off work and then the 3rd week I worked 50% (and I work from home) I was really bad.
I think I was brought 3 cups of tea in bed that first week. And that was the total amount of 'care' I received from DH..
It has got me thinking to the future - and that if I got a 'real' illness I wouldn't really be cared for..
I love DH to bits. He has his faults but he loves me to bits too. He is just very low maintenance himself- can go a day without eating if I didn't feed him etc - just eats to survive kind of thing.
So it keeps popping into my head that I would need to go and live with one of my daughters to survive if I did get sick (both my parents have had cancer ).. both my daughters are super caring (like me) and would definitely want me to come to them to be looked after - even my mum would want me to come and stay with her.
I feel like a bit of a hypochondriac weirdo to be even thinking this tho tbh.. lol !
Am I being weird? Or is this a form of survival (in case I get sick )

I'd imagine if push came to shove he wouldn't watch you starve.

You just need to provide him with instructions.

When I caught Covid my dh went to work. It was last July. Queried his logic just the other day. Apparently there was no point staying home just to make me cups of tea all day!
But I have already made it clear I lied about the In Sickness and In Health bit.. Won't be running round after him..
