I'm not mad, really!

My boyfriend has been sick.  He had extreme stomach pain yesterday that turned into vomiting and diarrhea, and has now subsided into just horrible bad back pain.  (Yes, I know, I need to get him to the doctor but he's stubborn and going to wait 24 hours to see if he heals himself)

He's the kind of person who takes care of everyone else, but won't let me take care of him even when he's in this much pain.  Ex: He insisted he walk the dog, was still trying to move and fix the refrigerator, and he put in a full day of work even with being sick.  He kept apologizing for "being boring" last night because he just slept, and then this morning said, he "wished I wasn't mad at him."

Cue my: WHA??! 

I was never mad and have no idea what gave him that impression.  I am concerned, and I feel terrible that he feels so sick.

I am not sure what I can do for him to help with the discomfort (I already got him real ginger ale and chicken soup) but I really want to do something.  And I want to do something to show him that I am far from mad.  

I just want to show him I care, and I just want to take care of him for once, but he won't let me and I don't know what else I can do.

Any ideas?

What do you do when your SO is sick?  What do you do when someone is very sick but refuses to accept any assistance?
