I’m in for a pretty tough week ahead. While Lizze is getting the help she needs for her migraine I’ll be looking after the kids. So far Gavin is the only one not sick. Emmett has been is “rare form” lately and so I already know my hands will be full. My only hope is that this infusion works and Lizze will be able to come home and relieve me so I can rest up a bit.
We had several appointments this week, all the kids current therapies, an appointment at Akron Children’s and one at the Cleveland Clinic. We made the choice to reschedule those in order to ensure Lizze gets this procedure done. Sometimes we have to put oursleves first as means of putting the kids first. If that makes sense.
Thankfully, I have been able to blog more regularly since getting my phone back so at least I have that. 🙂
It's a misnomer that special needs parents have to take care of the kids first, before everything, and everyone, else. Absolutely – you need to not only take care of yourselves, and proactively do so!
My prayers are with you all. It's a tough thing, to be sure, but I know you will be able to pull it off. Hopefully, Lizzie will benefit from being able to focus on getting better. You take a few minutes to take care of being well too! And *hugs*, my new friends, because sometimes the best I can offer, but it is truly from the heart!. –Kat

It makes perfect sense to me. I hope things work out for all. Glad you're taking care of yourself.
you can NOT take care of the kids WITH OUT sometimes putting yourselves first. If your unable to care for them because you have not cared for yourself it benefits no one. <3 you guys. Keep me updated on the infusion.
