Ever since Gavin’s meltdown a week ago today, that led to his admission to the psychiatric unit at Akron Children’s Hospital, Elliott and Emmett have be extremely overstimulated.
They have both been bouncing off the walls and couches because they have so much excess, anxiety related energy.
Since Gavin’s come home, it’s just gotten worse. They are more wound up now than before. I’m not sure how to help them to come down, so to speak. I think they are torn between excitement and fear when it comes to their feelings about the big brother.
It’s got to be overwhelming for them and hopefully, as time goes on, they will settle down.
It’s unbelievable just how something like a violent meltdown and the hospitalization of their big brother, impacts their lives.
