Elliott is not dealing with Gavin being gone very well. He has been riding and emotional roller coaster all day and like someone that ate too much before jumping on those ride, I’m about to lose it.
Seriously though, I feel bad for Elliott right now because he is so completely confused.
On one hand, Gavin had him so stressed out that he couldn’t sleep and if he did, they were flying of nightmares.
On the other hand, Elliott is fiercely loyal and loves Gavin to death.
We have been trying everything we can think of of to distract him but nothing seems to work for very long. I’ve even offered to talk about it as much as he needs to.
While Gavin has spent time away from home before, Elliott was much younger and wasn’t affected.
I sure wish there were some magic words that I could whisper in his ear that would make everything better. For now, all I can tell him is that everything will be alright.
