Gavin has officially been home an entire day. At this point, it looks as though he will be here until Wednesday evening.
I have to say that I think Sunday went pretty well, considering.
Gavin was very well behaved and aside from his usual bizarre behavior, he didn’t have any significant issues.
Elliott and Emmett on the other hand, we’re a completely different story. Neither one of them would listen and Emmett was literally bouncing off of everything he could. Elliott spent a good deal of time crying/whining.
They had fun with Gavin but were completely overwhelmed at the same time.
I honestly hate doing this to both of them and Lizze but we have no other choice for the next few days.
Elliott and Emmett keep wanting to play with Gavin upstairs and we keep telling them no, for obvious reasons. It’s exhausting having to repeat myself over and over again. I wish I could allow them to all play together upstairs. It would make my life a whole lot easier. Unfortunately, it’s simply not safe and Gavin needs to be very closely supervised.
Right now we’re 1 day down and 2.5 days to go.
I hope everyone does well in the morning because I have a ton of work to donate Lizze is not going to be feeling well.
We remained positive all day Sunday and Lizze did fantastic with Gavin, despite the fact that she’s terrified of him. I’m really proud of her but her bravery comes at a very high price. She’s in a great deal of pain and her stress level is immeasurable.
However, the important thing is that we have lived to fight another day.
Sometimes surviving is the truest victory.
