We are officially entering week two of the boys being sick. Thankfully, it doesn’t appear that Gavin is among those counted sick.
I called my Mom last night because I just don’t know what to do. The boys have already missed a week of school and I feel like I’m doing something wrong, although that could be the sleep deprivation talking.
After chatting for a bit with my Mom, we sorta figured that there’s really only 2 school days this week and if the boys still aren’t feeling good, perhaps just writing those two days off is best.
It gives them more time to get better before reentering that petri dish called school.
My Mom has volunteered to go to the school and pickup some of their schoolwork, so I can help them to get caught up a little at a time.
The boys have been running fevers on and off now for about 8 days.
Emmett’s I think is a really bizarre fever cycle but Elliott is something respiratory.
Fevers have been low grade but enough to signify that they aren’t well.
We’ve all been trapped in the house together for 99% of the time and I’m pretty sure that I’m going crazy. My good friend Joel Manzer from Autisable said that only one of us is allowed to go crazy at any given time. I’m not sure it works that way Joel but I appreciate the gesture my friend. lol
Anyway, as you can imagine, with the boys not feeling well and going a little stir crazy, it’s been extra challenging.
I’ve been nursing this stomach thing but outside of that, not sleeping and a headache, I’m hanging in there. My stress level is a whole other story and likely contributing to my being under the weather.
My goal this week is to simply make some forward progress. I’m looking for baby steps and I think that’s reasonable.
I’m really grateful that things haven’t been any worse. Gavin’s still feeling good and that’s a huge win because I would be totally freaking out if he got sick.
Going into this week, I’ve decided to reserve judgment on how things are going to play out until they actually play out.
Perhaps going in with a positive attitude will set things off on the right foot. ☺
