I hope to schedule @CKPHeatingCool as soon as possible 

It’s pushing 2 AM and three of the five of us are still awake because of the heat. It feels so much worse now then it did all day long. 

Lizze and I gave up our room tonight, because it’s the coolest place in the house. Elliott and Emmett have both staked their claims on our king size mattress. Emmett did manage to fall asleep, but Elliott is still awake, and not likely to fall asleep. 

Lizze and I are in the living room, on opposite couches. 

It’s so hard to get comfortable, and moving at all just increases the misery. Poor Elliott is breaking out with heat rash, and is super itchy. Gavin is sleeping off his IVIG infusion, but at least he’s sleeping. 

I’m going to try and fall asleep, but I don’t like Elliott still being awake. Also, our first floor windows are wife open, and that makes me a bit nervous. 

I can’t wait until we can afford to get the A/C fixed. The kids are miserable, and Sensory issues make this so much worse for the kids. 

That said, we’re going to stay strong, hunker down, and pray for cooler weather.

So sorry you are going through this. We are with you in spirit. Our AC quit yesterday and it’s going to be 90+ here for a couple more days. Repairperson? Not for a couple more days. Maybe we will take the opportunity to go to see Wonder Woman; thank god for AC theatres. Donating you $ so you can join us in spirit.

Dot… Thank You so much. I received it this morning. I hope you get yours fixed quickly as well, and you enjoy the movie… ☺


I really feel for you. The heat is unbearable where I live, but we have cooling talcum powder and a variety of herbs to help. I’m not sure you can find them in your part of the world. Of the top of my head, you could try peppermint oil. Dilute a few drops of peppermint oil with some kind of carrier oil (coconut, almond,). Apply it on wet skin after the shower. I use it myself. Will keep you cool for an hour or two. Maybe that’s enough to get the boys to fall asleep.
