I didn’t write much yesterday because it was a rather trying day. Whenever I don’t publish at least three or four posts a day, it’s a safe bet that things aren’t going so well.
Yesterday was full of challenges related to Emmett’s fever disorder. He was in a horrible mood for most of the day and had zero tolerance for pretty much everything. I lost track of the meltdowns, but there were quite a few.
I personally had the hardest time when it came to dinner. There wasn’t anything in the house that he would eat.
Emmett’s tough to feed on a good day, very challenging to feed on a bad day, and impossible when he’s in a fever cycle. Last night was one of those impossible times, and it sucked.
Poor Emmett was really hungry, but his very limited list of tolerable foods is even more limited when he’s in a fever flare. When he’s in a flare, he becomes so much more sensitive to everything around him. He becomes overwhelmed very quickly, and his sensory issues kick into overdrive.
This typically lasts for the duration of the flare, and that can last up to ten days or more. Like I said, it sucks.
Last night there wasn’t anything Emmett would eat, and at 7 pm, I ended up running to the grocery store to pick up a few items that I was pretty sure he would eat.
