He’s like a raw nerve

It’s been a long ass day, and I know this will come as a surprise to you, but I’m exhausted. The boys had therapy tonight, and for the most part, it went okay.

Several teachable moments arose during the session, but I’m not sure much was learned.

Emmett’s like a raw nerve. His new meds aren’t really helping yet cause it’s too soon and he’s having a rough time with life. Elliott is dealing with lots of teen angst, and Gavin’s is just significantly struggling in general. Add some frustration to the mix, and you have an explosive combination..



Elliott and Emmett are mostly manageable. I mean, it’s a long of work, and it’s exhausting, but it’s manageable. Gavin is incredibly confused at times throughout the day and making decisions based on that confusion. It’s creating turmoil amongst those in our household.

Anyway, I topped my day off by chilling with my Mom while my Dad was working tonight. I brought Ruby with me because I want to get her and Cleo, my parent’s dog, together. They’ve only met once, and it didn’t go so well.

Things went pretty well tonight. I took both Cleo and Ruby for a walk at the same time. They did great together.

I got home a little while ago. Lizze and I are going to call it a night. I’d love to be able to get up super early again and go walking. For the moment, I’d be grateful for a good nights sleep.

  1. Hey, tell your mom I feel her pain (hopefully not too much). And I’ve had 2 knees done and I’m starting to think I’m going to be able to exercise (walk) again! And even if therapy hurts it’s good. Tell her icing her knee a lot will help too.

    Not ignoring your stuff, Rob, I read your posts and meditate over them. I think you’re doing a great job and hopefully you’ll get that interview still. And it’s no wonder you forgot…between death and sadness and surgery you’re actually doing an amazing job. I’m sure it doesn’t FEEL amazing. But you love your family and are doing the best you can.

    1. (I kind of consolidated my comment, as I read the one about the missed interview first.)
