The boys are both really sick and won’t be at school in the morning. Elliott seems to be getting worse and Emmett is quickly catching up. Both are running fevers and I’m going to call Akron Kids in the AM to see if I can get them seen by their pediatrician.
Their mom just got over strep throat and Emmett is presenting in a very similar way.
Elliott is being treated for bronchitis and he seems like he’s struggling more today than he was yesterday. The fever is new and he just sounds awful. I’m worried because he tends to go south quickly when it comes to respiratory issues. His asthma complicates things. He’s prone to pneumonia and I just want to stay on top of this.
If Emmett has strep, that needs treated as well. Both are miserable and upset that they are unable to go to school in the morning. Hopefully, the boys will be able to return to school in short order. Right now, my priority is ensuring that they get better ASAP.
I hate seeing them sick and I swear to God the only thing worse than one sick Autistic child, is two sick Autistic children. I’m overwhelmed by all of this and I’m trying my best to make sure everyone is okay.
It’s really challenging as a single parent and I have so much respect for those out there who’ve been doing this longer than I have. This shit is not easy but it’s absolutely worth it.
