Elliott and Emmett are on the mend and doing much better. I woke up this morning with a pounding headache and spent most of the day, unable to get out of bed for very long. I think whatever this is, just hit me differently than it did the boys.
Unfortunately, about 7 PM this evening, Gavin joined the ranks of the pukers.
This is potentially very dangerous because of his autonomic issues. Gavin’s body exists in a very delicate balance and while he’s been very stable in recent years, it doesn’t take much to get his system out of balance. When this happens, he can go into an autonomic crisis and require admittance to the hospital. It’s actually kinda scary.
The kids were supposed to be at their moms tonight to celebrate Christmas but it was postponed until tomorrow. I was supposed to use the time to finish my Christmas shopping but that went down the toilet, literally.
It looks like their visit might have to be pushed back again.
The kids are all upset about this but it’s outside of anyone’s control. All we can do is adapt to it. If I have to, I’ll give up Christmas so they can see their mom. That will be really hard but the kids come first.
Anyway, I haven’t eaten anything all day because the last thing I need is anything in my stomach. I’m really hoping that I’ve made it through the worst of it and I’ll be back on my feet in the morning. I’m out of Gatorade but Gavin and I have carbonated water (flavored) and gingerale to help keep us hydrated.
I’m going to be honest, this has been a shitty 30 days but the good news is it can only get better from here.
