Two of my three kids are sick and I’m slowly but surely losing my mind

I’ve been writing this throughout the day, so it keeps getting longer and longer as I near the end of the night.

Anyway, Emmett’s not sleeping yet but he’s getting close and I’m pretty sure Elliott is out like a light. I’m feeling stressed out but the house is quiet and I’m decompressing as I finish writing this. I’m good for now and plan on doing better tomorrow. I know I’ve been back at this single parenting thing for about 8 months now but I’m still getting my feet underneath me. As the kids begin to slowly do better, I find myself in a better headspace.

Gavin will be getting his infusion done first thing in the morning. I want to make sure we stay on top of this, especially now.

Since the kids are home sick, walking is out of the question so it looks like I’ll be diving into some strength training instead.

I’m also hoping to be able to pull the trigger on Elliott and Emmett’s new mattresses. Gavin still refuses to get a new one and I’m not fighting him on it right now cause there’s bigger fish to fry. I’m really hoping this helps the boys sleep better and encourages Emmett to use his own bed once again. Their mattresses are old and definitely not comfortable. They deserve this and I’m grateful to be able to pull this off.

Please stay safe, be smart and for the love of God, wash your hands with soap and water for a minimum of 20 secs. ☺

I feel for you Rob. We’re going through some health issues with our son right now and my we are extremely worried and anxious about the COVID19 virus which is now in our area. Just know that even with my own problems and worries, I’m pulling for you and your boys, hoping they get better soon and that somehow this unexpected virus is somehow conquered by doctors and scientists working together around the world. You all take care and be safe and healthy.
