One day at a time

I spoke with the schools this morning and there’s a better than average chance that we’re done with school for the year. It ends next week and with Elliott testing positive yesterday, odds are he’s done for the year. The same goes for Emmett because he’s showing symptoms as well.

Emmett, Gavin, and I will retest tomorrow.

Gavin’s doing fine. No symptoms and he’s just carrying on like normal. I feel like shit, if I’m being honest. It’s mostly a headache that I can’t seem to shake right now but I feel run down, and I could sleep all day, if life allowed. Elliott’s been sleeping a lot as well.

Emmett seems to be doing okay, but he’s always miserable when he has a cold, and his symptoms are similar to that of a cold, or bad allergies. It’s not fun for someone with sensory issues. I’ve never been able to get my kids to articulate what it’s like but they are very sensitive to things like stuffy/runny nose, sore throat, cough, sneezing, and itchy/watery eyes.

Those things are hard for anyone but when sensory stuff is involved, all those things are experienced in a much more intensive way. I can see how difficult it is for them to cope with this.

I know that so many people have it worse and I’m so grateful that we don’t. At the same time, I’m still feeling overwhelmed by all of this. I’m going to take this one day at a time.

Thank goodness for the vaccine and booster shots!! It’s crazy how this virus effects people in different ways.

I know how you feel. My son also is sensitive to coughing and cold symptoms as well as his continuous gastrointestinal disorder that cause him great anxiety. Hope you all
