In the last week:

  • My family doctor spend twenty minutes with Hope and offered ME tranquilizers.
  •  My grandson has been sick and needed to to see the doctor three times + 4 hours @ hospital getting fluids.
  • Hope's therapist asked if I was thinking of giving up.
  • 1 1/2 days on girls school (won but tiring)
  • Hope had a good day Thursday. Today is day # 4 of impossible.
  • The Dad is fried- complaining that being with the girls is not relaxing.
  • I hurt.
  • I am tired.
and bedtime is five hours away.

On the plus side: I am at 23/500 in Corey's Fundraiser and I am registered for Orlando!

You probably could use some restful sleep, but until Hope settles a bit more, you have to be just as vigilant as she is.

I'm sorry. Is respite an option yet?

GB's Mom said...

Not yet. MHA said their respite workers couldn't keep her safe. They want to bump her up to a program for children in danger of being placed. I won't do that. We are negotiating. Sigh.

I just shook my head when I read the first one.
Sorry your grandson is still sick; that's so draining for everyone involved when they're so young. Congrats on 23 miles!! Hoping that bedtime comes quickly and everyone sleeps soundly tonight!

Can you share the tranquilizers with a few of us Moms?! :-D Wishing you a few extra moments of peace and a good night of rest.

Mamita J said...

Praying for you right now. You must be so exhausted. :-( I'm sorry. Wish I could give you a hug.

Kristin said...

I have to respect the fact that they know their limitations. But how stressful.

Amanda said...

Is she 8 years old yet? I've found that, in most cases, things slowly begin to improve after 8-9 years of age.

Wishing this will be the case for Hope too.

Maybe tranquilizers would be a good thing. lol, not really.

Thank you so much for your kind comment to my marriage post. It makes me feel so loved and I am just so very stinking excited!! Turns out my parents are going to pay for a wedding for like 80 guest at a lodge with a pool. Dear Lord above I am happy!
