Myspace Layouts

Happy Thanksgiving!
I just wanted to let you all know how Thankful I am to have you for Great Support, your wonderful comments and kind words, really help me get through my day! Yesterday was a very hard day with Josh, but we got through it. In the middle of the night, he must have tossed and turned really bad, because his pump got knocked out. He was fine after dinner and at bedtime, but when he got up yesterday morning his blood sugar was really high, and he felt really sick, so I'm sure he probably went all night without getting any insulin. It just upsets me that these things are out of my control. I was telling my MIL, that I worry so much about him, she said that was good, I'm supposed to worry about my kids, but that's not really what I meant!With him more so beacause he can't take care of his diabetes by himself yet, and I'm trying to take care of. It's under control for the most part, but there are days, I feel so helpless! Knowing that he was sick while he slept, and there were no signs. He slept quietly, and I'm supposed to protect him against the unknown! I had no control over that, and that's what scares me. When he gets older and reads this, he'll probably laugh and blow it off, and tell me I just WORRY too much! That's OK, I'm his mother, and that's my job, right!! ;-)
You all have a good night and a good day tomorrow!

You're right about the worrying. Two of my boys are deaf with cochlear implants. That's okay. But the youngest one has additional challenges that can make some days VERY difficult. Very stressful. Makes me want to curl up in a ball and cry some days, probably more days than I care to admit to. And he can't communicate well about what's going on around him, if HE'S hurt or someone hurt him. I understand the helpless feeling and the need to protect him. Man, I've read your blog a few times now, but never knew you were going through this.

Hang in there, lady, and YES, do prioritize some time for YOU. "Caretaker Timeout", is what I call it. For sanity's sake. And I'm not kidding, I'm VERY serious about this.

Wow. I'm sorry that you and your son are going through that. I can't imagine. Although my daughter Taylor has asthma and some days it just breaks my heart when she's wheezing and a nebulizer treatment doesn't take care of it. Plus she has bad eczema and these symptoms are aggravated by the change in weather. It's tough to watch your children suffer no matter what it is. Stay strong. You're doing all that you can and that's ALOT!
