Thomas had another rough week which resulted in his Dr sending him to be hospitalized. They currently say at least 5-7days. Once settled in, fed, & bathed, he seemed in better spirits. Hes been off all medications & hes been a totally different child every 10mins. One minute hes happy, the next hes biting, kicking, clawing… just praying they find a solution. I am scared he could really end up hurting someone.
Also, according to my own hospital trip the night before, I officially made myself sick “due to extreme stress.” I never believed it was really possible.. but apparently it is- the doctor took one look at me and knew right away….Im really sick & have “stress ulcers” ( I think it looks like chicken pox)- and apparently wont get better unless/until I give myself time to rest/heal. Im dripping sweat( like with a high fever), my throat/glands & eyes are swollen, etc. They cant give me anything to help.
I have no one to care for the boys (&no $$), so yesterday I did what any mother would do- left the other 3 together, packed up my 9yr old son, put the $80 of gas it took on a credit card, & somehow succeeded in getting him to the hospital. From there, he was taken to another hospital by ambulance about an hour from our home (I followed) & hospitalized.
I actually feel it was best for him, but its devastating to leave the hospital empty handed.
I’m thankful its only temporary.
I will be making the drive everyday until he comes home. Though honestly have no idea how Ill even cover gas. (Or how long I can hold up)
Im sad he will miss the holiday weekend – which I had planned to take off & just spend sometime as a family.
Michael & Christopher will be out of town Friday night– Michael Is opening at a concert for KJ-52!
So, now Friday will be just Andrew & I. All other plans are out the window.
Of course, I am also down to a month to find $3600 for plumbing & get our entire household moved. Idk how.
(All Of the above on my mind is probably why I’m up at 4 a.m.)
