A few weeks ago my middle child ended up in the hospital with a migraine that we could not get under control. I had picked him up from school earlier because he just couldn’t make it through the day. But by the time he got home he was so much worse. A call to the doctor and we were told to bring him in right away. Immediately, she wanted him sent to the hospital due to his hyper sensitive reflexes and an MRI was ordered. That was a long 24 hours. Seeing him get hooked up to IVs and getting blood drawn all while not knowing exactly what was wrong was terrifying.
From there we had to go to the Children’s Hospital to see the pediatric neurologist. We finally got a diagnosis for my son. There are several more appointments and tests in his future but we are on the path to getting everything figured out. In fact, today was his first appointment at yet another doctor. Which is why I am late posting.
This year I am homeschooling my youngest child. So days have been filled with his school work, my work (luckily I work from home), then picking up the others from school or work.
This week I started taking my nephew to school in the mornings. That was another adjustment we had to make.
Over this past month I feel like I haven’t really taking some time to myself. So, the other night I took a break from working on my newest book to start reading one I had been wanting to read. Rescued By That New Guy In Town by our very own hound J.L. Salter. It has been an amazing way to relax after a long day, curling up with that book, reading a chapter or two a night, while sipping a cup of hot tea.
Have you ever had a period in your life where it seemed like everything was moving fast and chaotic? What did you do to relax?
