Any one else bummed because of medical issues and Christmas
My son is on pretty shaky ground medically. I can't risk leaving the area because at any minute I might have to take him back to Children's for an inpatient stay. My sister doesn't want to come down to us which means I won't be able to see her or her family because I can't risk taking Alec that far away from his specialists and hospital. I'm turning down family diners with extended family because physically my son can't handle that much activity and any regression right now would land him an inpatient stay.
My mom is not handling the medical stress very well and is freaking out over every little thing. Thankfully my father is a pastor and deals with people in medical crisis a lot so he has been very helpful and not adding to my emotional burden. I am under a great deal of stress and just can not emotionally handle other people freaking out on me. I'm a single Mom so falling apart emotionally isn't an option since I have to be the glue that holds it together for my son and makes it right (or as right as I can). He is hurting physically and needs me to be the one that makes it right for him. Even in pain he is still excited about Santa so hopefully I can keep him home to celebrate Christmas if not then I will have to think of something to make a Christmas hospital stay special.
