I’m lying flat on my back in bed, typing this on my phone. Won’t be very fancy, but I wanted to encourage you, parents.
Yesterday was a tough day for me. Dr. J had virtually no ability to focus and just about as much capability for self-control. I cried.
Today I hurt my back exercising. I cried. Made it to the bed and asked Dr. J to get me the ice pack. Not only did he bring it, he wrapped it in a dish towel for me. He brought in my laptop and turned on Piano Guys. With my instruction, he was able to heat up the heat pack in the microwave. He would not have been able to do that yesterday. He made me a get well letter from his fish.
Meatball cried with me, brought me my water glass, and drew me a picture.
Don’t give up, parents. Today my boys are showing me kindness. Keep modeling behavior and persevering!
