I’ll Take That

I cannot even write much but I do need to write something because my mind is just spinning. The last couple days have taken all of my energy. Daniel is having a very hard time and that means several hours of not fun for anyone in the house. I will just leave it at that. I think he is having sinus problems and he doesn’t know how to tell me. He gets upset with me when I do not know what is wrong or how to help him and then he will refuse to let me help him at all. We had a pretty intense day yesterday, he was incredibly upset with me, I tried to give him medicine because I did manage to get out of him “my head hurts”, David had to come down and hold him because he would not let me give it to him.

After we got the medicine in him, David was holding him (deep pressure love) and he laid with David quietly.

They were laying on the floor watching me, Ariel and Joshua play, he said “I love you Daddy”. He said it in his sweet, soft voice and I wasn’t sure if I had heard him right. I asked him what he said again “I love you Daddy”. YES! That was the first time ever he had said that to David. The moment brought tears to our eyes. It may be rough at times and it may take a lot of energy but man I love it when he surprises us like that! He has still been kind of um…not so fun today, but he did start taking his vitamins whole for me and I no longer have to cut them into small pieces, I’ll take that. :-)

I am happy to say that even though it has been rough, I am still at peace.

I may not be able to think very well, my mind is all fuzzy, but I haven’t gone into complete overload or shut down mode. Hopefully, Daniel will feel better. We are all feeling off because we just got a warm front come in and there is pollen everywhere which causes us sinus problems. At least it’s sunny, I will be thankful for that, along with the other things. :-)

    Hope he gets well soon, my *CAL is the same with medication. She can’t cope with the taste or texture. She will very often just vomit it back up.
    It’s horrible when you know they are ill and they can’t explain what is wrong.
    Thinking of you and praying for you.
    Love and hugs.
    Lisa.

    Sorry he is not feeling well, but how wonderful that he said that to David. It’s so amazing how the sweetest things can happen even in the midst of difficulties.

    Hope he is feeling better very soon.

    So sorry he’s been feeling sick – that’s so hard on the parents, too. And how wonderful for him to tell his dad he loves him. I hate when my own kids are sick, but I have to admit there’s a closeness with them at that time that is pretty powerful, too. Hope Daniel feels much better soon.

    Thanks everyone for the well wishes! Daniel is doing a lot better today. He has said I love you but it has always been after we said it. He has only told me twice, what seemed out of the blue that he loved me. It was pretty great that he not only understood that David was helping him but he also connected that love with David taking care of him. I am so happy about him taking to David much more. Of course I love him coming to me too but he is learning that I am not the sole person in the house. :-)

    When we go through these moments, when he is having a hard time or not feeling well, I try to stay intuitive to the big thing he will do at the end or in the middle because it seems to be a pattern with him. I tend to try different things during that time and it works. He not only did that but the eating the vitamins whole was huge for him. He has also had another burst of vocabulary that was completely unexpected! He told me yesterday that he was upset with me! It was awesome, he told me why he was upset and I told him I was sorry I didn’t mean to upset him, we hugged and then read some books! I am pretty excited for him to be able to communicate like that. So we have had a pretty good day today! Yea!
