So sorry to hear you’re having a tough time Gentry. Able & Raster have given very sound advice I’ve nothing to add on that front.
Jackie… I LOVE the nest idea!! When I was at my worst die off stage before Christmas (headaches, exhaustion, dead legs) I had the 3 & 4yr olds “go camping” in the front room! They brought all the blankets & pillows down and spent ages setting it up… they brought a mini dvd player in and snacks (usually not allowed anywhere but the kitchen/ diner so a huge treat!!). I didn’t join them in there but it meant that I could focus just on the baby while they played away for hours! And when I was at my worst I’d put the baby in his stroller and have the 12 year old wheel him up & down the hall. We watched a lot of movies together too which was actually quite nice.
Best of luck with the rest of your recovery Gentry… it’s worth it to get better for yourself and those kiddies!
