You can throw cranky kids at me, too many after school commitments, volunteer work, careers, marital stress and on and on. The worst one is definitely an illness.
I have been very lucky so far that all of my kids have been healthy and happy. Recently though my son was diagnosed with a rare condition called epiploic appendigits. It is something that they expected to resolve on its own within a week or two. Unfortunately it has not and we are now in the middle of some pretty scary options with pediatric specialists and hospitals.
Not much worse than having to watch your kids be in constant pain and not knowing if it will be okay soon.
Kudos to all the other families out there that are going through tough times too.
Love you B – feel better fast ❤
