How could it have got any worse??
Well, I don't know what I did in a previous life but this week has been a crazy one. William had his diagnosis of neurological problems and we have been coming to terms with the implications of that. It has been so exhausting, but then, last night things got so much worse. Paul was hit by a car and has mulitple fractures in his leg and breaks and lacerations in his face. He is now in hospital and has had pins put in his leg. I can't believe this has happened. Having to deal with Paul's condition when he is not here to share what is going on with William. He will be out of action for months. I was at the hospital with him all last night and didn't get any sleep then or during today. At the moment this has made everything seem like a big mess but I hope it will all settle after a bit of sleep. I have decided to stay a couple of days at the Chase hospice with Wills next week to get a break and battery recharge and some peace to take everything on board. My wonderful parents (whom I know now read this) are taking Ellie and Hope so I can really catch up with some sleep while Wills is being looked after there. That place really is a lifeline!
