i was just wondering........ i've heard countless times from sooo many doctor's we've seen when they ask the infamous so, how about family support? my answer is always umm what family support, minimal. so i just wanted to ask, what does that look liike or is it like for you guys? does grandma and grandpa make trips over, watch kids? go out of their way to help out? i know some of you have the type of family i have and yes it is a struggle. yet i was wondering with other ppl what is that like? do you ask, do they just offer? for those of us who do it with-o good for us but quite frankly too bad we dont' have it. i text my brother today from the er. kinda kidding yet said we're back in a e.r. again difficult child slipped on ice outside our home, broke bone in wrist on growth plate, gotta head to ortho guy in two days. his response...... oh the ongoing drama filled life. that's what i get. i get for years from my mom up till recently well your doing this wrong that wrong. there is never just the offer to drive over spend the day, let me get a break go buy food, go to gym take a walk. i gotta practically beg them to come visit for difficult child's birthday this coming monday. i'm just so tired of it. the phone calls are mostly about HER life, HER struggles, what she's up to. so yup i sit give advice listen to her talk with-o a breath for umm twenty min. sometimes i set the phone down go do something and return and she's still rambling. so self serving is how i feel about them.
