Oh Katie, not what any of you need!  I'm so sorry!  I get Strep really easy and have had it on Thanksgiving before, my son was hospitalized with it when he was a child, it's not fun.  Praying you're over it soon and the antibiotics kick in soon for all of you.  I know, it's times like these we really miss them...

I hope you all will be feeling better soon.  I don't remember strep throat but i do remember ear aches.  Sorry for you all.

Each special occasion is difficult after a loss ❤️.  I am thinking you have too many family not at the table with you and my heart  knows your heart  is still really breaking.

I pray for you that you will accept God's love.

So we made it through thanksgiving but not unscathed.  Myself and both boys are sick.

This is a long bumpy road... 

Katie:  So very sorry for your family to be so ill.  It seems like more challenges are everywhere for you and your sweet ones.  Your Mom sounds so loving to be there with all of you.  Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers.  Dee

Thank you ALL here.

im shopping for Christmas for the boys and I’m super sad and triggered that I’m missing Allen doing this with me and missing Gracie Noah and the other babies that belong here.  Life isn’t fair.  I want to scream it on top of my lungs or punch something but I know I can’t rationally do this. My heart is broken so much.  Caleb has been talking about Noah a lot as he has the most memories with him.  And he misses his dad so much.  Our family is so broken.  😢💔

Katie, Gin says it aptly...we are pulling for you.  Maybe you should buy a punching bag and install it in your garage?  I did that once years ago when I was going through a lot, it actually helped me get some of my feelings out.

Hi Katie ❤️🙏. I wish I could help.  Please know you are in my heart and my prayers.

Frustration buster - A teacher friend told me that when she was up to her eyes in frustration or other feelings she would go to a second hand store or garage sale and buy dishes.  Particularly the large plates.  When she felt in the mood she would go out to her sidewalk and smash the dishes one item at a time, savouring the sounds, feelings, and sight.  When she felt better it was easy to clean up and she was good until the next time.  -   just a thought 😲

Except it wouldn't take much to hurt a dog or cat's paw if she missed cleaning up a piece.  I took Arlie on a walk a couple days ago, and where a person parks their old car, a whole bunch of paint had come off, I mean a LOT of pieces all at once, she must have brushed it off after it snowed.  Arlie reached down before I could process what was happening and ATE some of the paint!  Mind you, he has acute chronic Colitis and I have to COOK for him and give him probiotics and Metamucil and he goes and does that!  No figuring animals sometimes...  :D

Seriously, Katie, you have a lot inside of you to process, and getting physical with an activity might help relieve some of what is inside...Marty, sounds like the voice of experience!  ;)

I know screaming into a pillow didn't help.  Head hurt big time, so I quit.  Another "momism"  was she said you  couldn't cry over spilled milk.  Guess we will never get the milk back in the bottle, but you do spend a lot of time cleaning up the spill..  When it comes right down to it, nothing really helps.  I seldom remember dreams, one was so stupid I had to remember it, I had a job cutting clutch purses in three even pieces.  Never dream where Billy is in them till this morning and I am still angry even though it was not real, and I know it.  like I said, very seldom remember the dream.  Now, I will have to forget this one.  Sometimes we have too much put on us, sometimes not enough.
