Thank you all so much for the responses and the hugs. It feels good to get support and encouragement, and it's really helping me feel more confident about the whole thing.
I looked up my local mothers of twins group online and there is one close by - I will get in touch with them in a few months to get that support system going. It looks like they will do meals for new families which is really nice. I have a hard time asking for help so it's going to take some time to work up to that - I guess I should start making my lists now so that I have a few months to target people and work up the courage!cdahlgrd
, I think I will keep the "I can do anything for a few weeks" mantra in my head - that's a good one!Sierra
, what a beautiful post, thank you for sharing a bit of your life with me. You are right about getting the opportunity to prepare. A lot of the things that got me through Jackson's illness will be the same things that will get me through this... it's just hard to know that I'll have to muster that strength and stamina again. BUT, like you said, at least I can prepare for it this time - I didn't get that luxury when Jackson was diagnosed.
Thanks again for the replies and the
