Oh Weezie, my poor friend! I totally understand how exhausted you are. Our daughter did the same when she & my granddaughter lived with us. Her sister said it always seemed she had to be somewhere, get ready, etc, when it was time to feed, bathe, care for a sick baby. We were just lucky out other daughter was still recuperating from a work injury and could babysit during the days. My hubby and I would relieve her at nights. Mommy was pretty much all about herself, and having fun. And our granddaughter has had asthma & bronchitis since she was a baby. She ended up in the hospital with pneumonia at 1 yr, and again in kindergarten.

I promise there is hope for the future. But it wasn't until our daughter moved out and got their own place. She moved because we set some ground rules that she wasn't going to come home at all hours of the night, keeping the baby off schedule. Coming in late was disruptive to the rest of us sleeping because the baby was crying most of the time. So we told her on weeknights she had to be home by 11 pm, and on weekends midnight. She didn't like our rules so she moved out and matured fast, when she truly found out she was responsible 100% for her child. She's even married and has stepkids.

I wish I could help you care for Bella. When my youngest was 14 mos old she started getting sick every week with something new, and she couldn't shake it. At 18 mos her doctor ordered labs that showed extremely high white count blood cells. So he ordered a bone scan thinking leukemia. Thank God it wasn't, but it took another 6 weeks, and him contacting a child disease specialist. It turned out she had Cytomegalovirus. The had to give her steroids and strong antibiotics. She started sick on and off for 7-8 years, then she became healthier than the rest of us. But I was so exhausted caring for her when she was little. Now I'm the one that catches everything! Go figure... Lol.

I'm praying for Bella to get well, and for God to give you strength and resistance to the virus. If you get it, hopefully it will be short lived. (((Hugs))) & prayers! 🙏🌼
