P is 7 Years 9.5 Months Old
R is 6 Years 8.5 Months Old
J is 2 Years 5 Months Old

Iím going through a really tough time at the moment...have had a horrendous few weeks  :(

My beautiful sister was killed in a road traffic accident last week  :'( I had to identify her body in the morgue and make all the funeral arrangements  :'( I wrote her eulogy and read it out at the funeral  :'(

My mum was only out of hospital one week when the accident happened. She had been critically ill with sepsis and pneumonia. I got a call from a doctor one day while I was in work to tell me that my mam was going to pass away but thankfully she slowly pulled out of it. She needs a lot of extra care since she got out of hospital and now she is absolutely heartbroken by my sister's death :( I am looking after her every weekend.

    P is 7 Years 10 Months Old
    R is 6 Years 9.5 Months Old
    J is 2 Years 6 Months Old Today

    Itís 5 weeks since my sister E passed away and I still canít believe what happened. I donít think I will ever forget seeing her in the morgue  :-\ I havenít smoked in 10 years but when I came out of the morgue that night I had to have a cigarette. Myself and my sister shared a room when we were growing up and did everything together as kids and teenagers. She lived in a different part of the country for the last 20 years so I hadnít seen her much. I had spoken to her on the phone 4 days before the accident. She had rang me back that evening and left a message for me on my phone asking me to ring her back as she wanted to talk to me about something. I didnít hear the message until 2 days before the accident but I was very busy in work and busy at home so I didnít phone her back  :-\ ..how I wish now that I had done  :'(

    My mam is doing ok. She is still very upset but is doing well physically. I have her staying with me now every weekend so that I can look after her. My sister A and niece V look after her during the week.

    J is 2 years 6 months old today and he is doing great. Last night I was in the kitchen and P was playing with J in the sitting room and P came in to me and said ĎJ can count to 10í and I said I donít think he can but went in to see what she meant and then I heard J counting from 1 to 10 over and over. He kept leaving out number 8  :) I know he learned it from watching 'Little Baby Bum' (LBB) . He loves it and watches the same episodes over and over. He also knows loads of different colours and shapes. He even knows what a pentagon shape is and he shouts 'Pentagon' when he sees it on LBB. Very clever for his age  :)

    Ireland is in Level 5 Covid-19 lockdown at the moment and the schools are closed since they closed for Christmas break on 23rd December. Homeschooling started again on Monday. Please God the schools will be able to open again soon.

    P really misses L who is her best friend in school. I worry about R not being in school because he really needs the routine and the expertise of the teachers. During the last school closure from March to September he really regressed a lot socially and academically. His writing which had been going fine became terrible, so much so that his teacher suggested he get extra help with writing from an OT at the school. He had been getting extra help every day since the end of October and his writing was starting to improve but now I can see that he is already starting to regress again. I try my best to teach him writing skills but Im not a qualified OT and I find it very difficult to get R to listen to me when I am trying to teach him.
