Hippi, you say you're overwhelmed. I'd be paralized! I remember how exhausted I was at your age with young children, and I was healthy. It sounds like between your ideas and advice you've gotten here you'll get through it.
You know, Hippi, I'll bet if you didn't have health problems and someone you vaguely knew did, and she called you asking for help, you'd be more than happy to pitch in. There was a mom on my daughter's baseball team a few years ago, who had parkinson's and we all helped her whenever we could or whenever she called. You might be pleasantly surprised.
As good a mom as you are, I'm sure your kids can help out too. I know your daughter is young, and Josh has a lot of pain, but they can pitch in too.
I'll be thinking of you and am anxious for your hubby to get back and give you a break.
