I am not an army wife, but I am in a similar situation with my children. I am asking this question to any army wife that has or has had a deployed husband and small kids at home.
I currently spend weeks months away from home in the hospital with my son, who is battling cancer. I am wondering what type of things you do to help your other children cope. My kids are 6, 5 and 2 and my son in the hospital is also two ( a twin to the 2 year old at home. ) They are having a really hard time, Currently I have been in the hospital since early march with my son which is quite far away, my son is in the icu and they are not able to visit. I just start to see it really affecting them, my husband said my six year old woke up crying for me multiple times and my five year old has started chewing on things terribly, I am not joking and I think that ithas to do with stress from this situation not to mention that the twin is also.
