Thanks!! I am sure it will take a while to start

This morning though I was going to get him all ready for school and let my dh sleep in

but I woke up to that he for sure he needed a bath 

and had to wake up husband who just got home late from work

I am unable to give him a bath or shower by myself due to his extensive needs

When he gets out of the shower I will get him ready for the morning for school 

and I have to make his bed-put clean sheets on it

Oh my it was quite the mess this morning-poor fellow-

He has severe gastrological issues and he has cerebral palsy and is non-verbal and in a wheelchair

he weighs more than me

Quoting armywife009:

Good luck! :)

Do you not get help already? How long have you gone without help?

Oh man Mama, you have your hands full, no wonder you need help. Sounds like it's a lot on you and your dh. I hope you two can find a wonderful caregiver!

Wow, that's not a lot at all. Hopefully you can get more funding and tack on at least a few more hours a week.

We get help- 15 hours a week right now- that is 2 early mornings and 2 early evenings right now but ran out of funding to get any more help- to pay out of pocket is 22 dollars an hour and I only make a little above minimum wage and my husband does not make that much couple bucks an above minimum wage-so we can not pay out of pocket
