Life may normally look bright and cheery on the Instagram feed of Little People, Big World stars Audrey and Jeremy Roloff. But this week has been anything but normal for the reality stars.

“I thought I’d have more cute family Christmas photos filling my camera roll by now, but instead I have this photo,” Audrey wrote on Thursday (Dec. 19) alongside a pic of her holding her ailing daughter Ember Jean. “Holding a sick baby at 4 a.m. in the emergency room.”

Behind the scenes of our reality lately… I thought I’d have more cute family Christmas photos🎄 filling my camera roll by now, but instead I have this photo… Holding a sick baby at 4 a.m. in the emergency room😔 Last week Ember came down with her first bad tummy bug and it was a solid 4 or 5 days of “owie tummy,” fever and vommiting… she started to feel better for a couple days, but then started saying “owie” when she went to the bathroom… and then at night spiked a high fever so I was concerned about a UTI. We walked in to the ER at 11 p.m. and didn’t get discharged till 5 a.m. 🙈 Sitting on that miserable chair all night, while 37 weeks pregnant, just to wait for a urine sample and a nose swab.. I do not understand the ER🤦🏼‍♀️ Welp, turns out she has RSV🙈 on top of everything else she’s been through the last week. Was up all night again last night with a horrible cough and fever😢 In between comforting her, the pressure of a book manuscript that’s already past deadline🤪, all the year-end stuff when you run your own business/shop, Christmas commitments, the final weeks of pregnancy aches/emotions, and just feeling nervous for labor… I’m at the end of an already frayed rope. So if your week doesn’t look as dreamy and perfect as the Christmasy photos you’re seeing on Instagram right now, you’re not alone.🙋🏼‍♀️ I’m giving myself permission to have unwrapped gifts under the tree, unresponded to e-mails/texts, stay in my pajamas, let the laundry baskets overflow, put on another episode of Daniel Tiger for Ember, and order take out for the 4th time this week. 🥡Maybe you need to extend extra grace to yourself this week too. I give you permission.

Audrey went on to say that on Tuesday (Dec. 17,) the family ‘walked in to the ER at 11 p.m. and didn’t get discharged till 5 a.m. Sitting on that miserable chair all night, while 37 weeks pregnant, just to wait for a urine sample and a nose swab. I do not understand the ER. Welp, turns out she has RSV on top of everything else she’s been through the last week.”

It’s a sad reality for the family, who has had much on their plate health wise as of late. Not only is Audrey due to have their second child very soon, but Jeremy himself was hospitalized last month for hernia surgery.

And while these trials and tribulations are enough to get anyone down, Audrey remains positive.

“So if your week doesn’t look as dreamy and perfect as the Christmassy photos you’re seeing on Instagram right now, you’re not alone,” she wrote. “I’m giving myself permission to have unwrapped gifts under the tree, unresponded to e-mails/texts, stay in my pajamas, let the laundry baskets overflow, put on another episode of Daniel Tiger for Ember, and order take out for the 4th time this week. Maybe you need to extend extra grace to yourself this week too. I give you permission.”
