Pass Two Sections by May: Any Advice?

This past week has been kind of a blur. After failing AUD again, I cried and let my husband spoil me for a few days, luckily my stepdaughter was with us for Spring Break and just having her around made me happy.
I came to work on Saturday despite not feeling well, and Sunday I could barely get out of bed. I tried to study, but it just wasn’t happening, so I was asleep most of the day and taking medicine. Monday morning came around, and I still felt horrible; I hated to call in sick this time of year, but I knew I would be of no use at the office.
So, there were two whole days of no work, yet NO studying.
I’m feeling better now, but I can also tell that April is flying by. I’m questioning whether I made the right decision in scheduling REG on 4/27. I have found it extremely difficult to study after a 12 hour workday, and it’ only going to get worse until the 18th.
My best friend’s bachelorette party is this weekend, so Saturday I won’t be studying and Sunday I’ll have to come in to work. I’m getting very frustrated.
This morning I was complaining to a co-worker and he looked at me and asked, “Do you really think you’re going to pass both sections this window?” (I would need to pass both REG & AUD in order not to lose another credit). Now I’m asking myself this same question, can I do it? I don’t know.
Should I really try and battle this out, taking two exams by 5/30?
By the way, I’ve switched to Roger CPA Review.
I’m stumped; I’m wondering what somebody else in my shoes would do? I know that until after the 18th, I will be working a lot- no way around that. After the 18th, I can definitely work less hours, I haven’ run this past my boss yet but I was thinking of maybe even working part time. Despite that, does that leave enough time to study AND pass 2 exams?
