Trying to balance the needs of Katya versus the needs of the rest of our kids is always a challenge. When questioned about that recently, I answered truthfully that I think we work hard at that, and do actually pretty well, given the challenges we face.
I still stand by that. We DO work hard and we DO well at trying to provide for the needs of all our children. But it's a fine balancing act. And sometimes we tip more one direction than is good. And that causes trouble, no matter which direction we over-balance in.
This weekend it seems we have "over balanced" trying to meet the needs of the rest of the family. This is not good for Katya. And then that means it's not good for the rest of us. 'Cause if Katya ain't happy, no body is happy!
We are sitting here feeling very wrung out . . . and not sure how much of what is currently going on with Katya is stress related (my Mommy gut says it IS) or how much is strictly physical.
If anyone feels up to saying a few extra prayers for Katya and our family, we would appreciate it, deeply.
