I just wanted to say thanks for the warm response to my post about PKU. We have received so much love and support! I didn't mean to be such a downer, but it was important to me to be honest and real about my process in dealing with this news. Now that PKU is going to be part of our lives, I wanted to get it out there because I'm sure it will come up here again in the future.
I feel a little selfish for having felt the way I did about it because I know there are so many out there who struggle with things which, in comparison, are probably much more difficult. But the reality is, this really sucked for us and has been difficult in it's own right. At the same time I already feel this experience has strengthened our marriage and made our family stronger. It has also led me to have more faith and to look to God for strength when we had none. I'm now even more grateful for God's plan and purpose for us in this life and I believe that my broken heart was mended through a lot of tearful prayers.
