Having a sick child is difficult. It drains you emotionally and financially. With countless days spent in the hospital and with so many different doctors, you're left with feelings of worry and helplessness. Since Jax's liver transplant and the complications that have come since, Jon and I have learned to take one day at a time; otherwise it can simply become too overwhelming on a family and often times destructive to it.
So instead, we try to focus on the joy in both of our children's accomplishments, appreciating their uniqueness, and taking pride in the special qualities they each possess. Jax's challenges have actually made us better people, made our marriage stronger, and given our children a unique perspective on life.
We are truly blessed and I am so proud of Jax, he is one of the most inspirational little guys I have ever known. I do believe that everything happens for a reason, and that everything does happen for the best. GAM ZU L'TOVAH!
Now onto the girls! There is a hypocritical, anti-"lean-in" drama flying about with a few of the girls and I don't understand it -- it's certainly a double standard and it's ridiculous.
I personally have not held onto any drama over Ramona and Sonja blowing off our Anniversary Party -- part in partial because it was perfect without them. I do care about these ladies but, their absence came down to etiquette, which the Countess can confirm, they showed little of. The day after my party Sonja sent me a text explaining the real reason she missed it; the Aviva excuse was just for show. Sonja had to be in France for something that had to do with assets and her divorce. And despite the fact that Ramona can be infuriating, and never came up with a good reason for missing the party, she did send me flowers with a note explaining that she just needed to be in the Hamptons that weekend. And something isn't right with Ramona -- I have a feeling other issues are pre-occupying her and her decisions, and it's not Aviva. And that is that.
