Having a sister that has high care needs means that a lot of my time is taken helping Veronika….today I spent over 2 hours(over the day) sitting, helping Veronika drink from her cut out cup to try and get more fluid into her….this is along with the usual therapy we do each day, plus all the ‘usual things’ with being a mum.
For me it’s important to grab some time with Veronika’s brothers when I can….so tonight after dinner Jakob and I went out for a bike ride. I’m working on getting better at making time to do things with the boys, either individually or together….and this is one of my big personal goals for this year. Last year was incredibly tough with Veronika’s surgery and rehab, which meant Veronika and I were interstate for over 2 months, and when we were home it was incredibly difficult to get out.
