A really well thought out comment. Very polite, really. But a comment nonetheless where a reader was "hurt" (ouch) when she read a specific something that I wrote. She found it "disrespectful" (also, ouch). On a post from almost two years ago, but still. I don't want to hurt my reader's feelers, even if I believe in the words I type. It just doesn't settle very well.
(Of course my fighting spirit rises up and I want to shoot back - "you will never, ever understand extreme prematurity unless you've been there!" But that is for another day).
So ironic that I would get that comment. Needless to say, I am still ironing out that delicate balance in my mind. What to share. How to share it. I know I won't please everyone. This blog is and always has been about micro preemie life.
But of course as fate would have it, I get the well thought out, disagreeing comment, the second after I publish such a thing! There is only one thing that will remedy this situation.
Cute Jack pictures.
And then these.
No more words needed.
