When it rains, it pours!

So, Cate had her 9 month well child check last week, and she only gained 3 ounces in 3 months. That's not good. She fell to just below the 5th percentile on the growth chart. Again, not good. Her head fell from 75% to 25%. And, to top it all off, her pediatrician thinks she is delayed in her motor skills and recommended that she start physical therapy. Jeremiah and I thought she was doing well - she is light years ahead of where Will was at this age. Apparently that's not good enough. Now we're trying to find a physical therapist for her. The state's early intervention services suck. They were totally worthless with Will, and if we hadn't gotten him private therapies, I'm convinced he'd still be sitting like a lump on the floor with no communication skills at all. Anyway, the point is, I was expecting a great report and got the opposite. Please pray that Cate will grow and be healthy. Pray that whatever is causing her not to properly process the tons of food she eats each day will go away. Work is also totally stressing me out right now. I'm really trying to do my best, but a coworker keeps making mistakes that I get blamed for. Pray that this situation will be resolved with my bosses knowing that I'm doing my job. Pray for patience, because I really really need it right now. I also need strength and encouragement to deal with all of this. So, I guess pray for that too. Cate goes back for a weight check in about 5 weeks. Hopefully she will have gained good weight. More updates to come.
