Wild Happenings

Wild weather! Really wild weather.

The day started out with rain. After about 10 the sun began to shine. A few hours later it began to POUR and hail and pour some more.

Makenzie and the boys where at school and I happened to be at Target when the fun began. The weather turned even worse fast! Then the tornado warnings began. Makenzie and the rest of the preschool ended up on the floor in the bathroom. The boys ended up in classrooms with no windows under desks with their heads covered. I had the pleasure of being held hostage at Target along with all of the other shoppers and employees, in the back of the store who knows how long! Oh the excitement!

Makenzie had a great day. She did wonderful in therapy doing a lot of weight bearing in sit. She was so loose and her therapist worked a ton on her neck and shoulders. She really enjoyed this and must have thought it felt good.

School went well.... in the bathroom...hehehehe. She also had a visitor from the Adaptive Tec team. They worked on switch access some more in the new chair the school PT ordered for her. After seeing her in this chair for the first time my original thoughts where confirmed....there is no way this chair is going to work. I think it will be good for a few things so it is not a total bust but for most of the activities Makenzie needs to use the chair for it will not work. So I will be telling the school district " I told you so" very soon! Oh the joys of advocating for your child!

Tonight the boys asked if Makenzie could stay up to eat dinner with us and of course I said yes! I made her a bowl of avocados and we sat down....again...together as a whole family! Such a wonderful feeling that is!

Makenzie ate and ate and ate and ate! WOW! The coolest thing is that she is closing her lips with most every bite. She has not had any type of lip closure....other then her pouty face..... since her accident. This is HUGE!!

Then she pleaded with me for some of my soda. I gave her a sip on her spoon. I then decided to try the sippy cup but she didn't really go for that so I tried it in a bottle. At first she looked a little confused but then she did something I was not expecting at all.... she wrapped her lips around the nipple and sucked on it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She scared herself silly when the soda ended up in her mouth but did a great job of swallowing it. WOW!!!!!! Really....that left me speechless! I am so excited!

So again we had an exciting but wonderful day! I am going to close out this day with a new episode of private practice and a glass of wine! Keep Praying! God is listening!

Believe... Prayer Works!!!
