We just submitted a letter of thanks to our local newspaper theuniondemocrat.com. for that glorious benefit we had for our daughter. Glenn and I are still very humbled by all the hard work and efforts of our loved one’s. It’s going to be hard to get over. Nicole has a very strenuous schedule these days: 7 therapys per day that last 45mins to 1 hr each. Eats her own 3 meals that take about 30mins each, as well as a shower and rest each day. That doesn’t leave a lot of time for anything else. Her short term memory will still take time to recover. Her long term (prior to the accident) spot on..always has been. She is coming out here and there with her own thoughts: I was video taping her eating soup because she was very smooth and nothing was falling out of the spoon, she was staring at me while each spoonful found its way into her mouth. After the 4th or 5th spoonful, her eyebrows frowned and a disgusting look came over her face while she floped the spoon down “Why are you video taping me?” she asked. She thought that was pretty stupid of me, cool huh? She also said once when she was doing something that she was “Too tired to do the rest of this” I asked her if she wanted me to do the rest for her “Yes.” So these thoughts of her own that she is now coming up with, processing, then saying…yeah, again like hearing the angels sing! They are weaning her a bit this week into her own independance: So far, they have had someone at Nicole’s side 24/7 to aid and help her in any way. After practicing for the last couple of weeks, there will be someone sitting outside of her door, not inside her room and when Nicole wants something, or help, etc, she is to press the “Call button” then say to them what it is she is wanting. The person at the door will still watch her every move for safety though. As of today, Nicole has a new honey brown hair color, thanks to her dad buying it for her at Walgreens! Oh, yeah, also thanks to him and his tireless efforts, Nicole can walk ! Yep…all by herself !! Thanks Glenn, you are my hero and I love you, your proud wife, Bon. Please keep your prayers comin’….they are workin’ :) :)
