It was so good to have rain overnight and early this morning. The farmers certainly need it for their crops and it helped cool things off for a bit (although as soon as the sun came out, the heat was back). Poor Maia, the bus got here this morning and we were getting her settled on the wheelchair lift when I realized that I was holding the umbrella over my head, but not hers. Fortunately, it was just sprinkling and also... her hair isn't going to be affected by a bit of rain - lol!
When the bus stopped in front of our house to drop her off after school, there was a smile on her face when the door opened and she could see me. What a sweet moment that was! To have that bit of recognition and happiness touched my heart.
Matthew had a busy and fun day, too! He had speech therapy this morning and participated well for most of the time. The therapist had a medical resident shadowing her for the day and this doctor had taken care of Maia in the ICU so she was eager to hear how our girl is doing.
After lunch, my friend Del took Matthew swimming while I brought Maia to therapy. Matthew had a wonderful time and again, it was nice for him to enjoy an activity that would be more difficult to bring Maia to. Maia's therapy appt. went well. One of the exercises was walking with a rolling walker and Maia actually held on to it with her left hand for a fair distance by herself. Although it's a baby step, it's still progress.
Maia sees the Neurologist tomorrow afternoon. I'm making my list of questions... some very direct ones. Not sure if I will get any answers, but I have to ask. I know that it doesn't change where we are at now, but I don't think that I am asking anything unreasonable.
We're seeing a bit of regression in some of Matthew's behavior right now. Trying to figure out if this is just related to Maia or if something else is going on. If it crosses your mind, please pray for him.
And that's all that's happening around here!
