Delisha’s Trip - Day 7, 8, & 9 (Weekend)
Ariel and I took Delisha to Target because, well, it’s Target. She now has sunglasses, a hat, clothes & shoes that fit perfect, and headbands. She always has a particular preferences in what she’s going to wear, so it’s fun to see what she picks out and what she considers is a resolute “No!”
We also got an array of fun therapy items to help with mouth strengthening. Since her scars had pulled her cheek/mouth, now that they’re removed we’re building up mouth muscles so she can eat more efficiently and annunciate. Already, there is major improvement, as seen by blowing kisses and saying “The doctor said, no more monkeys jumping on the bed!” which is her portion of reading when we go through the 10 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed story (which is her favorite).
Sunday we fed baby deer and met other farm animals. Delisha was totally unfazed by a giant life-size stuffed bear (that seemed kind of freaky to me), but got a little overwhelmed with the super friendly donkey (although she did still giggle and say “heehaw” to it).
Week one is over, but we still have three more to heal, learn, grow, and experience.
