I’m not even sure we could pack more in a day.
One of the therapists I had today was my therapist PT when I was 2 or 3! How’s that for neat!
I had two OT/PT sessions today. I fell asleep after the first one in the morning where they had me build a train (it wore me out in 30 minutes) and missed my speech session. My speech therapist quickly changed her appointment time to before OT/PT. She’s smart, AND she had me build a GEO Trax train track… one of my favorite sets. In my 2nd session of OT/PT, I found myself walking out of the room and down the hall… almost to my room. My vision is really bad so I couldn’t really see and my balance is still wacky so I was a little (okay, more than a little) unstable. But I made it.
Later in the day, Mom and I walked behind the wheelchair. I walked all the way out of my floor, to the elevator, and through the main part of the hospital. Sometimes I even didn’t hold onto the wheelchair. I really, really want to be independent!
I visited with our family friends (Miss Melissa and Mr. Chris and Baby L), my Nana and Poppy, O and B, and one of my teacher’s Miss A. Having so many people in my room at once really wears me out. It’s too much to take in, but I did it because I love them all so… plus Miss A brought me McDonald’s… YUM!
The worst part of the day was waiting for one of the doctors to removed that tube from my head. I waited 6 hours… SIX hours to get it out. I even had to get this numbing cream on my head twice!
And getting it out wasn’t painful, but the single stitch WAS! Even though I had two numbing creams on my head and had taken a heavy pain killer, it hurt so much I cried, and cried (actually screamed) and told Mom that I wanted to go home. But it was worth it, because I got to watch a Scooby Doo episode for doing such a good job and was finally able to wear this:
