Today marks one month since Jenny’s stroke. March 16th was actually 8 years to the day from when we moved to Indiana. I feel like the last month has been a blur. I can’t imagine what Jenny feels. She continued practising with her communication device today now that she has dedicated glasses to mount her motion detector to. She appears to be doing better with the system and I made some changes to the format to better suit her needs. I added some fun phrases as well.
I began her candy therapy today. The speech therapist said I could help stimulate mouth movements by using Pixy Stix and Dum Dums in small/controlled quantities. Jenny appeared to like it.
She dislikes the boots she wears that keep her feet from pointing. She hates the suctioning of her trache that makes her appear to convulse. It must get bad because she will ask to be suctioned.
I would have to say that Jenny is doing better than expected for just being one month. I credit the prayers in her behalf and her strong will. Thank you all for your love and prayers.
