Jenny has definately changed from constant crying/emotional outbursts to laughing fits. Both are typical effects of her stroke, but the laughing is so much more enjoyable. Jenny is getting stronger in her trunk and neck. I sat her in a rocker and a glider chair and she sat so well. I moved the glider down to the main floor so she could use it more. She also is able to sit and support her trunk and neck for several seconds if not more. Jenny is working so hard that by evening time she is truely wiped out. The physical therapist took her wheel chair leg supports off and Jenny began swinging her right leg from side to side with quite a bit of force. It appears that Jenny discovered this movement and had been waiting for a chance to show it off, She can also lift her knees a little, when helped. She pretty much can move anything with a little help.
I took Jenny on a date to see Harry Potter in the theatres. I was well prepared, but a few obstacles popped up. This was one of the first times we went out where we were totally by ourselves. I had to use the restroom, but realized I did not know what to do with Jenny. I could not take her with me, and I did not want to leave her in the hall alone. Aside from waiting to use the bathroom until I was home, it was a great date. I was greatly aware of how accessible buildings were due to my social work background and having a double stroller for all these many years. It is just a bit more difficult because Jenny and I had each other to hold doors and help over curbs.
