My theory of Jenny doing better when family and friends are around was reconfirmed as Missy and Dustin have been here for the past few days. It helps that fresh faces bring fresh ideas. Missy and Jenny shopped together all day yesterday and brought back too much stuff. They bought some games that Jenny could possibly play. One was a Mancalla game with the oval shaped marble peices. Jenny beat me 4 straight games (doing all movements on her own) and even corrected an error that I made (she called it cheating, but I called it a mistake). I quit so she could beat Missy and Zach just as bad. Not bad for a woman with hazy vision. She spelled out that it felt good to be able to interact with everyone like a “real person” and not just an observer. I feel she will quickly be able to interact more in no time. Jenny demonstrated great leg lifting on her right leg and continues to strengthen her right shoulder.

  4. HI JENNY,
    WE ARE PULLING FOR YOU. YOUR MOM JUST TOLD ME YOU WERE PLAYING GAMES AND BEAT EVERYBODY. I’M NOT SURE OF THE NAME OF THE GAME BUT YOUR MOM SAID YOU SURE HAD FUN PLAYING IT. ALSO, THE PJ’S YOU BOUGHT FOR ZACK. THAT IS AN ADORABLE STORY. I AM SO SORRY I DIDN’T KNOW YOU WERE GOING TO COME UP FOR MIKE’S PLAY. I WOULD HAVE MADE SURE I WAS THERE THAT NIGHT. IT DOESN’T SEEM THAT LONG AGO THAT CLAY AND I WERE THERE TO WATCH YOU IN YOUR MUSICAL DEBUTE. WHEN YOUR THROAT HEALS AND YOU CAN GET SOME GOOD BREATHS PERHAPS WE WILL SING TOGETHER AGAIN. I HAVE A FUN ACTIVITY CHRISTMAS CARD TO SEND YOU BUT DON’T KNOW HOW TO SEND IT TO YOU. MAYBE MARK CAN SEND ME YOUR DIRECT E-MAIL ADDRESS AND I CAN GET IT TO YOU. I KNOW THE KIDS WILL GET A KICK OUT OF THE CARD TOO.
    EVEN IF YOU CAN’T SING OUTLOUD RIGHT NOW, KEEP SINGING IN YOUR MIND AND IN YOUR HEART. WE’LL WORK TOGETHER AND KEEP MUSIC GOING.
    WITH MY LOVE FOR A MERRY CHRISTMAS WITH YOUR FAMILY,
    RUTH WAITE
    MARK, PLEASE SEND ME THE E-MAIL ADDRESS SO I CAN GET THAT ANTIMATED CARD TO YOU.
