Our family has been ill with a cold of sort that just drains your energy, so we have been recoverying for the past week. Jenny’s mom was great and came at this time to help pack Jenny’s “sacred” scrapbooking supplies. Only the mother of such a woman like Jenny could comprehend what was needed to organize and separate supplies. 20-plus boxes later, it was complete. She was also great to have around so we could get a little rest.
Jenny conitinues to demonstrate the ability to do a little bit more than she was once capable of doing. They are small, but measurable marks like being able to reach her face with a washcloth, or reach the window cotrol in the car. These were once impossible tasks a few weeks ago. Speech is an area which is most frustrating. It seems that the more we do to work on speech, the less we get. Jenny does psych herself out most times she tries, but will say simple words, without thinking, on occassion. We keep trying.
