We are less than a month away before we move from our home. Jenny seems to still be excited about the move. I think there are too many memories in this house. Everything either reminds her of what she use to be able to do, or of where she collapsed in the kitchen with her stroke. We are in the process of selling our home and extra van, as well as packing. Overall, we are doing really well.
Jenny has made some marked improvements with her speech. Finally! Again, I would not know what a speedily recovery looked like, but her ability to produce voluntary sound is noticable and she has told me things such as, “I love you”, “Mark” and “hi”, which are things she practices in speech therapy. Perhaps this is why I understand them. Overall, most people would not recognize the sounds she makes, but the big news is that she can make sounds- which was not possible before. She was able to say “Bob” this week, so now her little brother can feel special.
