B-DAY

MY B-DAY WAS 8/8 & I GOT MY COMP. RUNNING FINALLY, 3 FRIENDS CAME BY, DINNER WAS AT OLIVE GARDEN, & MARK & THE KIDS MADE, FOR MY CALE, MY FAV. DESERT WHICH IS AT CHILI’S. I ALSO OPENED MY GIFTS, MY KIDS WERE SO EXCITED, U WOULD HAVE THOUGHT IT WAS THEIR DAY! BUT FIA WAS THE ONLY KID TO TELL ME HAPPY B-DAY. WHEN FRIENDS CAME BY, NOT ONLY COULD I SIGN A LITTLE TO THEM FOR THE 1ST TIME, BUT W/LITTLE HELP, I COULD OPEN CARDS & GIFTS! LAST YEAR I WAS TOLD MY B-DAY THIS YEAR WOULD BE SO MUCH BETER. I EXPECTED TO BE ABLE, AT LEAST, TO BLOW OUT MY OWN CANDLES! TO MY DISMAY, I CAN’T! I CAN’T DO LOTS OF STUFF, BUT I CAN SIGN & HAVE A MOTORIZED WHEELCHAIR NOW SO I CAN SEE WHAT I WANT TO SEE!

MARK HAS GOTTEN VERY CREATIVE SO HE CAN LEAVE ME HOME ALONE, WHICH I APPRECIATE! HE LEAVES ME W/A PHONE, WHICH I CALL IF I NEED HELP & USING AUTO. DIAL, SPEAKERPHONE & A SERIES OF BEEPS TO ANSWER HIM, I CAN SAY WHAT I NEED! THE OTHER DAY AUTO. DIAL WOULDN’T WORK, SO I ACTUALLY DIALED THE PHONE! & MARK HAS DISCOVERED THAT IF HE HELD MY WRIST, I CAN PLAY W/ALL 5 FINGERS.

ZACH TAKES PRIDE IN BEING THE ONLY KID WHO CAN FINGERSPELL & UNDERSTAND MOM! I APPRECIATE HE DOES IT & HAVE HIM TURN OFF MY COMP. WHEN IT FREEZES!

  3. Jenny,

    Your computer freezes? Was it the MAC? ūüôā

    I hope that all that piano playing has helped to create some dexterity in Zach’s fingers so that he can sign to you!
