wed.

IT HAS BEEN AGES SINCE I’VE POSTED! IT DIDN’T HELP THAT MY COMP. WAS BEING REPAIRED 4 OVER A WEEK! LOL

SINCE I WANTED 2 TYPE THIS 4 A JOURNAL, & MAYBE 4 A SCRAPBOOK PAGE (THAT I STARTED ALMOST A YEAR AGO ), I THOUGHT IT COULD ALSO SERVE AS A BLOG ENTRY:

APRIL 25, 2910
JESS WANTED HER SUNDAY BREAKFAST “LIKE MOM.” FIA WILLINGLY PLAYED CARA, HER CAREGIVER. JESS SAT IN MOM’S MANUAL W/C W/HER EGGS IN FRONT OF HER, WAITING AS FIA GOT HER A PAPER TOWEL BIB. THEN CAME MOM’S FAVORITE PART: FIA TOOK A BITE 1ST, & JESS REACTED W/A LOUD, “HEY!” (EDITOR’S NOTE:
MK & CARA NEVER DO THIS, UNLESS MOM NEEDS 2 WAIT 4 HER FOOD 2 COOL, & EVEN THEN, MK GIVES HER A DRINK OR BREAD. KEEP IN MIND THAT MOM’S FED BY MANY PEOPLE, THOUGH MOST R SENSATIVE 2 THIS.) IT DIDN’T TAKE LONG 4 JESS 2 GET FED UP WAITING, & DECIDE 2 FEED HERSELF! WHAT FOLLOWED WAS GREAT FUN 2. JESS WOULD PURPOSELY DROP FOOD, & FIA REQUESTED THAT WHEN SHE DRANK, SHE NEEDED 2 MIMIC MOM COMPLETELY…EVEN DROOL/SPIT AS SHE DRANK! IT WAS A “YOU HAD TO BE THERE” MOMENT, BUT IT WAS PRICELESS!

THEN AT CHURCH, MY ALMOST 5 MO. OLD NEICE, ELIZABETH, WAS BEING WATCHED BY MY DAD & I, AS WE WERE A ROW BEHIND HER. I KNOW THAT SINCE I CAN’T LEAVE, I NEED 2 QUICKLY REACT 2 ANY SIGNS OF STRESS, B4 IT’S A CRY…

SO, IF SHE SEEMED AT ALL STRESSED, I USED MY RIGHT HAND ON HER BENCH, 2 HELP PULL ME FWD, SO I COULD GIVE HER HER PACIFIER. BUT EVERYTIME I TRIED, SHE’D C ME & SMILE. W/MY PBA, I’DHAVE FITS OF LAUGHTER, SO MY DAD WOULD GIVE HER THE PACIFIER.

EVEN NOW, THINKING ABOUT IT, I LAUGH! I C IT FROM ELIZABETH;S PERSPECTIVE…& THIS BIG FACE WOULD SUDDENLY APPEAR! I’M SURE SHE WAS JUST HAPPY 2 C A FACE, EVEN IF I WAS JUST PLAYING “PEEK-A-BOO!” IT WAS FUNNY, THOUGH!

MON. MORN., I WAS ESTATIC ABOUT WHAT I DID WITH 1 HAND THEN. IT’S NOTHING BIG REALLY, BUT FOR 1 WHO CAN BARELY MOVE, IT WAS EXCITING!

MONDAY WAS A GOOD DAY–I WAS MORE VERBAL & STRONG, SO I PUSHED UP W/MY 1 GOOD (RIGHT) HAND ON THE ARMREST OF MY W/C, & ON MY RIGHT FOOT PEDAL JUST ENOUGH 2 MOVE MY OWN BUTT! I CONFESS THAT I STARTED DOING THAT ON OCCASION ON MY OWN, THOUGH I CAN’T ALWAYS DO IT, & IF I DO, IT’S IN THE PRIVACY OF MY HOME ELEVATOR, BECUZ IF MY LEFT LEG TRIES 2 STRAIGHTEN & STRAY FROM MY FOOTREST, IT’S STOPPED B4 IT CAN START, BY A WALL OF THE ELEVATOR.

ANYWAY, I VELCRO MY LEFT ARM, BECUZ IT’S VERY DISOBEDIENT, ANNOYING, & DOESN’T LISTEN 2 ME (LOL), SO EVERY LAUGH, CRY, SNEEZE, ETC. MAKES MY LEFT ARM SWING INTO MY BELLY, OR COMPLETELY OFF THE ARMREST. AS I MOVED MY BUTT ON MON., MY LEFT ARM HYPER-EXTENDED, & POPPED OFF MY VELCRO. WITH 1 HAND, I MANAGED 2 RE-WRAP IT AROUND MY HAND, & RE-FASTEN IT. NOT LIKE I HAVEN’T DONE THAT EITHER IN THE LAST 6 YRS., BUT IT’S HIT & MISS IF I CAN, & ALWAYS TOUGH! MONDAY IT WAS EASY & FAST! I’M JUST ENJOYING MY NEW-FOUND INDEPENDENCE LATELY! I FEEL I OWE GOD A BIG THANKS 4 MY RECENT SPURT OF INDEPEDENCE!
