NEW NEWS

RIGHT NOW, I’M NOT DOING SPEECH THERAPY, BUT I DO A LOT OF VOCALIZING IN MUSIC THERAPY, & I STILL TRY 2 PRACTICE SPEECH DAILY–SOMETIMES W/THE VIDEO I MADE IN A THERAPY SESSION (IT’S ON MY COMP.), SOMETIMES W/THE COMPUTER PROGRAMS I HAVE, OFTEN JUST WHEN I CAN (LIKE I COUNT EXERCISES SOMETIMES), & OFTEN WHILE I WAIT 4 OTHER PEOPLE.

CERTAIN PEOPLE SEEM 2 “PULL IT OUT” OF ME–LIKE MY LITTLE 2 YEAR OLD NEPHEW VISITING FROM NYC–HE SHOWS ME STUFF, THEN WAITS 2 HEAR ME SAY SOMETHING LIKE, “OH WOW!” THEN HE GETS SOOO EXCITED!

I HAVE NEW WORDS “POPPING OUT” ALL THE TIME NOW! I CAN BE TOTALLY QUIET, THEN SUDDENLY SAY SOMETHING, AS SOME1 TALKS W/ME…BUT, UNFORTUNATELY, SOMETIMES I CAN’T SAY THEM AGAIN (LIKE A SECOND TIME) AS CLEARLY.

SUNDAY, I WAS SO EXCITED, BECAUSE I WAS DRIVING MY W/C IN THE CHURCH HALL, A TEEN GIRL ASKED A QUESTION (“WHAT CLASS ARE U GOING TO?”, I ANSWERED (“MIA-MAIDS”), & SHE UNDERSTOOD! I HAVE SAID “HI” AS I DROVE, BUT THIS WAS EXCITING BECAUSE SHE REALLY UNDERSTOOD (GRANTED, THE LETTER “M” IS ONE OF MY BEST CONSONANTS), & I DIDN’T HAVE TO STOP DRIVING, SO I COULD ANSWER HER!

ALSO ON SUN., I TOOK A STEP ON DRY LAND WITH MY RIGHT LEG—BUT MK HOLDS ME “JUST RIGHT” BECZ MY TORSO ISN’T VERY STRONG (I CAN IN A POOL, 4 SWIM THERAPY, BUT COULDN’T LIFT MY TOES, SO GRAVITY WON ON DRY LAND) MY LEFT LEG WANTED 2 WALK 2, BUT I COULDN’T MAKE MY KNEE BEND…

I ALSO GOT A NEW W/C THIS MONTH (I LOVE THE HEADLIGHTS, HORN, & TURN SIGNALS—GREAT, SINCE I CAN’T TALK! WELL YET) I NOW HAVE 5 W/C’S. SO, I NAMED MY 5 W/C’S (I’VE NEVER BEEN ONE 2 NAME INATIMATE OBJECTS, & DOUBT I’LL USE THE NAMES MUCH, BUT THE NAMES JUST “HAPPENED”):

1. FORD –THE NEW 1 (IT LOOKS LIKE A CAR)
2. BUCKING BRONCO –THE POWER TRAVEL CHAIR (WHICH CAN UNEXPECTEDLY JUMP 4WARD, WHEN U START)
3. LEMON-LIME –MY OLD, GREEN POWER CHAIR, THAT ALWAYS BROKE
4. BIG WHEEL –MY FOLDING MANUAL CHAIR, THAT I CAN MANUEVER (MY KIDS ARE IN IT, FOR THE “I WANNA BE LIKE U”) SCRAP. PG.)
5. DINA (SHORT 4 DINOSAUR) –MY 1ST, GREEN, MANUAL CHAIR
