- decided to have a Welcome Home get together on Sunday. Feel free to drop by between 3 and 5. No gifts necessary, we'd just like to see our friends.
Things we did today
- sat in the dealership for almost 1.5 hours so the rear gate latch could be fixed and I can get the double stroller out. Had a great conversation with a mom whose husband was adopted and watched 2 children trying to beat each other to different play stations.
- went to our upper cervical Dr, and we all feel much better now.
- realized I don't have any idea where my passport and Hannah's are. The holder also has a CC and my driver's license in it.
- got whipped with Hannah's hair one more time, which encouraged my previous decision to cut her hair. It is in her face, even when I pull it back, because it's so thick and heavy, and she wasn't able to push it out of her face. It just won't stay pulled back. It ends up in her food if she turns her head while she's eating. It's too hot in OK to have long thick hair. So, I sat her in the chair (after Caleb hopped up first and had an adjustment on his previous cut) and cut about 5 inches off. She did not sit still, but all in all, I think it turned out great. It's so much lighter now!
I know this is going to sound far fetched to some, but I'll share it in the hopes that someone will find help from it. Hannah will be mortified one day that her bowel habits were broadcast over the internet, but oh well. 4 days the first time she went for me in the US, then 2, then 2. Prune juice, cleansing tea. Nothing resulted that you would imagine for that length of time. However, she saw Dr Ray today and, I kid you not, we were maybe 10 miles down the road and she said she had to go. Another thing is that her hands were always cool. Not after the adjustment. She wasn't able to raise her arms much above shoulder lenth without great effort, but it appears much easier. She couldn't give you high fives because she couldn't manipulate her arms and wrists to do that. She did it tonight before we put her to bed. I'm thrilled. Knowing the limits she's had all her life, any new freedom in ability is a huge thing for her. Looking forward to getting our therapy appointments started and continued freedoms for our sweet girl.
