We share the elevator lobby with three other apartments and everyone else has put up cute little Chinese New Year decorations in their doorway. I didn’t want to be a poor sport and I really want to celebrate this year, so I went to our local bakery and looked at the goodies and decorations they had in stock.
It’s the year of the pig!
I’ve been a discouraged about Edda recently. She’s making progress at her own pace, but it’s very, very slow. So slow and so tedious. Things are just so hard for her – going up stairs, telling us that she wants something – I usually am OK with it all and I think how lucky we are that we are together, it’s just that when I’m feeling blue it just seems so bleak. I didn’t write about it when I was feeling really badly a few days ago, I do feel much better now.

Hey Doris! I can’t wait to decorate and hang out with all of you. I’ll see you in two days!! Love, EMY
Doris, just don’t get too discouraged. Smile and think about all the support coming from all people around you.
Just remember, Edda is making progress!! Stairs are a huge challenge, as is communicating…Stairs are one of Caitlyn’s main PT goals, and a year ago at 2 1/2 she couldn’t do it without holding two hands, and it was really sloppy…Now, she is expected to reach her goal of going up and down 4 stairs without assistants!
Hang in there and take the little progress..little and slow is better than not at all! 🙂
Emy! I can’t wait to see you too! I’m so glad that Jeremy could make this happen.
Dad, thanks for your support especially – it means the world to me. And it is so true, we are surrounded by people who love us. We are very lucky.
Rebecca – I know, you are so right! I am encouraged by the progress that Edda’s made. I am so proud of her. Slow and steady…
Of course, Mom and Dad are always behind Edda and you folks. After all, that is what “the parents are for”.
