Holli has been quieter this week but she is still smiling and laughing appropriately. I am not sure if she is quieter because we are trying to wean her off some of her medications or that it is just a mood that she is in at this time. The weather has been gloomy, rainy and cold the past several days. I know that effects my mood! Today it feels like winter outside not getting out of the 40's. I will be glad when it warms back up next week and we are able to go outside. One thing this week that Holli did in speech therapy that I have not seen her do is when Kelly, the speech therapist, put a toothette in her mouth then told Holli to pull it out. Holli reached up with her left hand an pulled it out of her mouth. We are not sure if she is having some dental problems but she is set up to see the dentist in the mobile unit on the 26th. I hope if it is a problem with her teeth that he can fix the problem and then hopefully she will open her mouth so we can do proper mouth care. On Monday while she was watching Ellen on tv, there was someone riding a bicycle on the show. Karen, her step-mom, said Holli perked up, started smiling and then moved her legs like she was riding a bike! Of course it was mostly her left leg but she was trying to move her right also. I am sure she misses riding her bike. I want to thank the DPW gang for the present they sent Holli. We got it in the mail yesterday and I brought it out with me this morning. She was very intent looking at all the signatures on the plagues. I am sure it means alot to her to be remembered by her friends. I showed her pictures on facebook of her friends and family that I am linked with and she really enjoys looking at all the pictures. Keep on posting pics so I can show them to her. Hope everyone has a great weekend. I will post again next week. Diane
