March 11

Well the last several weeks have challenging to say the least. All the dreary weather and no sunshine was really starting to wear me down. If that weren't enough, my ability to talk has really taken a turn for the worst. When you lose your ability to communicate it gets very frustrating. Oh the things we take for granted. This has probably been the hardest thing to deal with so far.
This week has been much better. I had a birthday and all the cards and facebook greetings really lifted my spirits. God even gave me sunshine on my birthday! My Mom came to see me and sang a few songs for me. I could feel her love for me. Thank you Mom.
Yesterday I had my regular clinic visit at Hershey and I had a pleasant surprise with my breathing function. Last visit it was 65%, this time it was at 83%. Other recommendations consisted making some modifications to my wheelchair to make it more comfortable.
I am still waiting for authorization from the insurance for my eyegaze speaking device.
I have much to be thankful for and I put my life in God's hands. Thanks everyone for your love, prayers and support.
