Grocery Shopping

We went to Rachel's house yesterday and we took Ada to Kroger. Rachel was surprised to find out that all the handicap parking space were all full, so we have to park somewhere else. Ada was sitting nicely while I push her through the store and Rachel was filling up the cart. Ada seems happy and content and help out with transferring in and out of the car. We had fun.
Katherine came over to say hello and played with Ada. I think Ada loves to spend sometime with someone else beside me. She probably missed her daddy too. The house was so quiet.
I end up sleeping with Ada at night so I don't have to get up and walk to her bed. So when she starts waking up I just throw the blanket back at her and tell her to go back to sleep. It seems to work and we both fall back to sleep. Insomnia is normal for TBI patient among other things like headache, agitation and depression. It is easier just to put her on drug but I want to see if she can be without it.

Ponsawan and Ada,

I am coming to see you on 10/3 (my birthday) weekend. I can help with cleaning up the work room and eating that yummy chicken soup :)

Can't wait to experience fall in Indiana with you. Leaves just start to change color in NC and the peak of fall in the Great Smoky Mountains is still 3 weeks away.
