Uh and Ah

Only if you could be in bed with me and Ada at night, you would be able to hear the sound Uh and Ah in the dark. It is my little girl, who just turn to me, pads me on the shoulder and let me know that she is awake. Then she giggles happily, just little girl who discovers something cool she can do. So I just Uh and Ah along with her till she goes back to sleep.
She is also be able to tell us more that she needs to go to the girl's room or need to be changed. She is able to open her left hand more and more to give us Hi-5. She gives us a kiss when asked. Is that counted as"Following command"?
I also found healthy soup in a box that I've been given to her in the evening. The same soup that cost $5 at Meijer, only cost $2.50 at Trader Joe. I could have cooked for her but I think the soup is good enough. She also eats some Freeze dried Strawberry that I added to the Cheerios. Only it cost $5.89 per bag at the health Food Store, so she can eat the whole bag in one day.
Ada will have her surgery on her teeth next Wednesday. I am quite nervous, since I don't have any idea of how to take care of her after surgery. They can keep her 23 hours at the hospital as outpatient.
The weather has not been nice, rain and cold kept us inside. Lately, Ada likes to take a long nap. Sometime she naps for 2-3 hours. Good for her, but not good for me. because I have to lay down next to her and she will put her legs on my legs. All I have to say is, it is like having baby Ada all over again. And I love it.

Hi Ponsawani,

Thank you for sharing your feeling of daily life with Ada. As I read your experiences with her as a mother, I am the one that says Uh and Ah! in admiration to you as a mother. You are an inspiration to me. Thank you for being my friend all these years.

I am sure the surgery will go well and the new nurse will help you and assist you in how to take care of her afterwards. Ada has gone through worse pains since her accident,so she will be OK with this one. It will be painful, but she will be alright and you know is temporary!

So nice to know she is "following commands" more and more!!!! Go Ada! Her improvements are amazing! I am glad you are enjoying who Ada is now. Quite different --and yet--her same essence, smiling to the world!!!

I hope the weather improves so that when we come to visit we can go outside! I can't wait to see you guys.

Love, F&M

Your ending means everything to me. It confirms all the love one has for the other being despite the difficulties and challeges.

God blesses you Ponsawan. You inspire me so much.
