Mikaslyn gets a New Walker

Today Tamara and Paula ,her adaptive equipment specialist and physical therapist respectively, came by with a new (to us) walker for Mikaslyn. It is much different than the old one and works much better. It is so responsive that if she turns it turns. She can also walk right up to objects and grab them. The walker does not get in her way and it really is a big improvement.

Pictures as soon as we get some.

Sledding on Fish Creek in the Lolo National Forest

We had a great time hiking in the Lolo forest.

This is near Fish Creek which is near Lolo Pass. We originally when to Fish Creek before Mikaslyn was bron looking huckleberries. Then last weekend we wanted to take a drive so we decided to see what it looked like in the winter. It turns out to be a snowmobile trail which is perfect for Mikaslyn's sled. So yesterday I modified it so that her seat will fit on the sled and today we gave it a try. The sled worked great.

CDC Christmas Party

I was finally able to get to scanning in the photographs taken at the CDC Christmas party this year. The one image that was not caught on film was Mikaslyn pulling Santa's beard. Oh it was cute. As you can see, she ended up with another Tigger.

Progress toward Speech

Linda, one of Mikaslyn's Hab-Aids, took her to the public library for story time. There was another non-verbal child there who walked up to Mikaslyn and started babbling to her. Mikaslyn mimicked one of the sounds the child made. This is a firrt and one of the important developmental steps toward speech.

Mandye Passed Away this Morning

I am very sad to report that Mandye our older lab passed away this morning. She was 13 and very old. She died of old age and we will miss her for a long time. She was a good, loyal and loving dog. She loved walks, swimming, chasing sticks and attention.
