Physical therapy is not fun. It’s hard work — tearful, painful work. Namine is a hard worker, but even she has her limits, so Jessica and I do what we can to make it enjoyable.
The dark underbelly of the special needs community is the dislike of the label of “special needs” itself. That, combined with the fact that many able-bodied people are writing and speaking for disabled people (both by professionals and caregivers), can be a recipe for disaster.
Losing the Affordable Care Act would be devastating. Without it, my daughter would most likely be dead.
For Christmas, Namine received a little microphone and stand. The stand was perfect for us to use in a little homemade physical therapy.
Namine told me about a decision she made about her upcoming recital.
When Jessica and I were collecting pictures for our talk at Marquette, we had the opportunity to compare a picture of Namine standing in the bathroom with pretty much the same thing from back in 2014.
After being out for a few weeks, Namine enjoyed coming back to basketball practice.
