We had gone in there to get her a communication switch she can take back and forth to school and we wanted to get her a nice one. We got a really good deal on this one:Details here
We also got 3 talking picture switches to hang in the living room so she can tell us when she is thirsty,hungry or needs to potty. I may end up getting more of these. Details here
Then there was this one. WOW! No we didn't buy it. I only wish. It is a HP touchsmart. It's a touchscreen computer. The lady mentioned trying it a couple of times while we were trying the other stuff and I finally gave in because she told me I may be surprised. She put in a cd that would give Abby choices on the screen. She did first words and verbs. SHE WAS AMAZING! I almost wanted to tell the lady to stop because I thought I was going to break down. Abby was just touching away at the answers and when she couldn't get her little hand to move she would lean forward and kiss the answer. Abby's nurse and I were beside ourselves. The software was $275.00 so we couldn't get it just yet and the computer is $1200.00 at Walmart but it's the next big thing I want to get. I wish you all could of seen her. I was so proud! Details on this one here.

We got some more video of Abby walking today. We have had this harness for a while but the first time we used it we had too much slack in it and she fell so I had put it up.
I think Abby has severe vertigo and low body awareness because if you take your hands off her she looks like she's dizzy and has almost no ability to catch herself. She loves to walk but tires much easier than she used to so we are only doing a block a day for now. Hope to have her back up to her 30 minutes soon.

Ok ok. Sorry for going so long without an update. We have been super busy. Always something to do. We have been focusing on getting Abby healthy. We've been doing more swim therapy and physical therapy and her Extended school year just ended.
This is video we got yesterday of her flirting with her Daddy while having some yogurt covered raisens.
