Wow, I haven't been able to post in this for some time due to not being able to log in, but finally got it squared away. It has been a busy year. Carol continues to amaze. She still does hand therapy on her right hand, which has alot of function now. She still doesn't wear a left hand prosthesis, she doesn't feel that it helps her much. It doesn't "sense" anything, so that is the issue there. Her legs are doing very well. She has therapy still out walking about, and she is getting good at walking on main roads safely. She has been getting training the the department of services for the blind on that for quite some time. Other things she has been busy with, besides the girls, are speaking a little bit. She seems to have some aspirations to do some, I don't know what exactly to call it, but people are interested in hearing her talk about herself, and she seems to like to do it. I don't really do her make up anymore, help her with food anymore. The only thing I really help Carol with is setting out her clothes in the morning, which she told me this last weekend I won't have to do much longer. She really has gained 95% of her independence back. The girls are 3 and 4 now. Chloe started preschool and is doing great there. they both are really blossoming lately, getting real smart, playing more and more outside. We have the same nanny, who is always great. She will be leaving us in March next year, so we will have to deal with getting someone new at that point. I tried to start explaining that one to the girls and turns out wasn't the best idea. All I heard for a couple days was "when is nanny leaving us? Tomorrow?" Both girls are doing girly stuff like ballet, and gymnastics, which they really love.
In January SELF magazine is doing a story on Carol. They have been out to the house a couple times this year planning for that and taking pictures. I will try and post somemore now that I can access this again. We had pictures done yesterday's at Willow's. Carol looks great in this picture!!
