Talking with Home - Aria MacDonald

Talking with Home

Aria had a pretty good day today. Although the themes of the day were napping and asking for drinks of water.

The highlight of her day today was skyping with Nana and Poppa back home.

When she woke up and I showed her who was on the computer, she asked me to keep the computer where she could see it and tried her best to interact with them, giving a little wave and nodding and shaking her head. I think she liked to see some very familiar faces that she has been missing for a while.

It must be odd for Aria, she has ‘lost’ so many familiar people out of her life and had them replaced by lots of new faces, most of whom come and ‘bother’ her in her bed. She has her favourites (and not so favourites), it is cute to see her give people her trust and then start bossing them around.

It’s also hard to know how much time she remembers with the sedation she has had… maybe it doesn’t seem so long ago that she saw them last.

Anywho, it is nice to see Aria shining through in these small ways and to see how much family means to her, as we know she means so much to so many.
