This evening I had to take Elijah's latest prescription to a new pharmacy because our "usual" was out of the drug we needed. The cashier putting the prescription in their system and setting Eli up as a new patient asked me "is he allergic to any drugs or have any medical concerns?" I looked at her and thought for a moment. Do I dive into my son's medical concerns? I replied "no" with a smile like I was really getting away with something. It has had me giggling all night.
I also picked up some hearing aid batteries. For those of you who are long time Eli Journey Members, you know that when he was teeny tiny, he had a bone conduction hearing aid. That's the type that just sits on your head with a strap. It literally sounds like a microphone in your head (I've tried it). David thought we should try it again because of how often Eli says a very genuine "what?" in our conversations. I put a new battery in the five year old device and it came to life (thank you Lord). I placed it on Elijah's head and started talking to him in a subdued voice and the child smiled from EAR TO EAR. He asked if he could keep it on and if he could take it to school. Maybe David is on to something. We'll see.
A dear friend of mine, at the young age of 55, died last week after finding out she had cancer only days before. I will miss her posts on this blog and her encouraging phone calls to me. mhh you will be missed.
Love you all,
P.S. Aren't David's videos amazing. I watch them over and over so impressed with his abilities. :)
