6 Days

I (Kit) have been away from Taylor for 6 days. The progress that Taylor has made in just 6 days is amazing. The biggest change for me is her wakefulness and her ability to speak words now that her trach has been capped.  The whole time I was with her today (afternoon and evening), she was awake and aware. Her voice is still very soft and her words airy and slurred, but she’s getting there! She asked about her brother and when he was arriving (he’ll be visiting next week over his Spring break), and she wanted me to read from this website. She smiled every time I read a comment from someone she knew. She also got to order soft foods from the hospital menu for the very first time because she has advanced enough to start on solid foods. Tomorrow, she has about 3 hours of therapy. She finally fell asleep at around 9pm.

  4. Taylor!! I am so proud of all your progress. I’m so bummed that I wasn’t able to Skype in with Rachel and Kyra the other day but I’ll text your parents to set up another session. I will hopefully get to see you soon because I’m making moves to both Colorado and California at the end of May. The Outsidelands Line-up just came out and it looks so good! We might not make it this year but I’m setting my sights on 2015. Also La Verdes and Anna’s called me to say that they are going out of business without you. I love you so much and you are in my thoughts constantly. Keep of the good work!

I love you tons and am so happy to hear about all the wonderful things that you are doing. I am also happy you are starting to eat solid foods now!! Does this mean I can start mailing food care packages with chocolate??

    • Hi Yiping,
      I read Taylor your comment about the care package. She smiled really big and said, “yes!”

      • Hi Ms. Shaw!

        Thank you so much for you message!! I’m putting finishing touches on her care package, but I have a question: what is Taylor’s favorite type of chocolate (white, milk, or dark)?
