We have been home more than 2 full days now and are slowly settling in. It’s nice to see Taylor continue to become her old self again now that she is in the home setting. When we were unpacking her clothes that had been sent back from her dorm room in Boston, she enjoyed going through them and remembering what she had as I described them to her. She also expressed interest in going to a mall to get some skinny jeans, which had all been discarded in clearing out her dorm room after her accident. When we were at Craig, she usually didn’t care which pajama pants or T-shirt was chosen for her to wear.
She also asked if she could “watch” TV, which is another thing she never expressed interest in at Craig. Before her accident, Taylor was a big reality show fan. Since she’s been home, she has been enjoying listening to the reality shows and jokes that she should be allowed to watch them because watching TV is good exercise for her eyes.
It makes me happy that Taylor is still interested in things that she enjoyed, like clothes and reality TV, before her accident. To me, these are signs that she continues to recover her old self.
