I ended my last blog by saying that we were taking Aaron to the zoo. I wish you could have seen his excitement and joy at being there with me and Gary. He has a way of jerking his leg when he’s excited, like a little kick, and he did that multiple times. He laughed so loud that we had to tell him to tone it down several times. But his joy gave us such joy, especially after the sadness of the day before. https://hesaidwhatks.blog/2021/04/27/the-autism-two-step/
This was my favorite picture of the day. He and the gorilla had a moment, and how I wish I knew what that gorilla was thinking!
I sent the picture to our kids and told them that Aaron was the one in the white shirt. Just kidding, just kidding!!
Then Andrea said, “That gorilla looks a little miffed.”
“I think he’s been around Aaron,” I told her. “I’ve seen that look on all our faces.” 😊 😊
On Wednesday, when I picked Aaron up from his day group, he came to the car carrying these.
His friend, Victoria, celebrated her birthday the day before when Aaron was at the zoo, so she saved some balloons for her buddy. Now Gary has a balloon by his desk, and I have two in our bedroom. Aaron does love to share.
Like today, after Meals on Wheels, he decided he would save this for Gary.
One French Fry.
But that one French Fry was very important to Aaron, there among his chicken tenders he brought home. He immediately gave it to Gary when we walked in the garage, to eat right away, want to or not!
Aaron can bounce from one thing to another, and one mood to another. Gary and I are along for the ride on most days. I sure am thankful to know that God is our driver, though, in the long run.
Aaron has an MRI of his brain in the morning, just to double check that nothing is going on. It’s been a long time since he’s had one and his seizures have been a little weird lately, so it’s best to be safe.
I’m praying for no seizures tonight so we can go tomorrow. Praying for good results. I would really appreciate your prayers as well, for which I thank all of you VERY much!
Like I said, how good it is to know that God is in the driver’s seat!
And Aaron is in the front seat, too, if he has his way because he is ALWAYS in the front seat and he must listen to his current music CD and if there is more than one of that group it must be played in the right yearly order and he must control when it comes on and when it goes off and keep track of which song is playing and what number it is and what the title is and……..
