I gotta tell you . . . Sumana is quickly learning the art of positive self talk. She's starting to go places around the house and not ask for help. I hear her say, "Ok, scoot forward a little. Ok, a little more. Feet on the ground. Nose over toes. Push up." How stinkin' cute! She does this all the time. She's her own cheerleader. Yea!! Go Sumana!!!
Today, Sumana's attitude is very good. She's very happy. The bummer is that when she's sitting quietly there's no coughing. (I originally thought that was good). However, when she went up to get dressed, did her PT exercises and breathing exercises the nasty coughing was back. The poor kid is in trouble today. Mom is going to be 'on' her all day about coughing. With her history of pneumonia I know 'it's' out there just waiting to flare up. As long as she's coughing I think that means 'it's' not settling in her lungs. So, let the battle begin!
Please pray for Sumana's appetite as well as healing. She hasn't eaten much of anything since Wednesday. If it doesn't improve by Monday, I'll call her neurosurgeon and/or pediatrician.
We're looking forward to going to church tomorrow. Sumana is planning on it ('unless she's coughing'). However, I at least want her to try going to choir to see if we can 'make' her cough!! (Sumana has such a sadistic mom, huh??!!)
