I have almost achieved the ability to talk about it without crying. Andy and I are on cloud nine and I am sure a certain Neurologist in St Louis is too.
Clapping your hands together is a gift. It is a neurological ability that we never thought we would see from our girl. We haven’t been quite sure all of her life if she simply couldn’t do it or if her hands were numb from medications or seizures, to do it. Was it a skill lost forever? Would she ever use her hands for purposeful play?
Today I am finally taking a deep breath and sharing with all of you. I have been so very worried that it would disappear and that speaking about it would make it *POOF* go away. Funny how struggles and fears make you superstitious.
Enjoy the beauty of clapping
