HelpX. We heard about HelpX through friends who regularly have international people staying at their home. They give 4 hours of work in exchange for accommodation and food. Ruth is so excited about having international people come and stay. She specifically wants someone from Germany. :-)
It's been lovely to see Asher showing more and more affection to Shadow. Even though I don't have the time to put into intensive Epilepsy Assist training with Shadow, she is at least being a "therapy" dog for Asher. This is so good for her.
Thursday was a very busy day for me too. I had a very long to do list and was rather pleased with how much I got through. I realized that a couple of the items needed to rather go on a more "long term" to do list and I will keep this one for just the daily things.
Friday 29th: Asher had a 4 minute semi-conscious episode this evening at 7:15. She had started walking out the room and I could jut tell by the way she was walking that something was wrong. Brendon went to pick her up and immediately saw that she was indeed having an episode. We could tell clearly when it was over as she blinked and started closing her eyes for a nap.
Up till that point she could not speak. Once her eyelids were moving I got a small "hi" from her. We are again thankful that she has had a good 15 day gap since the last seizure.
Saturday 30th: We all had a chuckle at lunch time today when Little Miss was spotted, lying in exactly the same position that Shadow loves.
She got a little disturbed by the attention and lifted her head. So Ruth took these photos too. Looking like a cat statue.
It looks all fancy like this (right).
It was also a blessing to have a friend remind me at church that God was not surprised by this. He has Asher in the palm of His hand.
I have taken quite a few photos of Asher on slides as I want one for her picture book.
